Manhunt Directed by John Woo

What are people saying?

  • Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film Manhunt

    While it can't compare to the best of Woo's HK endeavours, the action & energy of Manhunt is surprisingly thrilling. The film undoubtedly coasts off the legacy of predecessors, like Hard Boiled & The Killer, with its initially grounded cop v. "crook" procedural having all the necessary trademarks & characteristics, but it also harkens back to the ludicrous but entertaining pulp sci-fi of films like Face/Off & M:I 2.

  • msmichel's rating of the film Manhunt

    Woo pisses all over his own legacy with this generic, poorly written film that almost acts as self parody not homage. At one point in his career Woo was one of the best international directors and certainly a master at action driven cinema. There is little to no evidence of that reputation here. A disheartening piece of drivel.

  • HKFanatic's rating of the film Manhunt

    John Woo's penchant for operatic tragedy and action spectacle are not served well by the screenplay for "Manhunt," which miraculously took seven writers to commit to paper. The plot - featuring shady pharmaceuticals, supersoldiers, and a lawyer on the run - feels at times like a Hitchcock-style 'wrong man' thriller, at times like willing self-parody. But there are moments that remind you of the old master's ability.

  • saitosouta's rating of the film Manhunt

    Este o experiență ridicol de mișto să văd Japonia, țara mea dragă, vopsit totul în culoarea lui John Woo; Porumbei care zboară brusc, arme duble ucigînd dușmani cu stil, bromans intens și fierbinte. Dar cel mai caraghios lucru este că una dintre asasini femeiește este fiica regizorului. Ce naiba. // 突然飛んでいく鳩、クールに敵を殺す二挺拳銃、濃密で熱いブロマンス……我が愛しき故郷である日本がジョン・ウー色に染め上げられるのを見るのはとても楽しい経験だった。だけど一番面白かったのは暗殺者の一人が監督の娘だったこと。何それ。

  • Zach Closs's rating of the film Manhunt

    Why didn't I know about this, Netflix?! A bombastic, energetic, pistol-packing soap opera as only John could deliver. He's leaning hard into the camp here, and having fun as he hasn't since Face/Off.

  • Chihao Tsang's rating of the film Manhunt

    This was awful, pure drivel, the dialogue is so clunky with a non sensical plot and under/ non developed characters. If this came out 25 years ago it would still be crap. Ha Ji-Won (h) though

  • qw0aszx's rating of the film Manhunt

    Saw the Mainland China recut version... I once thought Woo can't made a worse film than The Crossing Part I... I WAS SOOOO WRONG ...but man, I haven't laugh so hard in theatre for quite a while like this, thanks for that laughably bad written dialogues in opening sequence...

  • Martin De Martin's rating of the film Manhunt

    Il tocco del maestro è inconfondibile ed è sempre un piacere rivederlo, anche se al servizio di una sceneggiatura piuttosto risibile (anzi, diciamo pure ridicola): John Woo ne è ben consapevole e ne approfitta per infilare una notevole serie di omaggi e fanservice che renderanno felice più di qualcuno. Resta però un peccato che i valori estetici del film non corrispondano ad una profondità narrativa adeguata.
