John Woo's Stranglehold rocks !

Hi gamers,

This is to the delight of all you John Woo fans. As far back as I can remember, I had always been a fan of John Woo's films. Though they might not be cinematic masterpieces, they really pack that punch in the emotion and action conveyed that hits you straight into your bosom. And it is widely acknowledged fact that his movies sprouted a new genre of film making and also the more popular SLO-MO action sequences that became a craze in the hollywood milieu with John Woo's directorial masterpiece "Face Off" that also starred the uber cool John Travlota and the award winner Nicholas Cage. The movie was slickly packaged like never before and it packed so much style along with emotional content that it made John Woo the darling of the American cine goers over night.

Soon after the success of his Hollywood film, his home town movies came to light. The first of the several Honk Kong flicks were "The Killer" and "Hard Boiled" that immediately made Chow-Yun-Fat a common name in the U.S. The Killer had some of the best moments seen on the Honk Kong silver screen. Hard Boiled packed John Woo's punch all the way and the movie had the brunt of his style delivered powerfully through his raw cop character "Tequila" played by Yun-Fat. After years, the classic film which is also a cult film now is coming to the consoles and the PC in an interactive game version ! So, its a delight to all gamers and film buffs alike. After all, you get to play your favorite action hero, blasting through the breakable environment, and most importantly, all in the style you always relished on screen, would anyone miss out on the opportunity ?!! Catch the game DVD at your stores as soon as you can ! My review about this game will follow soon !
