John Woo

Biography

Filmography

Chinese director, born in 1946 in Canton.

John Woo grew up in Hong Kong and started out as a production assistant at the famous Shaw Brothers studios, before directing his first feature film, The Young Dragons (1974). Influenced by the ancient Chinese values of chivalry, he directed several martial arts films, including Hand of Death with Jackie Chan. In 1983, he had a landmark meeting with director Tsui Hark, who produced his box-office sensation, the A Better Tomorrow trilogy. He later directed The Killer (1989) and Bullet in the Head (1990), which earned him international fame and the admiration of Tarantino and Coppola. Moving to Los Angeles, he produced his first American film, Hard Target, in 1993. The thriller Face/Off (1997) starring John Travolta and Nicolas Cage and Mission Impossible 2 (2000) were to follow. John Woo has since alternated between Chinese and American productions. His most recent film, Manhunt, was released in Asia in 2017.
