The film that opened up the Western market for the Hong Kong action genre. John Woo's characteristic mix of anarchic humour and high body-counts coalesce in this action-thriller about a renegade cop who takes on a group of Triad gun-runners who have been hiding their product in a hospital morgue. The film is famous for the scene where Chow Yun Fat attempts to evacuate a maternity ward amidst raining bullets before the hospital explodes. Available in various versions: dubbed or subtitled.
