Today is another one of my very tenuous links. On this day in 1862 Samuel Colt, the inventor of the modern revolver, died aged 47 and so to celebrate I have picked a movie with one of the highest body counts in film history! Hard Boiled is directed by John Woo (who also directed Face/Off which was a pick earlier in the week), stars Chow Yun Fat and Tony Leung and has a onscreen body count of 307! What more reason could you need, action fans?
The film sees Fat and Leung take down a small army of gangsters and the trailer can be seen below (WARNING: Trailer contains a lot of people getting shot. And not much else)
