I was recently watching some videos by a YT channel called Rossotron and like all the big action enthusiasts (Kain's Quest is also good) they expressed a love for the 1992 classic Hard Boiled. Personally it's number one, surpassing The Killer and rounding off the classic HK movies of John Woo and Chow Yun Fat that came after their breakthrough in A Better Tomorrow. It's crazy to think both were know for comedy before this. It's the kind of thing some audiences would probably find too gruelling or melodramatic (or both) but this kind of thing never gets old for me. Anyone else? I still enjoy Bullet in the Head (sans Chow) and A Better Tomorrow II (sans restraint) of course but these are lesser entries.
