Tarantino's action style was BASED on John Woo, and it still doesn't hold a candle to a John Woo original thriller.
Beyond the action though I'm very satisfied with the straightforward plot which, because it's a Hong Kong action movie, OBVIOUSLY involves triads (as per Rule #1 of The Official Rules of Hong Kong Action Movies), however it manages to keep it simple, straightforward, and grounded towards our hero.
It is the epitome of excesses of Woo and action films in general.
