Better Tomorrow, A

JOHN WOO DOUBLE-BARREL DOUBLE BILL with Hard Boiled

Chow Yun-Fat plays a supporting role in this melodrama about two brothers — one a cop, the other a gangster — but in one scene (the restaurant assassination), he and director Woo created a new breed of action hero, and a new kind of action film. The shootout started here, and it hasn’t paused to reload since.
