The film that opened up the Western market for the Hong Kong action genre. John Woo's characteristic mix of anarchic humour and high body-counts coalesce in this action-thriller about a renegade cop who takes on a group of Triad gun-runners who have been hiding their product in a hospital morgue. The film is famous for the scene where Chow Yun Fat attempts to evacuate a maternity ward amidst raining bullets before the hospital explodes. Available in various versions: dubbed or subtitled.

Jason, Bellville. 21 April 2006

If Hard Boiled be your passion then this disc be your prize. The movie is as good as ever, only this disc affords it the treatment it deserves. Still no extras, which is a shame since some commentaries or interviews wouldn't go amiss. No, the main extra here seems to be the newly mastered DD 5.1 and DTS tracks, plus the usual mono mix for the purists. They're not the most dynamic mixes - the shootouts sound great, don't get me wrong, but could have used some more directionality.

The picture is now anamorphic widescreen and has also benefitted from the remastering. Not perfect, but a marked improvement over the previous versions.

This is perhaps the ultimate version of my all-time favourite film. That's "ultimate" as in "this is as good as you're gonna get it".
