Director: John Woo | Stars: Yun-Fat Chow, Danny Lee, Sally Yeh, Kong Chu

Этот боевик Джона Woo должен храниться во французской палате мер и весов — почти не прекращающийся в течение всех двух часов экшн с сотнями тысяч выпущенных во все стороны пуль, эталонной постановкой перестрелок, тонной свежих идей явно снят человеком из другого мира — в Голливуде ему такой свободы не давали. Авторы американские боевиков внимательно изучали этот опыт.

A reforming ex-gangster tries to reconcile with his estranged policeman brother, but the ties to his former gang are difficult to break.

Director: John Woo | Stars: Lung Ti, Leslie Cheung, Yun-Fat Chow, Emily Chu

Votes: 17,138

Первый "правильный" боевик Джона Woo, положивший начало его кровавой серии зубодробильных экшнов с обязательными элементами древнегреческой трагедии. Обязательный Chow Yun-Fat в одной из главных ролей — нереально харизматичный актер, играющий как всегда противоречивого персонажа. Перестрелки еще не такие сумасшедшие как в последующих фильмах, но чувствуются первые наброски.

A restauranteur teams up with a police officer and his ex-con brother to avenge the death of a friend's daughter.

Director: John Woo | Stars: Leslie Cheung, Yun-Fat Chow, Lung Ti, Dean Shek

Votes: 7,813

Бесконечно крутой ранний боевик Джона Woo, идеальное продолжение его первого фильма в жанре. Отличнейшие персонажи с сильной предысторией и внятной мотивацией, еще более развитая лично-семейно-дружеская драма, идеальная склейка разных частей сюжета. Тут впервые появляется фирменное мочилово режиссера — серия бесконечных перестрелок с эпическим финалом в большом доме.

Крайне специфичное зрелище в плане актерской игры и вообще гонконгского антуража, зато идея и персонажи очень эффектны, было бы здорово увидеть хороший римейк.
