John Woo was born in China and has an estimated net worth of $60 million dollars. A director, producer, writer, and editor, John Woo is most widely recognized for his brand of "operatic" action films. His films, which have been produced in both Hong Kong and the US, have been hugely popular, and include such hits as, "A Better Tomorrow", "Hard Boiled", "Face/Off", and "Mission Impossible 2".
John Woo Yu-Sen SBS (born 1 May 1946) is a Hong Kong film director, writer, and producer.

The family was rendered homeless by the big Shek Kip Mei fire of 1953. Charitable donations from disaster relief efforts enabled the family to relocate; however, violent crime had by then become commonplace in Hong Kong housing projects.
At age three he was diagnosed with a serious medical condition. Following surgery on his spine, he was unable to walk correctly until eight years old, and as a result his right leg is shorter than his left leg. Woo went to Concordia Lutheran School and received a Christian education[citation needed] (his Christian background shows influences in his films).
