After years making Hollywood films and big budget Chinese epics like Red Cliff and the recent The Crossing, John Woo, the man behind action classics such as A Better Tomorrow, The Killer and Hard Boiled, has finally made a return to the genre that made him an internationally acclaimed director with Manhunt (read our review).

And now Manhunt is available on Blu-ray & DVD from our trusted online retailer, DDDHouse.

Manhunt is a remake of the 1976 Japanese classic action thriller (starring the late Ken Takakura), which tells story of a man who is accused of multiple crimes and trying desperately to clear his name.

The remake, which obviously follows the same theme, is about a prosecutor, played by award-winning Chinese actor Zhang Hanyu (The Taking of Tiger Mountain), who is framed for robbery, rape and multiple murders and sets out on a difficult solo mission to clear his name. Japanese heartthrob actor and singer Masaharu Fukuyama (Suspect X) plays the detective chasing Zhang’s character (via Variety). Ha Ji-Won (Sector 7) and newcomer Qi Wei also star.

Don’t wait for a U.S. release, pre-order Manhunt from DDDhouse today!

    C’mon, John, pick up the phone and do what you need to do.

    For the fans, huh?

  2. Richard Li says:

    I’ve looking all over the internet for an English subtitled version of the original 1976 Manhunt, does this exist? I’d be very grateful if you know one.

    i can’t wait to see ha ji won in action again

  4. CJ says:

    That footage looks pretty good. Quite a few Woo-isms in there, inclduing a dance number!

    I loved RED CLIFF but didn;t bother with THE CROSSING. Is it any good or is it as sappy and melodramatic as I suspect it is?

  5. Nic says:

    Man, I hope Woo is back in form for this. The last hour of Red Cliff was not worth the previous three, and I was so disengaged with The Crossing that I didn’t bother with Part II.

    • Z Ravas says:

      It was such a bummer that Red Cliff kinda ended on a bum note, because I thought Part One was excellent and engaging from start to finish.

    Slow motion check. Duel handgun welding check. Chase set on water check.
    Trailer looks sweet. I freaking love John Woo action films. High hopes for this, but where are the white doves?

  7. Naika says:

    Make it happen Mr. Woo!!!

  8. Asia Extreme says:

  9. Bolo says:

    Me watching The Killer again instead of this crap – check
