    When the main story takes centre stage, the viewer’s interest is likely to be lost and the plot-holes difficult to reconcile.

  • Anna In Kung Fu Land

    Feb 17, 2015

    It’s doubtful whether even non-action audiences will be fully satisfied by this entertaining, but insubstantial production

  • Beauty On Duty!

    Feb 22, 2015

    The main problem with ‘Beauty On Duty’ is that it’s essentially a distillation of the legion of unfunny moments that Wong Jing has created throughout his long career.

  • Breaking News

    Feb 26, 2015

    ‘Breaking News’ is punctuated by tension-filled action set-pieces, but its main draw is the sharp characterisation and the insightful critique of the media that fills most of the running time.

  • 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.

  • Driving Miss Wealthy

    Mar 9, 2015

    ‘Driving Miss Wealthy’ simply isn’t sharp enough or emotionally engaging enough to sustain the attention.

  • Dummy Mommy, Without A Baby

    Mar 9, 2015

    The film is reliant on the gentle charm of its principle cast and the genuine warmth of the relationships therein.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Final Romance

    Mar 13, 2015

    Mak paces the narrative in a very delicate way, choosing to build the romance between his leads rather than just rely on ‘big scenes’ to do the work for him.

  • From Vegas To Macau

    Mar 15, 2015

    It’s best viewed as an occasionally enjoyable diversion that, on sporadic occasions, hints at how good a reboot of one of the 80s most iconic film series could be.

  • Games Gamblers Play

    Mar 16, 2015

    As an introduction to the Hui brothers or Hong Kong comedy in general, this is a fine starting point.

  • Heart Into Hearts

    Mar 23, 2015

    ‘Heart Into Hearts’ is subsequently a perfect example of the law of diminishing returns, a sequel that tries to impress with its relative opulence but forgets how important its characters are.

  • Heat Team

    Mar 23, 2015

    ‘Heat Team’ will undoubtedly baffle more than it will appease; the fractured style and severe lack of focus on what the film actually wants to achieve is difficult to forgive.

  • Help!!!

    Mar 23, 2015

    Not a Brunel intellectual challenge, this is a recommended satirical comedy, easy to enjoy and a feather in the cap of Johnnie To’s varied filmography.

  • Herbal Tea

    Mar 24, 2015

    It may be relatively incident free and not as prestigious as many of its contemporaries, yet this is still a film that earns mild commendation.

  • Hidden Heroes

    Mar 24, 2015

    At nearly two hours long, ‘Hidden Heroes’ is an ordeal that only those versed in S.A.S. survival tactics should ever attempt.

  • It Had To Be You

    Mar 30, 2015

    For those who have had their fingers burnt on numerous occasions by Hong Kong rom-coms, I offer up ‘It Had To Be You’ as a partial redemption.

  • Let’s Sing Along

    Apr 12, 2015

    The driving force of the film is Dayo Wong’s strutting performance – an aspect that viewers will either love or loathe – and the outrageous scenes of various losers battling on the karaoke stage.

  • Looking For Mister Perfect

    Apr 13, 2015

    ‘Looking For Mister Perfect’ is the kind of light and fluffy film that one would associate with Wong Jing or Joe Ma and not the man responsible for savage hits like ‘City On Fire’ and ‘Full Contact’.

  • Love On The Rocks

    Apr 16, 2015

    Lam puts a tried-and-tested couple together on the screen, fills the narrative with sweet and humorous asides and ends on an emotionally stirring reconciliation scene.

  • Love Undercover

    Apr 16, 2015

    Although it is a lightweight effort that doesn’t generate too many belly laughs, ‘Love Undercover’ succeeds with an immense charm that sweeps the viewer away.

  • Love Undercover 2: Love Mission

    Apr 16, 2015

    Joe Ma’s goal is to create a fun comedy that highlights the charm of Miriam Yeung and absorbs the viewer in her outlandish adventures – in this regard the film is a definite success.

  • Love Undercover 3

    Apr 16, 2015

    ‘Love Undercover 3’ is packed with a cast all too willing to overact for the camera while also featuring a somnolent leading man who offers little for Sit to work with.
