• 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.

  • House Of Fury

    Mar 26, 2015

    It doesn’t rank up there with the best of any genre but for a lightweight action-comedy it is worth a watch.

  • Ip Man: The Final Fight

    Mar 30, 2015

    Herman Yau’s conclusion to the story deserves its place among its contemporaries. And any film with Anthony Wong giving his all is well worth adding to your collection.

  • Just Another Pandora’s Box

    Apr 2, 2015

    Having emerged from the debacle that was ‘Kung-Fu Cyborg’, Jeff Lau returns to his beloved sub-genre of the nonsensical and it’s certainly an improvement on his previous effort.

  • Just One Look

  • The Spy Dad

    Jun 1, 2015

    I did notice my skin peeling off as the film neared its conclusion, though on closer inspection this seems to have been what doctors call ‘The Chapman To effect’.

  • The Twins Effect

    Jun 19, 2015

    Despite what flaws ‘The Twins Effect’ has, it never actually suffers as a result of them as it always retains the viewers interest and successfully juggles comedy, action and horror.

  • The Twins Effect II

    Jun 19, 2015

    As Donnie Yen says at the film’s conclusion “The future is in the hands of these young people” – on the evidence of ‘Twins Effect II’, this isn’t a comforting thought.

  • Twins Mission

    Jun 19, 2015

    ‘Twins Mission’ is a messy affair with a few bright spots to help the 90 minute running time ease past.
