I love both Hard Boiled and The Killer, which I prefer depends on the day, though I think the latter is probably better plotted and streamlined. Either way, they now represent an era in both John Woo films and Hong Kong action movies in general that is long gone and makes me a bit nostalgic. The episode of the podcast in which I talk about this film is combined with The Killer.
