We came away from E3 more impressed with John Woo Presents Stranglehold than we expected to be. This fresh trailer (just click the Movies tab above) should give you a pretty good indication as to why we were so giddy.
An interactive sequel to John Woo's classic action film Hard Boiled, Stranglehold picks up the story of Inspector Tequila; Chow-Yun Fat reprises his role as the twin-pistol firing, banister-running, chandelier-swinging cop declaring war on the criminal underworld. Woo's moves have been ripped off... er, lovingly borrowed by games for several years now, so Stranglehold gives the director (and his interactive studio, Tiger Hill Games) the chance to deliver the goods directly. Stranglehold is due out later this year for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
