Weak John Woo film. Some good action scenes, but no heart. See Bullet in the Head instead.

Choreographically stunning like most of Woo's work, especially before he headed West.

The action sequences here are less overtly beautiful than in his previous films, but they're far more complex and explosive.

Accomplishes a lot within its time frame, and it's an accomplishment only Woo is capable of.

John Woo's poetically violent action sequences are his trademark, and Hard-Boiled features three stunning examples.

A moody, tense, moving and action-packed crime drama -- one of Woo's very best.

Infinitely more exciting than a dozen Die Hards, action cinema doesn't come any better than this.

The final half of the movie is one loooooong action sequence that at times makes you want to stop the film, walk out and catch your breath.

Short on plot or brains, but miles-long on fantastic action and ultra-hipness. Chow Yun Fat displays a level of excellence not seen in his American-made films.
| Original Score: 5/5

Woo...proves once again that he is the king of the modern action genre.
