Unfortunately, Tsui Hark's first foray into Hollywood hasn't been very good. Like John Woo (a former business partner of his), Hark was called to direct a Jean-Claude Van Damme movie several years ago. The movie turned out to be "Double Team" which co-starred Dennis Rodman and Mickey Rourke. The movie was, to put it mildly, awful. For some strange reason, Hark decided to do another Van Damme movie which resulted in "Knock Off" being filmed. And to be as diplomatic as possible about that movie, it was worse than the previous one. After that, Hark went back to Hong Kong and resumed his production and directing duties there. By the way, in case you were wondering about why Woo and Hark never work together anymore, it's a well-known secret that they battled over the production of Woo's masterpiece "The Killer". Hark appparently hated the film, thought it was a waste of time, and made Woo's life miserable during the filming of it. When the movie ended up a box office and critical success, Hark switched faces and attempted to get as much glory for the film as he could, even though his contribution to it was very minimal.
