• An Autumn’s Tale

    Feb 17, 2015

    This highly acclaimed romantic drama proves once again that Hong Kong cinema can be very subtle and is far more varied than some would have the public believe.

  • Banana Cop

    Feb 20, 2015

    ‘Banana Cop’ is a quick-moving film that is at times amusing and at times, thanks to some fine direction, suspense-filled.

  • Carry On Hotel

    Feb 28, 2015

    ‘Carry On Hotel’ should work better than it does, but, due to uninspired writing and direction, is merely passable entertainment.

  • Cherie

    Nov 2, 2017

    Patrick Tam’s ‘Cherie’ is, simply put, little more than a moderately average eighties romantic comedy and decidedly underwhelming when compared against any of the true “greats” of the era.

  • Fatal Love

    Mar 11, 2015

    Little bursts of bone jarring violence, especially the bloody conclusion, help raise the stakes to remind you that you’re not watching ‘Pretty Woman’.

  • Golden Swallow

    Mar 20, 2015

    O Sing-Pui cooks up a stew of heavy-handed comedy, eroticism, romance and horror to send everyone home happy.

  • 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’.

  • Hong Kong Playboys

    Mar 25, 2015

    This is not a comic masterpiece and doesn’t amuse in quite the manner that it imagines it does, but with a leading man of Fu Sheng’s calibre this is almost to be forgiven.

  • Once A Thief

    May 6, 2015

    John Woo really surprised the audiences with this mixture of acrobatic gunplay action and comedy.

  • Peking Opera Blues

    May 11, 2015

    The three female stars are simply flawless with each offering a different aspect to the film’s overall feel.

  • The Dead And The Deadly

    Mar 5, 2015

    All in all, another quality Sammo production that deserves a wider audience.

  • The Eighth Happiness

    Mar 10, 2015

    This is an average comedy film with little to make it stand out and viewers would be better advised watching ‘Diary Of A Big Man’ if they want to see one of Chow Yun-Fat’s comic roles.

  • The Flying Mr. B

    Mar 14, 2015

    With more cheese than a Mini Babybel factory, ‘The Flying Mr. B’ is about dated as Hong Kong comedy gets.

  • The Postman Fights Back

    May 14, 2015

    Whilst fans of the Shaw Brothers back catalogue will definitely find ‘The Postman Fights Back’ comfortable viewing, there is still enough fresh material and wackiness here to make the film worth watching.

  • Winners And Sinners

    Jun 28, 2015

    ‘Winners And Sinners’ may disappoint viewers if they’re expecting to see a Jackie Chan film, but if you appreciate the talents of any of the main actors involved then you are definitely in for a treat.
