• Disciples Of Shaolin

    Mar 7, 2015

    The film has stood the test of time in terms of fight action, performances and direction, all of which are exceptional.

  • Five Shaolin Masters

    Mar 13, 2015

    With ‘Five Shaolin Masters’, there is a definite impression that the great director’s inspirational ideas of brotherhood and honour are somehow diluted.

  • Heaven And Hell

    Oct 4, 2017

    ‘Heaven and Hell’ is actually a whole lot more interesting, and engaging, than one would outwardly expect from its (largely) negative reputation.

  • Heroes Shed No Tears

    Mar 24, 2015

    ‘Heroes Shed No Tears’ is the kind of complex swordplay film that was attempted after the demise of the Shaw Brothers movie making empire, but often lacked the skilled control that Chor Yuen offered.

  • Heroes Two

    Mar 24, 2015

    ‘Heroes Two’ is not one of the definitive collaborations between Chang Cheh and Fu Sheng, but it offers quality in most departments.

  • Hong Kong Playboys

    Mar 25, 2015

    This is not a comic masterpiece and doesn’t amuse in quite the manner that it imagines it does, but with a leading man of Fu Sheng’s calibre this is almost to be forgiven.

  • Legendary Weapons Of China

    Apr 11, 2015

    ‘Legendary Weapons of China’ loses impetus when it concentrates on the distracting sub-plot involving Fu Sheng’s kung-fu charlatan, but it is still a refined entry in the genre.

  • Magnificent Wanderers

    Apr 19, 2015

    There are quite a few spurts of fight action, but these are in-keeping with the playful tone of the film and offer little spectacular.

  • Men From The Monastery

    Apr 22, 2015

    Chang Cheh delivers a multi-layered kung-fu drama that is ripe with excellent characterisation and well-choreographed action.

  • My Rebellious Son

    May 3, 2015

    With a studio-bound feel that ages it beyond its years and an ambling storyline that sees the useful sub-plots cast aside, ‘My Rebellious Son’ rarely shines.

  • New Shaolin Boxers

    May 4, 2015

    A splendid, fight packed romp that is a must for any fan of Fu Sheng. In fact it’s probably a must for any fan of kung fu films.

  • Return Of The Sentimental Swordsman

    May 17, 2015

    There’s therefore much to recommend this superior sequel, a film that takes the best elements of the original and invites viewers to contemplate a message beyond the common expectations of the genre.
