• 14 Blades

    Jul 2, 2015

    It has numerous nods to the Shaw Brothers classics and harks back to those swordplay flicks of yesteryear, making you smile, cry, jump for joy and shout like a banshee, like any good martial arts film should.

  • Challenge Of The Masters

    Feb 28, 2015

    Despite the fact that ‘Challenge Of The Masters’ hasn’t aged as well as some of Liu Chia-Liang’s other notable works, there’s undoubtedly much on offer for genre fans and the casual cinema-goer.

  • Disciples Of Shaolin

    Mar 7, 2015

    The film has stood the test of time in terms of fight action, performances and direction, all of which are exceptional.

  • Dragon Lord

    Mar 8, 2015

    Chan tries to introduce the new quick-cut style of action alongside a significant measure of pure entertainment and humour.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Enter The Fat Dragon

    Mar 10, 2015

    ‘Enter the Fat Dragon’ is a warm homage to the man who popularised martial arts cinema around the world.

  • Fatal Move

    Mar 11, 2015

    ‘Fatal Move’ is most certainly flawed and could have been a lot tighter and less meandering. Yet it still manages to be an entertaining slice of gangster action that entertains if never really ignites.

  • Five Shaolin Masters

    Mar 13, 2015

    With ‘Five Shaolin Masters’, there is a definite impression that the great director’s inspirational ideas of brotherhood and honour are somehow diluted.

  • 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.

  • Heroes Two

    Mar 24, 2015

    ‘Heroes Two’ is not one of the definitive collaborations between Chang Cheh and Fu Sheng, but it offers quality in most departments.

  • Iron Fisted Monk

    Mar 30, 2015

    Any Sammo Hung fan would love this film, as would anyone who enjoys old-school martial arts flicks.

  • Kung Fu Vs. Yoga

    Apr 4, 2015

    ‘Kung Fu Vs. Yoga’ does not rank among the absolute cream of the genre, but there is definite enjoyment on offer here.

  • 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.

  • Men From The Monastery

    Apr 22, 2015

    Chang Cheh delivers a multi-layered kung-fu drama that is ripe with excellent characterisation and well-choreographed action.

  • Oh! Yes Sir!!!

    May 6, 2015

    ‘Oh! Yes Sir!!!’ could have perhaps been more appealing if there had been added emphasis on the action or a little less smuttiness in the humour.

  • Once Upon A Time In Shanghai

    May 7, 2015

    The master stroke is of course the incorporation of Yuen Woo Ping as fight choreographer and he serves up some of the best fisticuffs of recent years.

  • Police Story

    May 12, 2015

    ‘Police Story’ is one of the finest examples of 80’s Hong Kong cinema, with so many amazing elements that make it a joy to behold.

  • Snake Deadly Act

    May 28, 2015

    ‘Snake Deadly Act’ is a typical example of a good, but not great independent kung fu flick.

  • Snake In The Eagle’s Shadow

    May 28, 2015

    ‘Snake In The Eagle’s Shadow’ gave Jackie his first chance to shine outside the reigns of Lo Wei, and under the expert guidance of Woo Ping and Ng See Yuen delivers a classic of the genre.

  • 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 Gold Hunters

    Mar 19, 2015

    When the story steps up a gear and begins to blend in various antagonists, ‘The Gold Hunters’ becomes a joy to behold.

  • The Invincible Power Of Kindness

    Mar 30, 2015

    Director Frankie Chan does, to his credit, use some intriguing environments and fully capitalises on the grandeur of the wild landscape. However he pays little intention to any logical development of plot or characters.

  • 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.
