Well, the plot itself isn't as nuanced as John Woo's early HK works but it's probably the best choreographed film when it comes to action shootouts. It was of course Woo's sendoff from Hong Kong to pursue filming in America (and also because he thought the Triads were on his case) and it was one fantastic one. For something deeper, I'd also recommend The Killer and A Better Tomorrow, both of which have Chow Yun-Fat (and my idol growing up for what it's worth)...and if you want something more disturbing than those, try Bullet in the Head (no CYF here).
