• Drunken Master II

    Mar 9, 2015

    This is truly a masterpiece of the genre with Chan, who was approaching his 40th birthday at the time, on astounding form.

  • Fast Fingers

    Mar 11, 2015

    While ‘Fast Fingers’ may be seen as a combination of kung-fu and comedy, it is more memorable for being an amalgam of the sublime and the ridiculous.

  • First Strike

    Mar 13, 2015

    Vitally, ‘First Strike’ is still full of the energy and invention that leaves so many other action films pale in comparison.

  • Happy Ding Dong

    Mar 22, 2015

    It’s somewhat disappointing to see a comedian of Michael Hui’s pedigree reverting to, what is essentially, a reworking of the classic Jack Lemmon/Tony Curtis/Marilyn Monroe comedy ‘Some Like It Hot’.

  • How To Choose A Royal Bride

    Mar 26, 2015

    Some may not like ‘How To Choose A Royal Bride’ because of the episodic nature of the story but this is some fun if rather slight entertainment.

  • I Love Lolanto

    Feb 10, 2018

    Something of a minor undiscovered gem, it’s not hard to see why ‘I Love Lolanto’ was a box office hit in its day and remains well worth seeking out as a latter-day diversion.

  • Look Out, Officer!

    Apr 13, 2015

    ‘Look Out, Officer!’ provides no real surprises but it is a solid slice of light-hearted comedy that makes the most out of its impressive cast.

  • Miracles

    Apr 24, 2015

    Jackie openly admits that this film was intended to answer the critics who saw him as just an action star/director. What an answer it proved to be!

  • Police Story

    May 12, 2015

    ‘Police Story’ is one of the finest examples of 80’s Hong Kong cinema, with so many amazing elements that make it a joy to behold.

  • Police Story 2

    May 12, 2015

    Despite its finale, ‘Police Story 2’ is worthy edition to any JC collection, and another example of how Hollywood action is made to look pathetic in comparison.

  • Police Story 3: Supercop

    May 12, 2015

    This is another great slice of entertainment JC style, and was one of his best performances before his physical shape noticeably began to deteriorate in the mid-90’s.

  • Project A Part II

    May 16, 2015

    It was impossible to match the original classic, but Chan pulled out all of the stops to make sure he gave it his best.
