• A Chinese Tall Story

    Feb 28, 2015

    Lau’s modern interpretation is an extremely wild one that is often mind blowing in its visuals, but in truth it’s the heart warming love story that prevails and makes the film a very entertaining one.

  • At The End Of Daybreak

    Feb 18, 2015

    Social realist cinema can be the most edifying and informative genre the medium can offer, but Ho Yu-Hang’s style is such that the only sensation to get from the screen is mild hyperthermia.

  • Clan Of The White Lotus

    Mar 13, 2015

    Another awesome Shaw Brothers film with an insane concept and some heavenly fight action choreographed by the one and only Liu Chia-Liang.

  • 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.

  • Demon Of The Lute

    Mar 6, 2015

    Mainstream Hong Kong cinema has often embraced the bizarre and the baffling, but ‘Demon Of The Lute’ may be a step too far for many.

  • Dirty Ho

    Mar 7, 2015

    This splendid period kung-fu film once again gives evidence of the immense quality that rolled out of the Shaw Brothers studios during the 70’s.

  • Dragon From Shaolin

    Mar 8, 2015

    On paper, this looked a winner: Yuen Biao in an Indiana Jones role fighting an assortment of villains in search of an ancient relic. On celluloid though, this is a grand turkey.

  • Fist Power

    Mar 13, 2015

    ‘Fist Power’ is a very thin framework onto which a few interesting action scenes are hung and should not be treated as a classic of the genre.

  • 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.

  • Kung Fu Wing Chun

    Apr 4, 2015

    After an appalling first half, perhaps we can be grateful that it at least becomes watchable.

  • Legendary Assassin

    Apr 11, 2015

    Not a complete disaster but by no means the showcase that Wu Jing was no doubt hoping it would be.

  • Legendary Weapons Of China

    Apr 11, 2015

    ‘Legendary Weapons of China’ loses impetus when it concentrates on the distracting sub-plot involving Fu Sheng’s kung-fu charlatan, but it is still a refined entry in the genre.
