• 72 Tenants Of Prosperity

    Jul 19, 2015

    With a welcome big screen appearance by Anita Yuen and an all-star rendition of Sam Hui’s beloved ’Private Eyes’ theme, this celebration of Hong Kong is an unpretentious distraction.

  • A Battle Of Wits

    Feb 21, 2015

    ‘A Battle Of Wits’ is that rare work that is exciting, tense and yet is an introspective on the violence, war and conformity.

  • Crazy Shaolin Disciples

    Mar 3, 2015

    While ‘Crazy Shaolin Disciples’ does have a few merits, I’d have to say that there is far better available elsewhere.

  • Demon Of The Lute

    Mar 6, 2015

    Mainstream Hong Kong cinema has often embraced the bizarre and the baffling, but ‘Demon Of The Lute’ may be a step too far for many.

  • Fast Fingers

    Mar 11, 2015

    While ‘Fast Fingers’ may be seen as a combination of kung-fu and comedy, it is more memorable for being an amalgam of the sublime and the ridiculous.

  • Fist Of Legend

    Mar 13, 2015

    In my opinion, this is Jet Li’s best work as he carries the film well, performing brilliantly in the films numerous fight sequences.

  • Masked Avengers

    Apr 21, 2015

    Although this isn’t the best Venoms film, it certainly isn’t the worst and still features a hundred reasons why it should be recommended viewing.

  • Mr. Vampire

    May 1, 2015

    This is the definitive comedy horror, which coupled with Sammo Hung’s own ‘Encounter Of The Spooky Kind’ provide the two greatest examples of the genre, and therefore should not be missed.

  • New Kids In Town

    May 4, 2015

    This is a modern day martial arts actioner in the style of the 80’s best, and should therefore be sought out by fans of similar fare. It will not disappoint.

  • Rolls, Rolls I Love You

    May 18, 2015

    What this interesting little oddity lacks in thrills and spills it therefore makes up for in good ol’ 80s synth-pop, day-glo, bubble-permed fun.

  • Ten Tigers Of Kwantung

    Jun 10, 2015

    The final word is that this is highly recommended for the teaming of fifteen or so of the top stars of the Shaw Brothers era. As a stand-alone production though, ‘Ten Tigers Of Kwantung’ is not Chang Cheh’s best.

  • The Blonde Fury

    Feb 24, 2015

    If, like me, you loved the 80’s action style of people like Yuen Kwai then this is a good purchase, as the fights stand up to repeat viewings even if the rest does not.

  • The Lost Bladesman

    Apr 14, 2015

    Eschewing any flashiness for a more old school and care given to character and pacing approach, Chong and Mak craft a beautifully shot and finely acted period piece.

  • The Tai-Chi Master

    Jun 8, 2015

    Packed full of superbly choreographed fight sequences and sporting solid leading performances, it is definitely one of the finest kung fu movies to emerge from Hong Kong during the 90s.

  • Two Champions Of Shaolin

    Jun 19, 2015

    What starts off in a very prosaic and none too exciting manner quickly develops into another winning entry in the Venoms’ pantheon.

  • Vampire Vs. Vampire

    Jun 20, 2015

    The peripheral cast all read like a who’s who of HK cinema, and it does not pretend to do anything other than offer 90 minutes of lightweight entertainment. Definitely recommended.
