Hard Boiled Collector's Edition in September
Tartan Video have announced the UK DVD release of Hard Boiled: Collector's Edition for 27th September 2004 priced at £19.99. It’s back and it’s louder than ever. The Hong Kong action movie that exploded the doors open to Hollywood and created a new breed of gun-toting gangster.
A city teeming with gangs. A cop determined to exterminate them by playing them at their own violent game. After his partner is killed, Inspector ‘Tequila’ Yeun confronts a cunning assassin, Tony, and looks set to join him in a body bag. But Tony has a secret which could mark his own downfall.
Plot twists and flying bullets infest John Woo’s high-octane classic, and in this newly remastered uncut version, Hard Boiled: Collector's Edition is deadlier than ever, containing both the subtitled and dubbed versions of the film. It marked the dynamic path to Hollywood for John Woo, the man who brought us Face/Off and Mission Impossible 2. Chow Yun Fat (Yeun) has found box-office success in America with Bulletproof Monk whilst Wong Kar-wai’s favourite leading man Tony Leung (Tony) has since won international praise for In The Mood For Love and the latest cop smash-hit, Infernal Affairs.
Digitally remastered and encoded at optimum bit rate for the highest quality playback, you will find the original Cantonese language track and English dub track in DD5.1 Surround, and the original Cantonese language track in DTS 5.1 Surround.
