Master Director John Woo (A Better Tomorrow, Face/ Off) travelled to Thailand to make this fast-paced action classic. A group of mercenaries are sent into the so-called 'Golden Triangle' to capture a drug baron, but nabbing him is the easy bit. He's not going to go quietly: with both by gangsters and the army on the tail, this wild bunch is going to need all the help it can get...
No one has ever filmed gunplay as well as Woo and this was the first film that showed what he could do with a semi-automatic. Filmed with the same mastery of action that made Hard Target and A Bullet in the Head such classics, 88 Films are proud to present this blu-ray premiere of a seminal action classic.

No, we only ship inside the US
Most orders for in-stock items take less than 24 hours to ship (may take longer if you place an order over the weekend). Pre-orders are shipped as soon as the product arrives. International pre-orders may not come in before the street date. This is especially true with Australian pre-orders.
We only use USPS for all shipments. If there is an issue after your order ships you will need to contact your local post office.
All items that come with a slipcover will say so in the product page.
Pre-orders will not say WITH SLIPCOVER until the product comes in.
Slipcovers are not guaranteed to be in mint condition.
If you can order it, it's either in stock or a pre-order. If an item is out of stock you will not be able to add it to your cart. It's rare but our inventory may not be correct. So in some cases an item may have to be shipped separately.
We do not sell bootlegs. All product arrives from the distributor or is directly from the filmmakers. All items are new and sealed. Some indie titles or signed editions may not have shrinkwrap.
