John Woo, eat your heart out! - killerdoo
Before John Woo's highly acclaimed film of the same name, there was Frank Miller's work. Of course both names are readily recognizable, especially with Frank Miller, due to the success of such adaptations like Sin City and 300, but for his die-hard fans, Miller's work was always worth the price of admission (after all, what's a few bucks in comparison to owning a work as innovative as that of Hard Boiled?) before there ever was the Holly hype and glory.

Hard Boiled, like so many of Frank Miller's work, is violent, gritty, and hard to stomach at times - essentially what makes Frank's work so impressive and what we've all come to appreciate. But when moving beyond the violence, the blood and gore, and what have you, therein lies a deeper story, a complex web that leaves the reader reeling in shock, and awe. It takes the realm of real and pushes it far beyond the surreal so that it can push important issues such as mortality, morality, reality, and ultimately, forgiveness into dialogue with the reader.
