Whether or not a game can actually be a sequel to a movie, the game Stranglehold is being billed as the sequel to Hard Boiled – and agree or not on the sequel aspect – everyone seems to agree that this is an exceptional game which does in fact live up to the hype, as well as having the names John Woo, Chow Yun-Fat and Hard Boiled attached to it.

The images are grabbed from the game’s official site where you can see images, play trailers, as well as demo the game created by Midway.

Here’s a clip from a review down at sfgate.com:

Stranglehold has been billed as the sequel to John Woo’s movie “Hard Boiled,” casting Chow Yun-Fat (or, rather, his likeness and voice work) as Tequila Yuen, the “hot-handed god of cops” who has a talent for stylishly shooting his way out of – and into – bad situations. There’s not much of a plot to work with here, but the game absolutely nails how it feels to have Chow walk into a room and destroy it with bullets.

Here’s another clip form a review down at signonsandiego.com:

Director John Woo and actor Chow Yun-Fat team up once again for what could be the most intense and stylish action game of the holiday, “Stranglehold.” As the official sequel to their popular movie collaboration, “Hard Boiled,” the game mirrors the awesome “gun ballet” sequences that made the movie such a hit.
