Essential. This Hong Kong action spectacular—the last film Woo made in Hong Kong before coming for a spell to Hollywood—stars Chow Yun-Fat as a seen-it-all detective named “Tequila” navigating the underworld of the territory’s gangster triads, and Tony Leung as an undercover agent and his reluctant partner. Pure visual poetry, Hard Boiled is a masterpiece of balletic choreography from one of the most innovative action filmmakers who ever lived.
