• 13 Assassins

    Jul 2, 2015

    A grand tale of men banding together to fight an unrelenting evil, content to die if they can free their land from the marauding tyrant and his gargantuan army.

  • 13: Game Of Death

    Jul 2, 2015

    Starting off as a black comedy, things soon turn more sinister, and gory, in this inventive and must see slice of Thai cinema.

  • 1911

    Jul 2, 2015

    Yet another good looking Chinese epic that tries to cram way too much historical happenings into a somewhat brief running time but is still an okay stab by Chan to tackle “serious” filmmaking once again.

  • 252: Signal Of Life

    Jul 3, 2015

    This Japanese blockbuster is like a head on collision between a big budget disaster flick and a Lifetime/Hallmark/True Movies film of the week.

  • 4bia

    Anthology horror gets the Thai treatment in this nifty, four story feature from some of Thailand’s top filmmakers.

  • 71: Into The Fire

    Sep 17, 2016

    This slick looking and battle charged war film doesn’t stray too far from the well worn war movie path but certainly tells an inspiring and conflict heavy tale from the Korean War.

  • A Bittersweet Life

    Feb 23, 2015

    A true gangster epic with brilliant performances, direction and action and not a mockney geezer or wideboy in sight. Simply: great.

  • Aftershock

    Feb 16, 2015

    A well made drama that follows the lives of a small group of characters after an horrific event, ‘Aftershock’ may disappoint those looking for the regular disaster movie tropes but those in the mood for a rewarding character piece should check it out.

  • Arahan

    Feb 18, 2015

    The story is nothing new or revolutionary and takes just a little too long to get where it is going. Still, the film is made with skill and the comedy often hits home just as much as the fights do.

  • Armageddon

    Feb 18, 2015

    The lack of urgency and often confusing nature of the plot means ‘Armageddon’ is never as engaging or exciting as it could have been.

  • Assassin Rising

    Feb 18, 2015

    Not quite as bad as the above descriptions might make it sound but far too barmy, slapdash and low rent to be fully successful with its intentions.

  • Assembly

    Feb 18, 2015

    A personal story told on a grand scale ‘Assembly’ is as good as war flicks get, finding a near perfect balance between a personal journey and large scale combat.

  • Axis Of War: My Long March

    Feb 19, 2015

    Only recommended to war completists and those who find overt sentimentality and propaganda pushing easier to swallow.

  • Axis Of War: Night Raid

    Feb 19, 2015

    Despite the odd dip into cheesiness, lethargic storytelling and over earnestness, ‘Night Raid’ is still an enjoyable slice of war action with an intriguing story and some likeable characters at its core.

  • Axis Of War: The First Of August

    Jun 9, 2015

    This is only for the war history (and propaganda/sentimentality pushing) completist out there. Those wanting a war combat fix best look elsewhere.

  • Azumi 2: Death Or Love

    Feb 19, 2015

    A worthy follow up to Kitamura’s stylish original and certainly packs a punch in the Samurai action department.

  • Bangkok Dangerous

    Feb 20, 2015

    This lacklustre and also very sluggish remake, comes from Nicholas Cage and the Pang Brothers once again and offers nothing new to say and pretty much suffers from the same problems as the original.
