About the movie:
Hard Boiled, also known as Lashou Shentan in Chinese version, is an action movie directed by internationally and critically acclaimed Chinese film director John Woo. The movie was released in 1992 which stars Chow Yun-Fat and Tony Leung Chiu Wai.

The film is about Inspector "Tequila", a tough police from Hong Kong who lost his partner after a deadly encounter with a ruthless group of gun smugglers. Tequila continues his investigation on gun smuggling. He soon gets himself into more trouble by trying to arrest the right hand man of Hoi, the leader of the notorious gang in Hong Kong. He didn't know that Tony is actually an undercover cop (Tony Leung) trying to have some information about the group's activities.

Hard Boiled excels in action because of its intensity. Director John Woo uses his slow-motion trademark in gun-battle scenes, impressive action stunts and choreography and a good character development as the movie progresses.
