You could conceivabl­y fill a list like this with almost nothing but John Woo movies. Our favorite, however, kicks off with one of the single most amazing gunfights ever committed to celluloid: a chaotic teahouse shootout incorporat­ing ballistics, birds, and beaucoup slo-mo, which peaks with supercop Chow Yun-Fat sliding down a staircase’s banister with both pistols blazing. You can see why they call Woo’s graceful action films “bullet ballets.”
