John Woo was once considered the god Director of Action films . From Hard Target to Broken Arrow to Face off to Mission Impossible the list is endless . One of the very first directors of Cross over cinema ( Hong Kong to Hollywood) Woo was the most sought after talent in the 90’s to early 2000’s.
Woo returns after 2 years to direct his latest outing Man Hunt Starring Zhang Hanyu and Ha ji wong.the film tells the late of an Accused of heinous crimes he didn’t commit, a prosecutor sets out on a mission to clear his name what he unravels in a far greater plot.
Woo a pioneer in the Action Genre and still considered one of the greatest of all times seems to have lost his touch . The trailer of man Hunt looks dated and the Action lacks the finesse one see’s in movies today. His taking hasn’t changed much since hard target and he’s incorporated some very outdated Shots of people breaking through the mirrors in a slightly high frame rate.
Woo has been an inspiration to generations and we hope he finds his inspiration and gets his touch back. The film hits theater in Hong Kong on the 23rd of November .
We at amdb.in wish the entire team all the very best.
