Woo's many American admirers include the likes of Martin Scorsese
, Sam Raimi
(who compared his mastery of action to Alfred Hitchcock
's mastery of suspense) and Quentin Tarantino
(who, replying to a studio executive saying "I suppose Woo can direct action scenes" said "Sure, and Michelangelo can paint ceilings!").
His characters often mimic the actions of other their counterparts, typically accompanied by flashbacks of those scenes.
