Question to Hong Kong action movie buffs

Postby TheA'sFatLeadoffMan » Mon Jul 23, 2007 3:13 am

Okay, I hope some of you guys exist on this forum, because I'm trying to get some movies together to watch. I just watched Fulltime Killer tonight on IFC and thought it was fantastic, and have liked other Hong Kong action flix in the past, and anyways what would fans of the genre reccomend?

So far through Netflix I have come up with:

The Mission
Running Out of Time
Breaking News
Hitman
Full Contact

I have Hard Boiled on it's way, which I'm guessing will be the best considering how widely revered it is. Should I stay away from any of those, any directors I should look for or stay away from. Also I thought Andy Lau was awesome in Fulltime Killers, if you know any movies with him in it that you would reccommend I would be esp. interested.


This is where I hope and pray I don't get crickets in here...

If you have never seen "Drunken Master", please see that

Time and Tide
The Killer
Project A

If you like a possible historical setting instead of modern Hong Kong
Iron Monkey
Once Upon a Time in China
Fist of Legend
The Storm Riders


As for Andy Lau, I think two good movies with him in it was House of Flying Daggers and Infernal Affairs.
