  • A Better Tomorrow

    Feb 23, 2015

    This is the ‘Citizen Kane’ of HK heroic bloodshed films and it never ages, even after repeat viewings.

  • A Better Tomorrow II

    Feb 23, 2015

    What this film lacks in plot, it sure as hell makes up for in action and the finale of ‘A Better Tomorrow II’ is a brutal display of guns, grenades and swordplay.

  • A Better Tomorrow III

    Feb 23, 2015

    As a standalone film ‘A Better Tomorrow 3’ is a fairly watchable effort thanks to an intriguing premise, but as a prequel to ‘A Better Tomorrow’ it just doesn’t quite cut it.

  • A Chinese Odyssey Part 1: Pandora’s Box

    Feb 28, 2015

    Great all-round entertainment that shows Stephen Chow and the Monkey King myth at their finest.

  • A Chinese Odyssey Part 2: Cinderella

    May 3, 2015

    If you enjoyed the first ‘A Chinese Odyssey’, then this second part is pretty much guaranteed to please.

  • A Chinese Tall Story

    Feb 28, 2015

    Lau’s modern interpretation is an extremely wild one that is often mind blowing in its visuals, but in truth it’s the heart warming love story that prevails and makes the film a very entertaining one.

  • A Fighter’s Blues

    Mar 12, 2015

    Perhaps if the story were more involving or it contained better action, it might have been more appealing. As it stands though, it’s really only going to serve as a quick fix for hardcore Andy Lau fans.

  • A Man Called Hero

    Apr 20, 2015

    Andrew Lau has a very obvious formula for making comic book adaptations and it’s one that is ultimately not very satisfying.

  • A Taste Of Killing And Romance

    Jun 9, 2015

    ‘A Taste Of Killing And Romance’ may do enough to pass the time if you’re a fan of any of the actors involved but it’s certainly far from anyone’s finest work.

  • Alien Vs. Ninja

    Feb 16, 2015

    For a change, ‘Alien Vs. Ninja’ is an amusingly titled, low budget action movie that actually lives up to expectations.

  • All For The Winner

    Feb 17, 2015

    ‘All For The Winner’ is a fun all-round movie with a particularly pleasing performance from Stephen Chow.

    Jan 20, 2017

    Mixed martial arts star, Anderson Silva (aka The Spider) has become an unlikely addition to the cast of director Fruit Chan’s new action thriller ‘Made in Kowloon’.

  • Android Cop

    Mar 16, 2015

    Perhaps movie fans will have fun trying to spot the influences, but beyond this it’s hard to see why it would be worthy of your time.

  • Angry Ranger

    Feb 17, 2015

    While it is far from being a bad film, ‘Angry Ranger’ is just too average and uninspiring to be worthy of all the acclaim it has garnered.

  • Arena Of The Street Fighter

    Feb 18, 2015

    The limited plot makes it impossible to get involved with any of the characters and the sheer volume of fight scenes quickly forces them to become tiresome.

  • Arrietty

    Feb 18, 2015

    An easy recommendation as it’s still a fun-filled family adventure that is suitably heart-warming and easy on the eye.

  • Assault Girls

    Feb 18, 2015

    Even though Oshii has an impressive eye for visuals, he really needs to invest more time into the overall package as this is sadly lacking in depth.
