Hard-Boiled (HK 1992)

Rating: ****
Director: John Woo
Cast: Chow Yun Fat, Tony Leung (Chiu Wai), Teresa Mo, Anthony Wong, Philip Chan, Philip Kwok.

The highest squib budget of any film. This is John Woo's action masterpiece with amazing choreography and cinematography. Non-stop action, excessive gunplay, high body count, and lots of things exploding. Also features my favorite Chow Yun Fat persona, and he has never looked better. Tony Leung is an undercover cop whose efforts are nearly destroyed by hot-headed cop Chow Yun Fat. The two of them finally realize that they're on the same side and team up to take down a nasty psychotic triad boss (Anthony Wong). Great stuff.
