Paul and Erin review two films by Hong Kong gun-fu auteur John Woo. First: HARD BOILED, Woo's 1992 shoot-em-up starring Chow Yun-Fat and Tony Leung as a pair of cops who will stop at nothing to bring down a ruthless crime syndicate; then, FACE/OFF, Woo's gleefully preposterous 1997 blockbuster starring John Travolta as an FBI special agent who swaps faces and identities with a flamboyant international terrorist played by Nicolas Cage. An exploding hospital or a magnetic prison: which will prevail?
Plus: our quick takes on THE BOOK OF LIFE, MEN, WOMEN AND CHILDREN, HORNS, and THE WOMAN CHASER.
