3.5 out of 10 Hard Boiled
Stuart from Dublin, 01 Aug 2009
Good action movie with many shootouts and a storyline that makes sense. Many people might enjoy it even if action isnt their favourite,but it may also only be shootout fans as their is a ton of bullets in the movie,though there is always a motive for the violence and it isnt a silly action film at all. It lives up to the title and it is violent but not gory. It does make me wonder if something close to this has happened in Hong Kong,but to the extent of the movie surely not. Well made movie with

What's it about....
When a tough police officer's (Chow Yun-Fat) partner is brutally murdered, he joins forces with another loose-cannon cop (Tony Leung) to exact his own bloody revenge on the gun-smuggling gangsters responsible for his friend's death. A lot of action, guns, and violence, all masterfully rendered by action maestro John Woo (THE KILLER, MISSION IMPOSSIBLE 2). This is the last film the director made in his native Hong Kong before emigrating to the United States.
