why doesn't john woo make a movie about 228? now that is a big event in taiwan and much more recent,where the chinese came and killed doctors, lawyers, teachers, any intellects. my grandpa was a teacher, watched his friend die in a classroom in front of kids. real taiwanese prefer japanese to chinese any day!!!don't know what john woo is thinking
