Stranglehold

I just read that Midway Games has partnered with The Weinstein Company and Genius Products to create the first video game-movie hybrid Blu-ray Disc and it's a sequel to the John Woo classic Hard Boiled called Stranglehold.

The interactive Stranglehold has actor Chow Yun-Fat reprising his role as Inspector Tequila in an original plot that takes place 10 years after the events of the movie. The $70 disc will come with the full version of the game as well as a Blu-Ray version of Hard Boiled. Woo created the game’s story, directed the motion-capture action and oversaw the game’s development.

Interesting.

I really don't know how well that would work.

Probably not at all...still it's a very interesting concept.
