• 2000 AD

    Jul 3, 2015

    Although this movie was enjoyable from start to finish, it still lacked something to make it an above average thriller, while the few surprises in store make it unlikely to be viewed more than once.

  • 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.

  • A Man Called Hero

    Apr 20, 2015

    Andrew Lau has a very obvious formula for making comic book adaptations and it’s one that is ultimately not very satisfying.

  • 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.

  • Bakery Amour

    Feb 20, 2015

    The film is a flawed attempt that offers a pleasant 100 minutes of entertainment, but nothing more substantial.

  • Big Bullet

    Feb 23, 2015

    Although the state of Hong Kong cinema is much approved now, it’s hard to forget the wretched state just a few years ago. ‘Big Bullet’ really stood out when it was released and remains a class act.

  • Clean My Name, Mr. Coroner!

    Mar 1, 2015

    There is no doubt that this quirky and engrossing production has its faults; not all of the loose ends are successfully tied up and those that are seem to work out a little too neatly.

  • Crazy N’ The City

    Mar 3, 2015

    Full of humanity and interest, it remarkably manages to takes three or four strong sub-plots and amalgamate them together without letting any of them suffer.

  • Exiled

    Mar 10, 2015

    ‘Exiled’ is a riveting portrayal of a group of friends sticking by one another as their once chosen profession threatens to kill them all.

  • 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.

  • Full Alert

    Mar 15, 2015

    ‘Full Alert’ is more focused on crime and the effects of violence on the average man than it is on the dynamics of the police thriller.

  • God Of Gamblers 3 – The Early Stage

    Mar 19, 2015

    The film has neither the charm or magic of the original ‘God Of Gamblers’ and fails to competently put together a back story that is worthy of its hero.

  • Handsome Siblings

    Mar 22, 2015

    Above average production values help and a touch of style to the proceedings as does the all-star cast, but it still may not be enough to earn this a proper recommendation.

  • Himalaya Singh

    Mar 25, 2015

    ‘Himalaya Singh’ is a depressing fusion of noise and colour that Hong Kong cinema can ill-afford to keep churning out.

  • Juliet In Love

    Apr 2, 2015

    ‘Juliet In Love’ could be well-described as a economic and perhaps minimal love story; there are no grand gestures or over-the-top histrionics.

  • Kung Fu Cult Master

    Apr 4, 2015

    The pairing of Jet Li and Sammo should have spawned a masterpiece, but instead the audience is left with this disheartening effort.

  • Love Trilogy

    Apr 16, 2015

    ‘Love Trilogy’ is a fine film that flawlessly juggles three stories while also hinting at some exquisite symbolism to cement its point.

  • McDull, The Alumni

    Apr 22, 2015

    Samson Chiu can be congratulated for taking a bold step in a new direction while still retaining much of the gentle punch that is associated with the brand.

  • Once Upon A Time In Triad Society

    May 7, 2015

    ‘Once Upon A Time In Triad Society’ is a great little movie, purely down to Francis Ng in what must be one of his greatest roles.

  • 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.

  • Satan Returns

    Sep 17, 2016

    ‘Satan Returns’ can’t decide if it’s a serious dark thriller or a goofy over-the-top action horror combo.

  • Shamo

    May 22, 2015

    It’s gonna be a love it or loathe it kind of movie as it’s not the dark, vicious film I expected, although there are some disturbing scenes thrown in there.

  • The Bride With White Hair

    Feb 26, 2015

    Yu’s extravagant use of colour and innovative camera techniques are extremely pleasing, but in no way make up for the lack of depth missing from the rest of the film.

  • The Flirtong Scholar

    Mar 14, 2015

    A love story, comedy and action film all rolled into one, ‘The Flirtong Scholar’ is top entertainment for experienced HK movie connoisseurs or newcomers alike.
