Poor John Woo...

"Michael Jennings is not a super agent, he's an engineer."

Ever since John Woo trotted off to Hollywood, the quality of his output has gradually declined. Following the days of Hard-Boiled, A Better Tomorrow and The Killer, director Woo moved into Hollywood and made his mark with the underrated Hard Target and the exceptional action-thriller Face/Off.

The future kind of sucks. (425 movies items)

"Reason for the future sucking: Ben Affleck's character has created a machine that can predict the future! Obviously, bad guys want it so they can do EVIL things with it. Year it takes place: The near future"
