Hard Boiled (1992)

This is a solid Chinese movie. Tequila (Chow Yun-Fat) is a cop determined to seek revenge against the gun smugglers who killed his partner in a tea house. He joins Alan, an undercover cop who has been trying to infiltrate the triad. Alan reluctantly shot a triad boss after a rival group invaded their arsenal. The rival gang keeps their own arsenal underneath a hospital and when the police learn of it, the criminals threaten to blow up the hospital and kill all of the patients.

There is a lot of gunfire in this film. Crane mythology is found in China, Korea, and Japan. Origami is Japanese for 'folding paper' and the art started in the 17th century. The director has a small role as a bartender in the Jazz bar.
