Heh. That was fun. I've just been to see John Woo's Hard Boiled
. OK, so it still
has no plot, but the sheer levels of choreographed violence from it is just overwhelmingly impressive, and it's such a relief not to have everything in CGI. If plotless action movies have to exist, they should be like this.
I do feel I'm missing a whole stylistic language of Hong Kong action movies; there seems to be a bunch of stereotypes, visual cues and idiom that comprise a semiotic whole that I only partially understand.
