I just did a search online for TOP10 action movies of all time (not based on money) and some of the lists are just stupid.
Lawrence of Arabia? Saving Private Ryan? Live and Let Die?
Those first two aren't even action movies… they just have action in them. Secondly, Live and Let Die is the second worst Bond film ever.
What the hell?
Look. Hard Boiled is considered Woo's best movie. It's a ballet. The only thing that comes close to this is Iron Monkey… and they really aren't compariable… or maybe Face/Off, which is another Woo film.
If you want good Woo action, see the follow (in this order)
- The Killer (Dip huet seung hung)
- Hard Boiled (Lat sau san taam)
I don't care what anyone says about Face/Off, it's really good. And the action in these movies is unparalleled. Even Jackie Chan has a hard time competing with this stuff. It's just so creative and over the top.
