Eight Epic John Woo Fight Scenes


I once wrote a post called The 10 Best Movies Gunfights of All Time. As time went on, it was pointed out to me that somehow I managed to not include a single John Woo movie in the list.  That completely blew me away but it was somewhat understandable.  When I think John Woo, I usually think fight scenes and not necessarily the use of guns.  Though Woo is certainly synonymous with action so this post was a given.

I just watched The Killer for the first time today, and I now realized that this was a serious mistake. As an apology to Mr. Woo, I have drafted an entire post dedicated to his awesomely orchestrated fight scenes. Most of them are gun related, a few of them are fisticuffs and all of them are incredibly awesome

Check them out below:

Blackjack (1998)

Hard Target (1993)

Hard Boiled (1992)

The Killer (1989)

Mission Impossible II (2000)

Face/Off (1997)

Broken Arrow (1996)

Red Cliff (2008)
