• 97 Aces Go Places

    Jul 19, 2015

    Even though I was eager to like the film and the trailer helped make this seem a possibility, this is a major disappointment – even for the most forgiving fans of the Samuel Hui/Karl Maka classic.

  • All’s Well, Ends Well ’97

    Feb 17, 2015

    Chow Sing-Chi completists may want to seek it out, but everyone else should divert their attention to his many more accomplished films.

  • Bruce Lee, My Brother

    Feb 26, 2015

    Those jonesing for action may feel the pace sag, but ‘Bruce Lee, My Brother’ is a brilliant period family drama.

  • Conman In Tokyo

    Mar 1, 2015

    This isn’t the best ever Hong Kong movie – it isn’t even the best ever Hong Kong gambling movie – but it could have been much worse.

  • Fantasia

    Mar 10, 2015

    This, as you can tell from my gushing praise, is a film that has an obvious admiration and affection for the films that inspired it.

  • Gen-Y Cops

    Mar 16, 2015

    For all the plot holes and script deficiencies, this is an excellent slice of Hong Kong entertainment with a return to the edict of fun film-making that made the 80’s stand out.

  • Love On Delivery

    Apr 15, 2015

    This may not be his very best comedy, but it is definitely worthwhile and among his better efforts. Therefore this still has much to commend and is well worth watching.

  • Mermaid Got Married

    Apr 22, 2015

    Though director Norman Law sets up a few interesting rivalries between the characters, the film tends to get too bogged down in its teen romance sub-plot.

  • Red Wolf

    May 17, 2015

    While it remains watchable, ‘Red Wolf’ really suffers from its own inability to create anything fresh.

  • Tai Chi II

    Jun 7, 2015

    ‘Tai Chi II’ features an average plot and some unnecessary over-the-top moments, but is a decent effort that usually earns little attention from Hong Kong film fans.

  • The Bodyguard From Beijing

    Feb 25, 2015

    ‘The Bodyguard From Beijing’ had the potential to be remembered as a classic action film, but Corey Yuen has failed miserably compared to his other wonderful classics.

  • The God Of Cookery

    Mar 31, 2015

    Not only does it contain some of Stephen Chow’s most finely honed comedy, but it also sees him giving one of his more heartfelt and dramatic performances.

  • The Medallion

    Apr 22, 2015

    The main problem with ‘The Medallion’ is it looks just like a Hollywood film with a modest budget. In fact it’s not even as good as his Hollywood films, including ‘The Tuxedo’.
