• 14 Blades

    Jul 2, 2015

    It has numerous nods to the Shaw Brothers classics and harks back to those swordplay flicks of yesteryear, making you smile, cry, jump for joy and shout like a banshee, like any good martial arts film should.

  • Blood: The Last Vampire

    Feb 24, 2015

    Much of the story could have been padded better, with the format really revolving around getting to the next action sequence when more depth to the characters would have been far more beneficial.

  • Bodyguards And Assassins

    Feb 25, 2015

    Overall it’s a wonderful film, a blockbuster people call it, and maybe it is, but really for us Asian movie fans this is what it’s all about – a hard hitting, hard punching film with a heart of gold and a fist of iron.

  • Ip Man

    Mar 30, 2015

    If you’re an action fan you won’t be disappointed and for me, this is Donnie Yen’s best film to date from an acting perspective.

  • Legend Of The Fist: The Return Of Chen Zhen

    Apr 6, 2015

    ‘Legend Of The Fist’ is a film that promises so much but delivers far less, especially considering this is a collaboration between Donnie Yen and Andrew Lau.

  • 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.

  • Little Big Soldier

    Apr 13, 2015

    It’s definitely still a Chan movie through and through though, and as bizarre as it sounds, it does give you a slapstick yet emotional tour de force with a cutting edge.

  • Ong Bak 2

    May 9, 2015

    I’d say if you love your action then you won’t be disappointed but I still can’t shake the feeling that if Tony hadn’t left the set half way through, things might have been even better.

  • Shamo

    May 22, 2015

    It’s gonna be a love it or loathe it kind of movie as it’s not the dark, vicious film I expected, although there are some disturbing scenes thrown in there.

  • Shinjuku Incident

    May 24, 2015

    There’s some very powerful visual displays of violence that pepper the film throughout, showing us that if you turn to the dark side you really will become slave to its master.

  • The Treasure Hunter

    Jun 16, 2015

    The set pieces in general are nice, while the cinematography and the musical score do stand out but again, as a whole the film just doesn’t do what it says on the tin.

  • True Legend

    Jun 17, 2015

    Action fans in particular will find much to appreciate here, especially the chance to see the Drunken style so excellently represented on screen.

  • Vengeance

    Jun 20, 2015

    If you love the gunplay genre then you’ll love ‘Vengeance’ as it’s amazing to look at, but the story does take a backseat so that the action can be given centre stage.
