• 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.

  • 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.

  • Bangkok Dangerous

    Feb 20, 2015

    This lacklustre and also very sluggish remake, comes from Nicholas Cage and the Pang Brothers once again and offers nothing new to say and pretty much suffers from the same problems as the original.

  • 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.

  • Cold War II

    Sep 24, 2016

    Like the first film, it is a slick and intense thriller that boasts solid performances from its cast.

  • Downtown Torpedoes

    Mar 8, 2015

    While not proving to be a significant mark in the pages of Hong Kong film history, ‘Downtown Torpedoes’ is still a pleasant diversion that achieves most of its goals.

  • Dr. Wai In “The Scripture With No Words”

    Mar 8, 2015

    The action is about only thing that makes ‘Dr. Wai’ worth watching, with Li on typically fine form for a couple of battles with some interesting opponents.

  • Fallen Angels

    Mar 10, 2015

    ‘Fallen Angels’ may be nice to look at, but may be equally interesting to watch with the sound off as it has very little real soul beyond its sleek facade.

  • Future Cops

    Mar 16, 2015

    ‘Future Cops’ is definitely worth a look for its crazy action and glittering cast, but be warned that the middle section may make you reach for the fast-forward button.

  • High Risk

    Mar 25, 2015

    This action comedy is undoubtedly at its best when Jet Li is given centre stage and allowed to show off his smooth physical moves.

  • Kung Fu Jungle

    Apr 4, 2015

    ‘Kung Fu Killer’, despite its B-movie title and the odd moment of cheesiness, comes very close to bringing back the elation one felt when watching golden era Hong Kong action cinema.

  • Love In The Time Of Twilight

    Apr 15, 2015

    ‘Love In The Time Of Twilight’ is the kind of film that starts awkwardly but increases in stature as the story continues.

  • 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.

  • The Lovers

    Apr 17, 2015

    Despite ‘The Lovers’ undoubted quality, it proves to be short of the magic that it often hints at. Parts of this film therefore prove to be greater than it as a whole.

  • What Price Survival

    Jun 25, 2015

    ‘What Price Survival’ is nice to look at on the surface but is ultimately very tedious and the action sequences make for insufficient compensation. All in all, dull and boring.

  • Wind Blast

    Jun 27, 2015

    A modern day western with some stellar action scenes and a distinctive setting memorably rendered on screen to create a unique action film.
