• Ashes Of Time

    Feb 18, 2015

    A tapestry of emotion, audaciously flashing backwards and forwards and shifting voice-overs to piece together the moments that have led the characters to the barren wastes of the desert.

  • C’est La Vie, Mon Cheri

    Feb 27, 2015

    These ingredients make ‘C’est La Vie, Mon Cheri’ a real treat to watch and create an enchanting ambience that draws the viewer in.

  • China White

    Feb 28, 2015

    ‘China White’ is not as accomplished as Yu’s later films and hasn’t dated the best either but still remains an entertaining thriller with some hard hitting action scenes.

  • Crazy Hong Kong

    Mar 3, 2015

    Despite some effective chemistry between N!xau and Lau Ching-Wan in some scenes, this is a strictly low-priority film.

  • Deadful Melody

    Mar 5, 2015

    If you like your early 90s wuxia flicks full of excessive theatrical action and characters then ‘Deadful Melody’ is a lot of fun.

  • Detective Dee And The Mystery Of The Phantom Flame

    Mar 7, 2015

    Impressive production values, an excellent cast and a few moments of genuine inspiration (courtesy of Sammo Hung’s action choreography) make the minutes fly be.

  • Forbidden City Cop

    Mar 14, 2015

    Avid fans of Chow Sing-Chi’s humour can also rest assured as this is one of his sharpest films.

  • From Vegas To Macau II

    Sep 17, 2016

    ‘From Vegas To Macau II’ gets very mild commendation for a few nods to past glories and the occasional joke that doesn’t feel like waterboarding.

  • From Vegas To Macau III

    Oct 5, 2016

    Packed with the deluge of banality and popular references that will doubtlessly age the film well before it’s time, this third part is every bit as frustrating and lazy as the one that came before it.

  • He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Father

    Mar 23, 2015

    Unfortunately not enough of the storyline’s potential is realised to be fully satisfying; such an intriguing plot needed a bit more attention to its effects instead of just skimming over the matter.

  • Heart To Hearts

    Mar 23, 2015

    With consistent pacing, a convincing story and an effortless mixture of comedy and romance, it is no wonder that ‘Heart To Hearts’ was successful enough to spawn two sequels and numerous imitators.

  • La Brassiere

    Apr 4, 2015

    A zippy, expertly performed romantic comedy with an abundance of style and quality, ‘La Brassiere’ is a pleasant surprise.

  • Let The Bullets Fly

    Apr 12, 2015

    Entertaining in parts with a game cast on good form but frustratingly uneven and unsatisfying a film as a whole, ‘Let the Bullets Fly’ lays on the political subtext but forgets to have fun with it.

  • Mighty Baby

    Apr 23, 2015

    If nothing else, this film goes to show how a lack of good material can sometimes be covered over by an excellent cast.

  • Naughty Boys

    May 3, 2015

    ‘Naughty Boys’ should only be viewed for one reason – the action. All other aspects of the film fall flat on their face.

  • Now You See Love… Now You Don’t

    May 4, 2015

    ‘Now You See Love… Now You Don’t’ is engrossing and eventually quite touching.

  • 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.

  • Rose, Rose I Love You

    May 19, 2015

    ‘Rose, Rose I Love You’ is less of a straight lampoon of 60s Hong Kong cinema and more of a genuine attempt to harness the spiritedness of the original.

  • 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.

  • She Shoots Straight

    May 24, 2015

    A simple and fast moving story about a tough female cops, is told with style, if not great direction, by Yuen Kwai.

  • The Eagle Shooting Heroes

    Mar 9, 2015

    ‘Carry on Wuxia’ it may be, but in execution and energy ‘The Eagle Shooting Heroes’ is the most polished in-joke ever made.

  • Young Detective Dee: Rise Of The Sea Dragon

    Jun 30, 2015

    ‘Young Detective Dee: Rise Of The Sea Dragon’ is involving fare with enough action and impetus to distract the most critical eye.
