We’re looking at John Woo’s 1992 film, Hard-Boiled, the story of a hot-handed supercop, Tequila, (Chow Yun-Fat), and an undercover cop -- either Alan or Tony depending on what version you watch, played by Tony Leung. Tony and Tequila are working two sides of the same case involving the dastardly Johnny Wong (Anthony Wong). More than being a case of cops and robbers, the film is a farewell to the Hong Kong that Woo once knew and a farewell before emigrating to the U.S. for the next phase of his career.
Beth Accomando and Jess Byard join Mike to discuss this action-packed thriller.
