The 24 Hour Action Sequel Marathon
A BETTER TOMORROW 2Yeah, all that Greengrass-style introspection is nice, but you just want to see dudes looking great and firing guns, don’t you? Lucky for you, John Woo exists. Chow Yun Fat returns as Ken Lee, the twin brother to the first film’s Mark Lee, teaming with an informant to free a captured drug lord from crooked cops. Loyalties and allegiances collide in a firestorm of bullets and a mess of corpses, as John Woo and producer Tsui Hark absolutely outdo themselves with this ballad of blood.
BAD BOYS 2This shit just got real. The most Michael Bay-est Michael Bay movie finds us reuniting detectives Mike Lowry and Marcus Burnett in a case that involves… eh, some drugs, and some of the most absolutely insane car chases you’ve ever seen. Bad Boys 2, in all it’s misogynist, homophobic and overall misanthropy, may be the most violent movie ever made, violent not only to the sets and actors, but to the very human soul. It’s nasty stuff.
