After seeing both of these films on video, I wished with all my heart I'd seen them on the big screen. Despite John Woo's success with "Face/Off," after seeing "Hard Boiled," I realized just how much the American movie system dumbed down his work. "The Killer" is a nifty little thriller more about friendship, loyalty, and redemption than about filling flying bodies with lead in slow motion. While some of its scenes are a bit trite, the overall message is sincere, heartfelt, and punctuated with an almost Shakespearean tragic ending. (4 of 5 stars) "Hard Boiled," though, is the perfect action movie. No car chases or aerial stunts are to be found here, but I assure you that it goes through MANY shell casings with extreme grace and style before its operatic denoument. Chow Yun Fat gives a more wrenching performance in "The Killer," but here he exudes his famous charisma like a fire hydrant in summer. "Hard Boiled" is every action fan's dream come true. (5 of 5 stars) Overall: 4 1/2 stars for the two films together.

Hard Boiled is one of (if not THE) best action movie ever. Woo's gunfights are like some kind of lethal, but beautiful, dance, especially the opening scene in the teahouse; I've yet to see a better action scene. The Killer is a little more dramatic, but no less good for it. I love the way that Woo interweaves violence and religion, the last shootout in the church is cool (this was probably the inspiration for the standoff in Face/Off). Of course, how could I forget Chow Yun Fat? He is the man, and although he is often typecast as the "killer with a conscince" I haven't gotten tired of it (even in Anna and the King, he was a bad-a**). If you thought Face/Off and Misson Impossible 2 were cool, The Killer and Hard Boiled blows them away.

Two of the best Hong Kong Movies ever. John Woo's flair for poetic and stylized violence is unbelievable. These movies have to be seen to be believed. Although its says above that it's dubbed in unknown, it's dubbed in English. Congrats to Fox Lober on a decent job in the dubbing process. Most of America's action movies pale in comparrison. Chow Yun-Fat is excellent in the two movies that made him an international superstar, along with John Woo. If you liked BROKEN ARROW,FACE/OFF,BIG HIT, or REPLACEMENT KILLERS,these are should be seen! Definitely worth the price!

The killer/Hard Boiled have to be two of the best action films ever made. The killer however, I found too be a little too dramatic. Hard Boiled on the other hand, is an absolutley top notch action/thriller. The action in even the most intense American films pale in comparison. I would have rated this set five stars but, I found The Killer too be a bit to dramatic and opera-like. But any way you look at it these are the best action films by John Woo to date!
