The dream sequence involving the gun battle at Ruthless Ruth's is very close to the opening sequence of The Killer (1989) by John Woo. For example, John Stamos enters by knocking on the door, shooting someone in the stomach, forcing his way in by using two guns (one in each hand) simultaneously and then shooting the bartender (who is armed with a shotgun). There is also a Mexican standoff between the Kate Vernon and Eileen Brennan, which is very common in a John Woo movie. See more
