• Aces Go Places

    Feb 16, 2015

    Unlike much of today’s canto-comedy, the humour in ‘Aces.’ translates very well and certainly doesn’t seem to have dated after nearly twenty-years.

  • Have Sword, Will Travel

    Mar 23, 2015

    Fine performances, good cinematography and a well-paced storyline – despite the difficulty on my part to pick out its failings – will offer most viewers a rewarding 100 minutes of entertainment.

  • Iron Fisted Monk

    Mar 30, 2015

    Any Sammo Hung fan would love this film, as would anyone who enjoys old-school martial arts flicks.

  • Kung Fu Of Eight Drunkards

    Apr 4, 2015

    ‘Kung Fu of Eight Drunkards’ is interchangeable with most of the other independent productions of the time, the same strengths and weaknesses again apparent.

  • Monkey Fist, Floating Snake

    Apr 27, 2015

    This is a film that begins with optimism only to quickly revert to the old formula that had been so over-used.

  • Once Upon A Time In Triad Society

    May 7, 2015

    ‘Once Upon A Time In Triad Society’ is a great little movie, purely down to Francis Ng in what must be one of his greatest roles.

  • Plain Jane To The Rescue

    May 11, 2015

    Episodic like a Hui Brothers film but without the sharp humour, ‘Plain Jane To The Rescue’ is an enjoyable diversion though it may test the patience of some fans.

  • Security Unlimited

    May 22, 2015

    Far more subtle than Chow Sing Chi, but certainly as funny, ‘Security Unlimited’ is an excellent introduction to the world of the Hui brothers.

  • The Anonymous Heroes

    Feb 18, 2015

    ‘The Anonymous Heroes’ is the kind of spectacular romp that has an infectious sense of enjoyment pouring off the screen.

  • The Chinese Boxer

    Feb 28, 2015

    Although dated, ‘The Chinese Boxer’ is historically fascinating and provides an interesting point of reference to the many films that would follow.

  • The Heroic Ones

    Mar 24, 2015

    Chang Cheh’s ‘The Heroic Ones’ is an ambitious and sumptuous martial arts epic that set a benchmark for Shaw Brothers at its time of release.

  • The Legend Of The Owl

    Apr 6, 2015

    ‘The Legend Of The Owl’ is a positively insane, yet gloriously inventive production that boasts more hits than misses.

  • The Legendary Strike

    Apr 11, 2015

    Although there’s the odd hole or inconsistency, the production mostly runs at a sustained pace that draws the viewer along with it.

  • The Magnificent

    Apr 19, 2015

    Director Chan Siu Pang has crafted something that would be considered quite an achievement by many critics – an intelligent and exciting kung fu film.

  • The New One-Armed Swordsman

    Sep 17, 2016

    In just over 90 minutes so much action, story and style is effortless woven together that it shows the brilliance of one of the genre’s finest minds.

  • The Shaolin Plot

    May 23, 2015

    Wong sets the screen alight with a stunning array of kicking that nearly steal the entire film. For this reason – and the assurance that this is a good film – ‘The Shaolin Plot’ is solid entertainment.

  • Trilogy Of Swordsmanship

    Jun 16, 2015

    Though there is talent behind the lens and in front of it, this is a run-of-the-mill swordplay film with a wasted gimmick.

  • Vengeance

    Jun 20, 2015

    There are definitely better films out there than ‘Vengeance’ but Chang Cheh’s experienced editing and camera work do still make it an interesting watch.
