• 2000 AD

    Jul 3, 2015

    Although this movie was enjoyable from start to finish, it still lacked something to make it an above average thriller, while the few surprises in store make it unlikely to be viewed more than once.

  • And I Hate You So

    Feb 17, 2015

    ‘And I Hate You So’ could and should have been much better; instead the viewer is left with a good film that simply didn’t realise its full potential.

  • Anna Magdalena

    Feb 18, 2015

    Director Hai Chung Man combines the conventions of commercial film-making with the subtlety of art-house cinema, but never loses the main heart of the film.

  • China Strike Force

    Feb 28, 2015

    It’s worth watching, but will not go down as the best film that Hong Kong has produced in recent years – far from it in fact.

  • 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.

  • Cold War

    Mar 1, 2015

    ‘Cold War’ is consistently entertaining and its massive success at the Hong Kong box-office shows that it clearly struck a chord with local audiences.

  • Cold War II

    Sep 24, 2016

    Like the first film, it is a slick and intense thriller that boasts solid performances from its cast.

  • Future Cops

    Mar 16, 2015

    ‘Future Cops’ is definitely worth a look for its crazy action and glittering cast, but be warned that the middle section may make you reach for the fast-forward button.

  • Heat Team

    Mar 23, 2015

    ‘Heat Team’ will undoubtedly baffle more than it will appease; the fractured style and severe lack of focus on what the film actually wants to achieve is difficult to forgive.

  • Kung Fu Scholar

    Apr 4, 2015

    There’s little to recommend this uncomfortable kung fu comedy so don’t be in any hurry to watch it.

  • Love In Space

    Apr 15, 2015

    ‘Love In Space’ doesn’t quite perform with the same surprising wit of ‘Hot Summer Days’, but is remarkably successful given the elements of deja-vu that pop up throughout.

  • Saviour Of The Soul

    May 21, 2015

    With a startling visual style and innovative action aplenty, ‘Saviour Of The Soul’ ranks among the very best of the Hong Kong fantasy genre.

  • The Bare-Footed Kid

    Feb 20, 2015

    The film stands out as one of the hidden gems of the 90’s new-wave kung fu movement and provides superb entertainment for even the most discerning viewer.

  • The Storm Riders

    Jun 1, 2015

    ‘The Storm Riders’ is a film that all Hong Kong film fans will want to watch for its reputation. Whether or not it’ll stay in the viewer’s mind much longer after the final credits role is a different matter.

  • The Storm Warriors

    Jun 1, 2015

    As the style inevitably overpowers the substance, the facade of a plot begins to break apart and the husk of a film is left.

  • Throw Down

    Jun 11, 2015

    It may be To’s intention to slightly alienate the audience with characters stuck in limbo, without any explanations, but, if this is the case, he cannot be too surprised to learn that this is an uninvolving film.

  • Truant Hero

    Jun 16, 2015

    There is actually some entertainment to be derived from ‘Truant Hero’ and it exists on its own strengths rather than being completely reliant on its influences.

  • Whatever Will Be, Will Be

    Jun 26, 2015

    ‘Whatever Will Be, Will Be’ is an unusual film to recommend as it is so anchored to convention that it initially seems to have little to differentiate it from the many other similarly themed films.
