A tough-as-nails cop teams up with an undercover agent to bring down a gun smuggling ring. Features some of the most amazing and influential action set pieces in cinematic history.
Masterful Hong Kong action director John Woo (The Killer, Face/Off) turns in this exciting and pyrotechnic tale of warring gangsters and shifting loyalties. Chow Yun-fat (The Replacement Killers) plays a take-no-prisoners cop on the trail of the triad, the Hong Kong Mafia, when his partner is killed during a gun battle. His guilt propels him into an all-out war against the gang, including an up-and-coming soldier in the mob (Tony Leung) who turns out to be an undercover cop. The two men must come to terms with their allegiance to the force and their loyalty to each other as they try to take down the gangsters. A stunning feast of hyperbolic action sequences (including a climactic sequence in an entire hospital taken hostage), Hard-Boiled is a rare treat for fans of the action genre, with sequences as thrilling and intense as any ever committed to film. --Robert LaneSee all Editorial Reviews

The DD disc also features a puzzling, horizontially STRETCHED image that makes Tony Leung and Chow Yun-fat (and everyone else) look about 20 pounds heavier than they actually are. In cropping the image FROM ALL FOUR SIDES (!!!!) and then stretching it back to fill the screen left and right,... Read More

No cuts--it's John Woo's final cut. (It's NOT the slightly longer Taiwanese version--but that's not Woo's final cut, anway). The good thing with Dragon Dynasty is the Weinsteins seemed to have turned 'a new leaf' in some aspects, offering original uncut versions, original language option, etc.
