Everything else is a distant second. HARD BOILED is the movie that Hollywood spent the next decade copying. When that didn’t work out — or Quentin Tarantino was unavailable — they just hired Woo to do Face/Off or Mission: Impossible 2, instead.
It’s one of my favorite movies, for the sheer spectacle of those last 45 minutes or so. Remarkable work.
ZODIAC is a David Fincher movie, so you know it’ll LOOK cool, at least.
Next week: 300. And everything else will be second banana.
