• 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.

  • Comeuppance

    Mar 1, 2015

    The style and substance of ‘Comeuppance’ are in well-balanced equilibrium as neither overtakes the other, but there is still something indefinable that proves to be obvious by the time the credits roll.

  • Dial D For Demons

    Apr 26, 2018

    ‘Dial D for Demons’ is a modest but effective Hong Kong ghost story and generates just enough suspense to keep one on edge until the finale.

  • Downtown Torpedoes

    Mar 8, 2015

    While not proving to be a significant mark in the pages of Hong Kong film history, ‘Downtown Torpedoes’ is still a pleasant diversion that achieves most of its goals.

  • Enter The Eagles

    Mar 10, 2015

    This is an excellent action flick in the vein of Yuen Kwai’s 80’s actioners such as ‘Yes, Madam’ and ‘Righting Wrongs’ and is certainly a class above more recent efforts from the HK action circuit.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Hot War

    Mar 26, 2015

    Although this didn’t set the Hong Kong box-office alight, it is still recommended viewing.

  • Initial D

    Mar 29, 2015

    The linear narrative and lack of real danger in the story may limit what would otherwise be a sure-fire hit.

  • 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.
