"Woo’s delirious, phantasmagorical THE KILLER, which helped make an international star of actor Chow Yun-Fat, and his explosive BULLET IN THE HEAD, which starred Tony Leung. The performers’ worlds collided in Woo’s masterful 1992 HARD BOILED, in which Chow and Leung make an unlikely partnership as hardened cop and enigmatic killer.
After shifting his base of operations to the U.S. in the early 1990s, Woo turned out a string of mega-successful action films packed with his trademark mixture of humor and spectacularly choreographed violence, including HARD TARGET with Jean-Claude Van Damme and the Nicolas Cage/John Travolta hit FACE/OFF. Since then, Woo has returned to filmmaking in China, finding success with historical epics like the two-part RED CLIFF and THE CROSSING."
