• 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.

  • Crazy N’ The City

    Mar 3, 2015

    Full of humanity and interest, it remarkably manages to takes three or four strong sub-plots and amalgamate them together without letting any of them suffer.

  • Drink, Drank, Drunk

    Mar 9, 2015

    Despite a few criticisms, Yee has crafted a capable film with a tender heart, something not easy to achieve in the cynical world of film-making.

  • 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.

  • Eastern Condors

    Mar 10, 2015

    ‘Eastern Condors’ is a mind blowing mix of kung fu and wartime combat that will have you hooked from start to finish.

  • Full Alert

    Mar 15, 2015

    ‘Full Alert’ is more focused on crime and the effects of violence on the average man than it is on the dynamics of the police thriller.

  • Heart Of Dragon

    Mar 23, 2015

    If you prefer to see Jackie in films like ‘Shanghai Noon’ and ‘Rush Hour’ then this may not be for you, but if you want to see an alternative to his stereotyped bumbling hero then it will certainly deliver.

  • Hit Team

    Mar 25, 2015

    In comparison to what ‘Hit Team’ could have been with a slightly bigger budget and a better realised narrative, this is a disappointment.

  • It Had To Be You

    Mar 30, 2015

    For those who have had their fingers burnt on numerous occasions by Hong Kong rom-coms, I offer up ‘It Had To Be You’ as a partial redemption.

  • Killers From Beijing

    Apr 3, 2015

    There really is very little reason to recommend ‘Killers From Beijing’ as it is disappointing on just about every level of competent film-making.

  • King Of Robbery

    Apr 4, 2015

    Even though he has very little to work with, Simon Yam still manages to impress with his portrayal of yet another mean and moody criminal mastermind.

  • Let’s Sing Along

    Apr 12, 2015

    The driving force of the film is Dayo Wong’s strutting performance – an aspect that viewers will either love or loathe – and the outrageous scenes of various losers battling on the karaoke stage.

  • Lust, Caution

    Apr 18, 2015

    The pace, the emphasis on spy procedure rather than spy spectacle and the often graphic nature of some scenes may not be to everyone’s taste but ‘Lust, Caution’ is a challenging film made for adults.

  • Millionaires’ Express

    Apr 23, 2015

    Newcomers will enjoy the fight action, the slightly more experienced will also appreciate the comedy and the veteran viewer will be entertained by the great cast.

  • Moon Warriors

    Apr 30, 2015

    Instead of just relying on popular new-wave gimmicks, Sammo pushes each of the actors to their limit and, even though there is liberal use of stunt doubles, the effect is impressive to behold.

  • Mr. Vampire Saga IV

    May 1, 2015

    This is possibly the second best of the true Mr. Vampire films and is a worthy purchase for all HK Horror fans.

  • Night Life Hero

    May 4, 2015

    Until that desperate sag half way through, this is an oft-ignored flick that will spark a pleasant feeling of nostalgia in us all.

  • Once Upon A Time In China IV

    May 7, 2015

    The action (ladder fight excepted) is equal to part 1, but not the dramatic element, and it is certainly not the equal of part 2 for fight choreography.

  • Operation Scorpio

    Jul 8, 2015

    This film has been elevated to cult status in recent years and has become a huge favourite with a world-wide audience. All of this is thoroughly deserved.

  • Osaka Wrestling Restaurant

    May 10, 2015

    For anyone who wants something a bit different from Hong Kong’s blockbusters, this may be a worthwhile purchase. Be warned, though, that ‘Osaka Wrestling Restaurant’ is not going to be to everyone’s taste.

  • Paper Marriage

    May 11, 2015

    Although Sammo and Maggie rarely create any convincing chemistry, the film contains enough action and laughs to entertain most Hong Kong fans.

  • Shinjuku Incident

    May 24, 2015

    There’s some very powerful visual displays of violence that pepper the film throughout, showing us that if you turn to the dark side you really will become slave to its master.

  • Star Runner

    Jun 1, 2015

    This leans more towards the quick-cut close ups of more recent Hollywood efforts. Most of the fights are also glossed over as short “highlights” rather than letting us see the full action.

  • Swordsman II

    Jun 6, 2015

    The viewer is treated to a visual feast that fully sketches out this almost mythical setting – kudos once more to director and cinematographer.
