On 24th July 2007, two of director John Woo’s legendary action classics – Hard Boiled and Last Hurrah for Chivalry – will be released on Region 1 DVD by The Weinstein Company and Genius Products under the Dragon Dynasty banner. Famous for extraordinary action in legendary sequences such as the opening tea-house bust and the explosive warehouse betrayal, Hard Boiled also features a rampaging thirty-minute final showdown. Teaming international action icons Chow Yun-Fat and Tony Leung, Hard Boiled maintains a deft balance between its stunning gunfights and its tortured emotional core.
