The Killer (1989)

A disillusioned assassin accepts one last hit in hopes of using his earnings to restore vision to a singer he accidentally blinded, only to be double-crossed by his boss. (111 mins.)
Director: John Woo
“ 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. ” - jvetrau

A Better Tomorrow (1986)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.6/10 X  
A reforming ex-gangster tries to reconcile with his estranged policeman brother, but the ties to his former gang are difficult to break. (95 mins.)
Director: John Woo
“ 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. ” - jvetrau

A Better Tomorrow II (1987)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.4/10 X  
A restauranteur teams up with a police officer and his ex-con brother to avenge the death of a friend's daughter. (105 mins.)
Director: John Woo
“ 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. ” - jvetrau
