Default Movie Review: Hard Boiled

Hard Boiled is John Woo's last Hong Kong action flick he made before he joined the Hollywood studio machine and helmed such rotten garbage as the "Gone in 60 Seconds" remake. While not a "biker flick" per se it has more biker action than other flicks billed as biker flicks like "Wild Riders".

Hard boiled follows the usual paper thin plot of "cop on the edge getting revenge against the criminals who killed his partner". It suffers a bit also from the incoherency you get from any foreign flick translated into english. But who cares about that! What you do get is a lot of John Woo action, explosions, crashes and hot brass casings bouncing everywhere. There are 3 excellent set piece action sequences and a few smaller ones. The last one taking up about the last 1/2 hour of the movie.

Of special interest are the flying exploding dual purpose bikes in a giant warehouse including the requisite incorrect engine sounds foleyed in. You get kung fu, gun fu, foot fu, motorcyle fu, cigarette lighter fu, bad action movie joke fu and random gratuitous violence against about anything you can imagine.

As Joe Bob Briggs sez: 4 stars, check it out.

Available on Netflix.

The Best $10 flying exploding motorcycle I ever had, I got from a Chinese Chop-socky-Star, selling out of the back of a Fireworks Stand..............
