• Bad Blood

    Feb 20, 2015

    At times, the film will have you slipping into a catatonic state and you’ll just be praying for the next bit of action to come along.

  • City Under Siege

    Mar 1, 2015

    ‘City Under Siege’ plods along to something of an anti-climax after nearly two hours, never achieving logical pacing or suspense.

  • Connected

    Mar 2, 2015

    ‘Connected’ is outrageously entertaining and maintains its energetic momentum throughout.

  • Double Trouble

    Mar 8, 2015

    By all means watch the occasionally jaunty ‘Double Trouble’, but don’t move anything slightly necessary out of your schedule to accommodate it.

  • Fatal Contact

    Mar 11, 2015

    Like most martial arts movies to emerge out of Hong Kong in recent years, there are flashes of the talent involved but it’s not nearly as entertaining as it should have been.

  • Fatal Move

    Mar 11, 2015

    ‘Fatal Move’ is most certainly flawed and could have been a lot tighter and less meandering. Yet it still manages to be an entertaining slice of gangster action that entertains if never really ignites.

  • Final Romance

    Mar 13, 2015

    Mak paces the narrative in a very delicate way, choosing to build the romance between his leads rather than just rely on ‘big scenes’ to do the work for him.

  • From Vegas To Macau

    Mar 15, 2015

    It’s best viewed as an occasionally enjoyable diversion that, on sporadic occasions, hints at how good a reboot of one of the 80s most iconic film series could be.

  • Gen-Y Cops

    Mar 16, 2015

    For all the plot holes and script deficiencies, this is an excellent slice of Hong Kong entertainment with a return to the edict of fun film-making that made the 80’s stand out.

  • Himalaya Singh

    Mar 25, 2015

    ‘Himalaya Singh’ is a depressing fusion of noise and colour that Hong Kong cinema can ill-afford to keep churning out.

  • Invisible Target

    Mar 30, 2015

    Hard hitting action reminiscent of old school Hong Kong actioners, solid performances and sleek direction makes ‘Invisible Target’ one of the years best action flicks.

  • Ip Man: The Final Fight

    Mar 30, 2015

    Herman Yau’s conclusion to the story deserves its place among its contemporaries. And any film with Anthony Wong giving his all is well worth adding to your collection.

  • Lady Cop & Papa Crook

    Apr 5, 2015

    Interest is created in ‘Lady Cop & Papa Crook’ by its style and verve, yet the story and characters are successful in doing the opposite.

  • Legendary Assassin

    Apr 11, 2015

    Not a complete disaster but by no means the showcase that Wu Jing was no doubt hoping it would be.

  • Let The Bullets Fly

    Apr 12, 2015

    Entertaining in parts with a game cast on good form but frustratingly uneven and unsatisfying a film as a whole, ‘Let the Bullets Fly’ lays on the political subtext but forgets to have fun with it.

  • Looking For Mister Perfect

    Apr 13, 2015

    ‘Looking For Mister Perfect’ is the kind of light and fluffy film that one would associate with Wong Jing or Joe Ma and not the man responsible for savage hits like ‘City On Fire’ and ‘Full Contact’.

  • New Police Story

    May 4, 2015

    The performances from all parties are excellent, and Jackie has reinstalled a little faith in me that he is still capable of making a good action movie.

  • Rob-B-Hood

    May 18, 2015

    Despite some wonderful Jackie moments it proves to be a movie where the need to be ‘cute’ is more important than the desire to entertain.

  • Run Papa Run

    May 19, 2015

    ‘Run Papa Run’ is a story we may have seen before with style that may initially be jarring, yet is ultimately delivered with aplomb.

  • Shanghai Knights

    May 22, 2015

    After my thoughts that he might well be resigned to uninspiring Hollywood fodder, I’m glad to eat humble pie and say that ‘Shanghai Knights’ contains some of his best action in recent years.

  • Shanghai Noon

    May 23, 2015

    ‘Shanghai Noon’ is not as action packed or original as some of Chan’s early efforts, but it is still one of his best American outings to date.

  • Shaolin

    May 23, 2015

    The dramatic framework is sturdy enough to make ‘Shaolin’ emotionally engaging, while the Yuen Kwai-orchestrated action is a delightful throwback to the Golden Age.

  • Speed Angels

    Jun 1, 2015

    Much of the problem with ‘Speed Angels’ is its apparent contentment with clichés and a dogged determination to be utterly mundane.

  • SPL 2: A Time For Consequences

    Jan 12, 2017

    Sticking with ‘SPL 2’ makes for an overall rewarding experience as director Soi Cheang takes the viewer on a wild, thrilling and at times incredibly dark ride.
