The Untouchables (1987)

Based on the classic television show, The Untouchables is a lesser effort from director Brian De Palma, whose extreme visual style is far more apparent in films like Sisters, Blow Out, and Scarface. Only the opening shot, an overhead angle showing Al Capone (Robert De Niro) getting a shave, surrounded by henchmen and reporters, shows the De Palma style. read more...

The Mask of Zorro (1998)

The Mask of Zorro, starring Antonio Banderas and Anthony Hopkins, and directed by Martin Campbell (GoldenEye) is not so much a blood-pounding swashbuckling adventure as it is a comfortable old friend--the kind of movie your grandfather might have seen at a Saturday matinee. read more...

Red Cliff (2009)

As a battle epic, John Woo's Red Cliff is as impressively mounted as Braveheart and Gladiator, but as directed by Hong Kong action master John Woo, it easily surpasses them in terms of style and grace, action and cinematography. (It is currently the all-time box office champion in China.) During the Han Dynasty, the evil Chancellor Cao Cao (Zhang Fengyi) embarks on a campaign to wipe out two rebel forces, with the might of the emperor's army on his side. Representing the two rebel armies, strategist Kongming (Takeshi Kaneshiro) and viceroy Zhou Yu (Tony Leung Chiu Wai) team up to battle Cao Cao; together they use wisdom and cunning against the villain's brute strength. The movie depicts several smaller, individual attacks and battles before building up to the final showdown. read more...

Hard-Boiled (1992)

John Woo's final Hong Kong film before moving to Hollywood, Hard-Boiled is also his most Hollywood-ready, forgoing some of the more emotionally operatic moments inherent in A Better Tomorrow (1986) and The Killer (1989). Even the usual male bonding aspect has been beefed up. read more...
