• All About Women

    Feb 16, 2015

    ‘All About Women’ is hard work, something I never thought I’d be writing about a Tsui Hark film.

  • Call Of Heroes

    Dec 19, 2016

    Superbly paced, mounted and executed, one should simply sit back and enjoy this kung fu spectacle.

  • 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.

  • Cold War II

    Sep 24, 2016

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

  • Duckweed

    Jun 13, 2017

    There aren’t any surprises in ‘Duckweed’, but for a well made feel-good film it’s about as good as we’ll see this year.

  • Jump Ashin!

    Apr 2, 2015

    For all its minor shortcomings though, ‘Jump Ashin’ is an affecting production that has enough of a hardened edge to make the eventual redemption welcome.

  • Love You You

    Apr 16, 2015

    Despite being obsessively devoted to the rom-com rule book – so much so that you can almost pinpoint the exact minute of each expected twist – this is something of a refreshing surprise.

  • Operation Mekong

    Jul 1, 2017

    Lam has made better films but, along with Benny Chan, he is at the forefront of Hong Kong action in terms of delivering large scale spectacle.

  • Our Time Will Come

    Jan 19, 2018

  • Rise Of The Legend

    Oct 13, 2016

    Wong Fei-Hung gets the revisionist upgrade that someone, somewhere asked for and the results, though mixed, are mostly positive.

  • Tai Chi Hero

    Jun 7, 2015

    The style of this sequel is just as frenetic as its forerunner, combining visual cues from video games and anime along with the steam-punk vision of 19th century China.

  • Tai Chi Zero

    Jun 8, 2015

    Despite being as absurdly hyperactive as a coffee junkie with St. Vitus’ Dance, ‘Tai Chi Zero’ is fun and snappy for most of its running time.

  • The Bodyguard

    Sep 28, 2016

    It’s not a perfect film by any means, but it succeeds in painting an interesting portrait of an aging gentleman looking for a little redemption.

  • The Great Wall

    Feb 28, 2017

    ‘The Great Wall’ packs in a monster amount of large scale action as Damon, Jing et al take on the horde of monsters in ever increasingly elaborate ways.
