Hard Target

Hard Target ★★★★

john woo nails it, transforming a mediocre script and jcvd’s limitations with his artistry into a well-crafted gem much better than most american action movies of the time - especially those to which hard target would probably be unfairly compared (like most seagal garbage). there’s a real beauty and flair here, and beyond that it’s just a lot of fun. immensely underrated, just wish there’s be a way to find and restore the directors cut.
