Born in Guangzhou, director John Woo Yu-Sen redefined the Hong Kong action genre with his trademark “bullet ballet” action sequences, stylish slow motion, his invention of “gun fu” – shoot-outs within confined spaces – and his complex references to literary and film classics. He successfully took the same approach to films he made in the United States, which included Face/Off and Mission Impossible 2.

From the producers of John Wick comes legendary Hong Kong director Woo’s first American project in 20 years – and one of his boldest. A gritty revenge tale featuring his trademark “bullet ballet” and “gun-fu” stylings, it also has no dialogue: the thrill-a-minute story is told entirely with visuals and music. Joel Kinnaman plays a tormented father who witnesses his young son die in the crossfire during a gang fight. While recovering from a wound that has cost him his voice, he makes vengeance his life’s mission, undertaking a punishing training regime before taking on the worst of the city’s criminal underworld on Christmas Eve. A massive return to form for the pioneering director, who redefines the genre he helped create.
