• A Man Called Hero

    Apr 20, 2015

    Andrew Lau has a very obvious formula for making comic book adaptations and it’s one that is ultimately not very satisfying.

  • A Simple Life

    May 26, 2015

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

  • A-1

    Feb 15, 2004

    There are moments of entertainment here, but the flat denouement sums up the lack of real polish that the preceding 100 minutes had provided.

  • All About Love

    Feb 16, 2015

    When the main story takes centre stage, the viewer’s interest is likely to be lost and the plot-holes difficult to reconcile.

  • 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.

  • Fight Back To School 3

    Mar 12, 2015

    ‘Fight Back To School 3’ is a sad dip in quality for the series, with Jing reducing the all-important comedy routines to the lowest common denominator.

  • Fist Power

    Mar 13, 2015

    ‘Fist Power’ is a very thin framework onto which a few interesting action scenes are hung and should not be treated as a classic of the genre.
