    What may sound like an unpleasant crime thriller because of the concept and title is actually another of the comedy films that Chow Yun-Fat made earlier in his career.

  • 1911

    Jul 2, 2015

    One of the better mainland films of recent years and probably the best of the ones that focus on the revolution.

  • 2 Become 1

    Jul 2, 2015

    Full of negative characterisation, sloppily handled sentiment and rudderless direction, this is a film that drags along like the walking dead and manages to smother its noble intentions with complete indecision.

  • 200 Pounds Beauty

    Jul 3, 2015

    A typically operatic Korean rom-com where subtlety is elbowed aside in favour of ‘My Sassy Girl’ style emotional fireworks.

  • 72 Heroes

    Jul 19, 2015

    While Derek Chiu’s latest film is an acceptable blockbuster, the wit and style of the director’s earlier works is sadly fading away from him.

  • 72 Tenants Of Prosperity

    Jul 19, 2015

    With a welcome big screen appearance by Anita Yuen and an all-star rendition of Sam Hui’s beloved ’Private Eyes’ theme, this celebration of Hong Kong is an unpretentious distraction.

  • 92 Legendary La Rose Noire

    Jul 19, 2015

    If any viewer has been brought up on the Hong Kong musicals that Jeff Lau’s work alludes to, this will be highly recommended.

  • 97 Aces Go Places

    Jul 19, 2015

    Even though I was eager to like the film and the trailer helped make this seem a possibility, this is a major disappointment – even for the most forgiving fans of the Samuel Hui/Karl Maka classic.

  • A Battle Of Wits

    Feb 21, 2015

    ‘A Battle Of Wits’ is that rare work that is exciting, tense and yet is an introspective on the violence, war and conformity.

    Feb 22, 2015

    Shi Runjiu’s film is a modest production with flaws in certain key areas, but remains a genuinely interesting film.

    Feb 25, 2015

    Anyone who has seen everything that Jackie, Sammo and Yuen have offered could do a lot worse than endure Chu Yen Ping’s messy action comedy.

    Mar 1, 2015

    A portrait of quiet hope and self-worth painted with the delicate strokes the director so often uses.

  • A Fistful Of Talons

    Mar 13, 2015

    Perhaps Billy Chong’s most polished and constantly entertaining film, ‘A Fistful Of Talons’ takes a well-used storyline and turns it into something much more original.

    A crackerjack Korean comedy that features a wonderful double act by Lee Sun-Kyun and Cho Jin-Woong as the oddball antagonists.

    For anyone who wants a blast of what exceptional imaginations used to do with minor budgets, ‘A Heroic Fight’ will refresh more than it will befuddle.

  • A Kid From Tibet

    Apr 3, 2015

    Without a doubt, ‘A Kid From Tibet’ is a hugely enjoyable action comedy that is the perfect showcase for the multi-talented Yuen Biao.

  • A Millionaire’s First Love

    Apr 23, 2015

    As it draws to it conclusion, that Korean melancholy kicks in and the characters begin to extend beyond caricatures.

  • A Perfect Match

    May 11, 2015

    Despite moments that show a director trying to craft something different from a common storyline, there is no reason why this should be considered unfair; this is mostly well executed yet only mildly diverting fare.

  • A Roof With A View

    May 19, 2015

    The pace flags slightly near the end with a final section that is needlessly padded out, but there’s much to absorb in Tony Au’s work.

    May 26, 2015

    ‘A Simple Life’ is the perfect marriage of arthouse style and heart-rending substance.

  • A Terracotta Warrior
