• A Heroic Fight

    Mar 24, 2015

    For anyone who wants a blast of what exceptional imaginations used to do with minor budgets, ‘A Heroic Fight’ will refresh more than it will befuddle.

  • Carry On Pickpocket

    Feb 28, 2015

    Starts out as a fairly happy-go-lucky comedy but eventually culminates in an all action finale that is surprisingly violent for a film of this ilk.

  • Crippled Avengers

    Mar 3, 2015

    This is probably one of the most acrobatic Venoms films as they participate in some extremely complicated routines that are brilliantly put together.

  • Dragon Fight

    Mar 8, 2015

    The film suffers from inconsistent pacing with a good opening, a relatively slow middle section and an excellent climax – featuring some blistering fight action.

  • Dragons Forever

    Mar 9, 2015

    Chan and Hung continue to substantiate their legendary status in the cinematic hall of fame, but it is Yuen Biao who really steals the film.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Heaven And Hell

    Oct 4, 2017

    ‘Heaven and Hell’ is actually a whole lot more interesting, and engaging, than one would outwardly expect from its (largely) negative reputation.

  • In The Line Of Duty III

    Mar 28, 2015

    Many of the fight sequences are powerful and realistic, and there is a good balance between cinematic choreography and outright simple bloodshed.

  • Killer Constable

    Apr 12, 2015

    ‘Killer Constable’ could have been a genre film with a heart as well as a brain; as it is, this is a good, but not great kung fu film in both action and content.

  • 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.

  • Mismatched Couples

    Apr 24, 2015

    Donnie Yen takes on a role similar to the one he played in ‘Drunken Tai Chi’ and once again shows how effortless it is for him to combine incredible physical aptitude with a pleasing screen persona.

  • 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.

  • Pom Pom

    May 14, 2015

    ‘Pom Pom’ is a typically enjoyable 80’s Hong Kong comedy that will definitely strike a chord with fans of the ‘Lucky Stars’.

  • Project A

    May 16, 2015

    Using the conventions of the 30’s Hollywood swashbucklers mixed with his insane stunts and sublime fight action, Chan produced one of his best ever films.

  • Project S

    May 16, 2015

    Stanley Tong continues to show his skill in the action genre with more kinetic direction.

  • Proud And Confident

    May 16, 2015

    It’s undeniably rough around the edges, but in its favour it has a solid cast and some good interaction between the characters – certainly worth an evenings viewing.

  • Rosa

    May 19, 2015

    While ‘Rosa’ isn’t one of the best action-comedies to come out of Hong Kong in the 80’s, it is still a constantly watchable one.

  • Shaolin Hand Lock

    May 23, 2015

    It boasts some top notch fight scenes which are further enhanced by another standout performance from the late great Lo Lieh.

  • 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 Brave Archer

    Feb 26, 2015

    Unfortunately ‘The Brave Archer’ is one of Chang Cheh’s least assured efforts as he foolishly tries to fit in all of the sub-plots and characters of this vast novel.

  • The Champions

    Feb 28, 2015

    By the time the end credits start to run, there is the definite feeling that strong potential has been wasted.

  • The Kid With The Golden Arm

    Apr 3, 2015

    Not as plot driven or character based as ‘Five Venoms’, ‘The Kid With The Golden Arm’ concentrates on the stylish action that dominates its running time.

  • The Owl And Dumbo

    May 10, 2015

    While not offering the very finest of Sammo’s work, ‘The Owl And Dumbo’ is an entertaining and worthwhile slice of 80’s Hong Kong cinema.
