Classic Action Scene: Teahouse Shootout from Hard Boiled

large_hard_boiled_blu-ray_2

Hard Boiled is without a doubt John Woo’s masterpiece; it’s a glorious ballet of violence with well-fleshed out characters, an engaging story and guns that fire endless bullets without ever needing to get reloaded.

There is officially no one cooler than Chow Yun-fat in this movie as grizzled badass cop Tequila; you know he’s cool because his name is Tequila. He slides down bannisters firing two guns, blowing bad guys away like it’s going out of fashion and chewing a toothpick.

During filming of this scene, the neighbours called the police every night to complain about the noise, but the police were fans of Woo, so they allowed him to complete shooting every night.

The Teahouse location would be demolished after 5 days.

This scene in the Tea House set the tone for the movie; over 100,000 rounds of ammunition were fired in the entire movie but I’m pretty sure the majority were during these 5 minutes.

It is indeed Hard Boiled and you rarely see this much violence and bloodshed in one movie. It’s just awesome.

Anyway, check out this classic shoot-out from one of the best action movies of all time.

I grew up watching JCVD, Sly and Arnold destroy bad guys, blow things up and spew one-liners like it's a fashion statement. Action is everything I go to the movies for and the reason I came up with this site is to share my love for the genre with everyone. We also want to help promote new talent whether you're making blockbusters, low-budget Indie movies or fan films; if it's action, it's awesome.
