• Darkside Of Chinatown

    Mar 5, 2015

    A movie worth seeing if you need bringing down a peg or two, but not recommended for those with a depressive nature.

  • Death Duel

    Mar 6, 2015

    ‘Death Duel’ is a bleak, nihilistic swordplay film that embodies all of the qualities that one expects from a Chor Yuen adaptation of a Gu Long story.

  • Dreadnaught

    Mar 9, 2015

    It’s very strange how such a well-polished and highly entertaining film has come under such criticism from some Hong Kong film fans.

  • Magnificent Butcher

    Apr 19, 2015

    This film could be recommended alone for it’s exceptional fight action, but as you’d expect from this cast there’s much more on offer.

  • One-Armed Swordsman

    May 7, 2015

    Without any argument, ‘One-Armed Swordsman’ is therefore a quality swordplay film that has much to offer to viewers today.

  • Project A Part II

    May 16, 2015

    It was impossible to match the original classic, but Chan pulled out all of the stops to make sure he gave it his best.

  • Story Of Ricky

    Jun 2, 2015

    Loaded with larger-than-life characters and absolutely overflowing with gore, ‘Story Of Ricky’ is an insane outing that hops from one bizarre confrontation to another.

  • 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 Buddhist Fist

    Feb 27, 2015

    Unfortunately, for veterans of old-school flicks, the choreography on display here is nothing new, and a lot of it takes place in the dark, which makes it less than easy to follow.

  • The Jade Tiger

    Apr 1, 2015

    Even fans of the convoluted martial world of the swordplay genre may find ‘Jade Tiger’ a tiresome 90 minutes.

  • The Monkey Goes West

    Apr 27, 2015

    The amusing antics of the Monkey king and Pigsy always seem to make for good movie material and I’m happy to report that this film is no exception.

  • The Postman Fights Back

    May 14, 2015

    Whilst fans of the Shaw Brothers back catalogue will definitely find ‘The Postman Fights Back’ comfortable viewing, there is still enough fresh material and wackiness here to make the film worth watching.

  • The Sentimental Swordsman

    May 22, 2015

    Chor Yuen is once again painstaking in his vision of the visual ambience of the martial world, while he also gets fine performances out of his cast.

  • The Trail Of The Broken Blade

    Jun 16, 2015

    A four-star movie that, due to its heavy-handed closing shots, loses half a star; the same idea was used with much more sophistication at the end of ‘Anonymous Heroes’.

  • The Twelve Gold Medallions

    Jun 18, 2015

    Strong performances, intelligently filmed action and an all round aura of quality mean that this comfortably hits a four star rating.

  • The Water Margin

    Jun 23, 2015

    ‘The Water Margin’ is the kind of grandiose masterwork that is enthralling and, despite the presence of three accomplished directors, has a remarkable consistency to it.

  • The Young Master

    Jun 30, 2015

    Possibly not as well structured or action packed as ‘Drunken Master’, but still an impressive note in both Biao’s and Jackie’s filmography making it an essential purchase for fans of old school kung fu.

  • Valley Of The Fangs

    Mar 26, 2018

    From opening credits that ape the Spaghetti Westerns of the period to its surprising epilogue wrap-up, ‘Valley of the Fangs’ is an equally surprising and unexpected hidden gem.
