Nah. I love CYF! I've seen his Hong Kong movies, and while they are better action movies, they look like 4 guys and a VHS camera with lots of craptacular sound effects. Also, the subtitles make me believe the dialogue was written by mental patients (maybe something was lost in the translation).
I'm not such a Woo purist to say that only his HK movies are good. I loved Face-Off, for instance.
Everythin about Replacement Killers is so spot on and tightly made that it's really a fine spectacle of film making. It's no Apocolypse now, but it is really good for what it is; a balls to the wall action movies.
And I'll admit: The leading actors pretty much sum up everything for me. To steal and warp a classic line: I want to be him (CYF), and I want to do her (Mira S.).
The second most underrated movie of all time, btw is <a href="http://www.andrew.cmu.edu/user/mpreston/spies08.wav
