Action master John Woo directs Bullet in the Head, a violent, dramatic, and utterly compelling action film set in wartime Vietnam! Ben (Cannes Best Actor winner Tony Leung Chiu Wai), Frank (Jacky Cheung), and Paul (Waise Lee) are three longtime buddies who cruise the Hong Kong streets together circa 1967. But when Ben accidentally kills a rival gang member, the trio of friends decide to leave Hong Kong to make their fortune together...in wartime Vietnam. Entrenched in lawless Saigon, the three find their honor tested, as the twisted reality of a world at war intrudes upon their bonds of childhood brotherhood. Greed, desire, and self-preservation threaten to divide them, and even the best of intentions can go incredibly awry. Ultimately, friend must oppose friend, and a bullet to the head can be the only solution.
Considered John Woo's masterpiece, Bullet in the Head features some of the most powerful, striking images ever seen in a Hong Kong film. At the same time, it possesses Woo's trademark romanticized violence and themes of heroic bloodshed, as well as his penchant for hyper-realistic melodrama. John Woo also delivers standout set pieces, including a harrowing sequence in a Vietnamese prison, and an explosive finale on the streets of Hong Kong. Co-starring Simon Yam as a cool Eurasian assassin, Bullet in the Head is powerful, wrenching, and undeniably affecting Hong Kong filmmaking at its finest!
