- the Trade union of the crime , 1986;
- The Killer , 1989, interfering western and film Chinese knighthood, revolutionizing action film;
- a Ball in the Head , 1990, its richest work thématiquement, which tells the descent into Hell of three Chinese friends in full war of Vietnam;

It exploits recurrent themes such as symmetry between the beings (all its films), the infiltration in the Maffia , the friendship and the direction of the honor. Its films, often violent ones, always deliver a positive message. The film synthesizing best these aspects is undoubtedly Volte face , since the enemies exchange their faces, with in particular the scene of the mirror with double face: each one looks at its own reflection and although looking at oneself, its enemy sees.
When it produced in HongKong, it did not hesitate to put in scene slaughters touching child and patients blindly; since it is in Hollywood, it Autocensure on these points. It uses - and, for some, abuse - “Mexican caster” (the characters point one and the other with a weapon, still a symbol of symmetry) and systematic appearance of doves in each one of its films.
Il revolutionized the cinema of action states-unien and imposed its style, and generally the style of HongKong, with “tricks” like the simultaneous behavior of two guns, or the fact of holding an inclined gun, which one now finds in all action films of Matrix with the Fifth Element while passing by Usual Suspects .
It also carried out two telefilms ( repented the in 1996 and Blackjack in 1998) and a publicity for Nike. Lastly, he was actor with some recoveries and appears in several of his films for a small role or as an appear.
