• Bad Blood

    Feb 20, 2015

    At times, the film will have you slipping into a catatonic state and you’ll just be praying for the next bit of action to come along.

  • Black Mask 2: City Of Masks

    Feb 23, 2015

    ‘Black Mask 2’ could be seen as Hark’s interpretation of what appeals to a global audience or maybe he just watched one too many episodes of ‘Power Rangers’ before production began.

  • 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.

  • Dragon Squad

    Mar 9, 2015

    Even though it is littered with flaws, I feel I can’t give ‘Dragon Squad’ the complete thumbs down as it is one of those films that could easily pass for a guilty pleasure.

  • Fatal Contact

    Mar 11, 2015

    Like most martial arts movies to emerge out of Hong Kong in recent years, there are flashes of the talent involved but it’s not nearly as entertaining as it should have been.

  • Invisible Target

    Mar 30, 2015

    Hard hitting action reminiscent of old school Hong Kong actioners, solid performances and sleek direction makes ‘Invisible Target’ one of the years best action flicks.

  • Looking For Mister Perfect

    Apr 13, 2015

    ‘Looking For Mister Perfect’ is the kind of light and fluffy film that one would associate with Wong Jing or Joe Ma and not the man responsible for savage hits like ‘City On Fire’ and ‘Full Contact’.

  • Mad Detective

    Apr 18, 2015

    If you like your cop thrillers but want something just a little different then ‘Mad Detective’ has got both bases covered.

  • New Police Story

    May 4, 2015

    The performances from all parties are excellent, and Jackie has reinstalled a little faith in me that he is still capable of making a good action movie.

  • Once Upon A Time In Shanghai

    May 7, 2015

    The master stroke is of course the incorporation of Yuen Woo Ping as fight choreographer and he serves up some of the best fisticuffs of recent years.

  • Outcast

    Feb 24, 2017

    Often exciting, action packed and reminiscent of something one would happily rent during the 90s heyday of never-ending-video-store-action-film-releases.

  • Special ID

    Jun 1, 2015

    After a surge of period and fantasy styled films, Donnie Yen returns to modern day cop action territory in the somewhat schlocky but no less entertaining ‘Special ID’.

  • Star Runner

    Jun 1, 2015

    This leans more towards the quick-cut close ups of more recent Hollywood efforts. Most of the fights are also glossed over as short “highlights” rather than letting us see the full action.

  • The Lost Bladesman

    Apr 14, 2015

    Eschewing any flashiness for a more old school and care given to character and pacing approach, Chong and Mak craft a beautifully shot and finely acted period piece.

  • The Viral Factor

    Jun 22, 2015

    Lam certainly throws a lot in and the tone does vary but thanks to the confident staging and the unrelenting momentum it all works for the most part.

  • Three Kingdoms: Resurrection Of The Dragon

    Jun 11, 2015

    ‘Three Kingdoms: Resurrection Of The Dragon’ is a mixture of well shot conflict, stirring heroism and flawed drama.

  • True Legend

    Jun 17, 2015

    Action fans in particular will find much to appreciate here, especially the chance to see the Drunken style so excellently represented on screen.

  • White Vengeance

    Jun 26, 2015

    ‘White Vengeance’ – in keeping with the generic expectations of recent years – has big, bruising conflict aplenty and it’s those moments that tend to have the greatest impact.
