Legendary Action Director John Woo Returns With Manhunt

  • LRM Online
For fans of action films, the 1980s was a golden age, beginning with all-time classics such as, First Blood and Raiders of the Lost Ark, and on and on with epics like Die Hard, Lethal Weapon, Escape From New York, and Robocop. This amazing period also marked the rise of incredible action stars like Schwarzenegger, Norris, Willis, Ford, Cruise, and Murphy -- many of whom are obviously still working today (for better or worse).

Yet, the 80s was also an incredible decade for action directors, such as James Cameron, John Carpenter, Richard Donner, and George Miller. However, one of the most unexpected and influential action directors of that era was Hong Kong's John Woo, whose distinct visual style somehow managed to stand apart from his Western contemporaries. Woo was an innovator, a director who borrowed elements from different genres, resulting in something new, unique, and unmistakably visceral. A Hong Kong-based

Face/Off at 20: revisiting the film

Paul Martinovic Jul 28, 2017

John Travolta and Nicolas Cage scored a big hit in John Woo's Face/Off. We take a look back...

One of the great pleasures of following genre cinema is the long, enduring onscreen conversation that’s taken place between movie directors from the East and the West, a creative push and pull which has resulted in some of the most boundary-pushing, inventive and important films ever made. When Akira Kurosawa wrote The Hidden Fortress, an airy homage to the John Ford Westerns he loved so much, he can’t have predicted its rollicking adventuring would be re-interpreted and sent into space by George Lucas to form the basis of the most successful film franchise in history in Star Wars: A New Hope. Similarly, when Ringo Lam took the tropes of 70’s Eurocrime and American gangster movies of the 30s and 40s, and upped the machismo and

From Hard Boiled to Soft Boiled: Why John Woo’s masterpiece will never be matched again

Tom Jolliffe revisits John Woo’s action masterpiece Hard Boiled

John Woo had already made quite a name for himself in China, thanks to hit action classics such as A Better Tomorrow and The Killer. In 1992 he released the film which would see him transition from Hong Kong director, to Hollywood. The film was Hard Boiled a tale of two cops (one deep undercover within a criminal organisation) who come together explosively and join forces to take down a deranged crime lord who has monopolised the criminal underworld.

At this point the action genre was at its pinnacle for pure spectacle. We’d had the 80’s, full of classics such as Die Hard, the Indiana Jones franchise, and then came Terminator 2: Judgement Day (and the aforementioned Woo films). Jackie Chan too was rising to prominence in Hong Kong, known for the intricacy of his ground breaking fight sequences (and

Newswire: Jean-Claude Van Damme gets his own high-octane coloring book

  • The AV Club
So-called “adult coloring books” have become rather popular of late, and they’re just fine for people who want to decompress by meticulously filling in nature scenes or calming geometric patterns. But for those who want their coloring books to contain plenty of high-kicking, spine-snapping, blood-spilling action, artist and writer Ryan Durr has created JCVDots. This old-school activity book is filled with connect-the-dots puzzles, word searches, and ready-to-color scenes based on the career of Belgian-born actor and martial artist Jean-Claude Van Damme, a man popularly known as “The Muscles From Brussels” or simply “Jcvd.”

Here’s an opportunity for readers to fill in the actor’s magnificent mullet from 1993’s Hard Target:

Fans can also use their crayons to depict bodybuilder Bolo Yeung’s formidable pecs from 1988’s Bloodsport. For those unfamiliar with the film, Van Damme feigned blindness in this sequence, hence the stance ...

Alamo Drafthouse Comes to Brooklyn: An Inside Look at New York City’s Newest Theater

No one would accuse New Yorkers of being starved for options when it comes to going to the movies. From cultural institutions like Film Society of Lincoln Center, BAMcinématek, Museum of the Moving Image, and Film Forum, to indie theatres IFC Center and Nitehawk, to bar/theatre hybrids Videology and Syndicated, to the many, many multiplexes, you’ll never hurt for options when it comes to finding a great film to see on the big screen on any given weekend. Exciting newcomers like Metrograph proved it is still possible to make an impact with even the most jaded NYC cinephiles, while the fate of upscale theatres like iPic is yet to be seen.

Interview: Scott Adkins and Robert Knepper Talk Hard Target 2 (Exclusive)
Embarking on self-destructive behavior during the most harrowing points of their lives is often a natural inclination people have when they feel as though they don’t deserves redemption. But when they realize that they can use their skills to improve the situation they find themselves in, not only for themselves but also for society’s greater good, their intuition leads them to strive to capitalize on that chance. That powerful atonement process is highlighted in the protagonist’s predicament in the new action film, ‘Hard Target 2.’ The thriller, which was directed by Roel Reiné, serves as a sequel to the 1993 movie, ‘Hard Target.’ The original action film starred Jean-Claude Van [ Read More ]

Classic Action Stars: Who truly is the best?

With Jean-Claude Van Damme hitting the big screen this month in Kickboxer: Vengeance (a remake of his 1989 smash hit) we decided to find out who is the greatest of the legendary Eighties action heroes. Who kicked hardest, fought longest and has the staying power to be the last man standing? Let the fight begin!

Sylvester Stallone

Evidence: Sylvester Stallone is not only an enduring action star of note – from Rambo and Rocky, Cobra to Cliffhanger, right through to The Expendables, Sly has always set the box office cash tills ringing; but he is also an Oscar-nominated writer, a director, and even a painter. There is, it seems, very little he cannot do.

Verdict: Stallone is more rennaisance man than action hero king.

Dolph Lundgren

Evidence: At 6ft 5 and built like a Sherman tank, Swedish powerhouse Lundgren has taken on James Bond and Rocky, played The Punisher, a Universal Soldier and was one of The Expendables.
