• A World Without Thieves

    Jun 28, 2015

    This is a lustrous production that flatters to deceive, aiming for the intellect, but eventually preferring to show empty spectacle and supposed depth.

  • A-1

    Feb 15, 2004

    There are moments of entertainment here, but the flat denouement sums up the lack of real polish that the preceding 100 minutes had provided.

  • 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.

  • Dance Of A Dream

    Mar 4, 2015

    ‘Dance Of A Dream’ is an enjoyable, yet forgettable romantic comedy that is an amble display of the good and the bad of Andrew Lau as director.

  • Drug War

    Mar 9, 2015

    Johnnie To charges out the gate with ‘Drug War’: a blitz of tension, style and almost unrelenting momentum.

  • 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.

  • Infernal Affairs

    Mar 31, 2015

    The film has one of the best stories I’ve seen in quite a while and the cast and crew all produce some of their finest work to date.

  • Ip Man

    Mar 30, 2015

    If you’re an action fan you won’t be disappointed and for me, this is Donnie Yen’s best film to date from an acting perspective.

  • Jiang Hu

    Apr 1, 2015

    Clocking in at around the 80 minute mark, ‘Jiang Hu’ is short and snappy, delving into a a specific moment in the characters lives making it neither overly complex or lacking in substance.

  • Mad Detective

    Apr 18, 2015

    If you like your cop thrillers but want something just a little different then ‘Mad Detective’ has got both bases covered.

  • Motorway

    Apr 30, 2015

    ‘Motorway’ is a stripped down action thriller that dispenses with such luxuries as sub-plots to concentrate fully on the battle between cops and robbers.

  • Overheard 3

    May 10, 2015

    Wordy, but with nothing to say, this is a verbose movie populated by monumentally dull characters and bland ‘twists’ that fail to hold the attention.

  • Sparrow

    Jun 1, 2015

    ‘Sparrow’ is the archetypal Curate’s Egg, a film that fuses together precious few moments of brilliance with a heavy dose of lethargy, rendering the finished article difficult to digest.

  • The Kid

    Apr 3, 2015

    ‘The Kid’ offers very little that’s new or different. Nonetheless it commands the attention with some earnest acting and straight-forward directing.

  • Triangle

    Jun 16, 2015

    ‘Triangle’ is a tense ride, an interesting character piece, oozes style and features a breathless and exhilarating last act making it an interesting and always entertaining experiment from directors Hark, Lam and To.

  • Vengeance

    Jun 20, 2015

    If you love the gunplay genre then you’ll love ‘Vengeance’ as it’s amazing to look at, but the story does take a backseat so that the action can be given centre stage.

  • Wait ‘Til You’re Older

    Jun 22, 2015

    ‘Wait ‘Til You’re Older’ is commercial film-making at its most polished, yet contains a few brave decisions by director Teddy Chen.

  • Yesterday Once More

    Jun 30, 2015

    The lead characters are completely uninvolving and most of the actors make no attempt to fight against the lacklustre writing.
