"Most things go in and out of style - that is with the exception of war of course."
The Bitches Brew of action cinema, a jazzy, melancholic, hyperkinetic, slam-bang tornado of bullets, explosions, smoke, blood, fire, sparks and body movement. John Woo pushing his signature style into the highest degree while painting an almost apocalyptical battle between crime and law enforcment, where even the youngest in born into violence and destinated to pick up the weapons of their elders. One of the greatest accomplishments of analogue filmmaking, you watch this and know that every pyrotechnic, every stunt, every destruction effect is painstakingly hand-made with directorial perfectionism. The last 45 minutes is just one large setpiece, yet it never feels exhausting but constantly thrilling and jawdropping. An all time personal favorite for me and many others.
