• 100 Ways To Murder Your Wife

    Jul 2, 2015

    What may sound like an unpleasant crime thriller because of the concept and title is actually another of the comedy films that Chow Yun-Fat made earlier in his career.

  • A Better Tomorrow

    Feb 23, 2015

    This is the ‘Citizen Kane’ of HK heroic bloodshed films and it never ages, even after repeat viewings.

  • A Better Tomorrow II

    Feb 23, 2015

    What this film lacks in plot, it sure as hell makes up for in action and the finale of ‘A Better Tomorrow II’ is a brutal display of guns, grenades and swordplay.

  • A Better Tomorrow III

    Feb 23, 2015

    As a standalone film ‘A Better Tomorrow 3’ is a fairly watchable effort thanks to an intriguing premise, but as a prequel to ‘A Better Tomorrow’ it just doesn’t quite cut it.

  • All About Ah Long

    Feb 16, 2015

    For those willing to explore other genres of Hong Kong films though, ‘All About Ah Long’ is a quality film that continues to have a resonance after it has ended.

  • 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.

  • Bulletproof Monk

    Feb 27, 2015

    Probably best described as a cliché-ridden mess that is condemned by a combination of a poor script, bad casting and laughable action.

  • Cold War II

    Sep 24, 2016

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

  • Confucius

    Mar 1, 2015

    What starts off as quite interesting and engaging becomes progressively more disjointed meaning drama and characters suffer.

  • Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon

    Mar 3, 2015

    The fights are almost seamlessly integrated and amongst some of the best on offer for a few years even if they are not new by Jade screen standards.

  • Curse Of The Golden Flower

    Mar 4, 2015

    ‘Curse Of The Golden Flower’ is another sign of the growing confidence of Chinese cinema, the imagination of Zhang Yimou and the iconic status of Gong Li and Chow Yun-Fat.

  • Dragonball: Evolution

    Mar 9, 2015

    Loud, day-glo and stuffed with ropey CGI madness, for many ‘Dragonball: Evolution’ will be the stuff of nightmares.

  • Fractured Follies

    Mar 15, 2015

    ‘Fractured Follies’ is not big on belly laughs and may not, as was mentioned, be to everyone’s’ tastes. There is, though, a certain something which helps the overall production remain watchable.

  • From Vegas To Macau

    Mar 15, 2015

    It’s best viewed as an occasionally enjoyable diversion that, on sporadic occasions, hints at how good a reboot of one of the 80s most iconic film series could be.

  • From Vegas To Macau II

    Sep 17, 2016

    ‘From Vegas To Macau II’ gets very mild commendation for a few nods to past glories and the occasional joke that doesn’t feel like waterboarding.

  • From Vegas To Macau III

    Oct 5, 2016

    Packed with the deluge of banality and popular references that will doubtlessly age the film well before it’s time, this third part is every bit as frustrating and lazy as the one that came before it.

  • Full Contact

    Mar 15, 2015

    ‘Full Contact’ is a true action classic that boasts strong leading performances, inventive direction and mind-blowing fight scenes.

  • God Of Gamblers

    Mar 21, 2015

    It is a true genre-defining classic that will go down in Hong Kong cinema history as one of the greats.

  • Hard Boiled

    Mar 22, 2015

    John Woo allowed his imagination and cinematic showmanship full flight in ‘Hard Boiled’, strapping his trademark visuals and themes to an RPG and launching them into orbit.

  • Hong Kong 1941

    Mar 25, 2015

    ‘Hong Kong 1941’ is a powerful and moving study of the effects of war on the ordinary person and the strains of such pressure on any friendship.

  • Let The Bullets Fly

    Apr 12, 2015

    Entertaining in parts with a game cast on good form but frustratingly uneven and unsatisfying a film as a whole, ‘Let the Bullets Fly’ lays on the political subtext but forgets to have fun with it.

  • Now You See Love… Now You Don’t

    May 4, 2015

    ‘Now You See Love… Now You Don’t’ is engrossing and eventually quite touching.

  • Once A Thief

    May 6, 2015

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

  • Shanghai

    May 22, 2015

    ‘Shanghai’ is an entertaining watch buoyed by an impressive cast which features several Eastern superstars showing they can hold their own against some of Hollywood’s finest.
