• Aces Go Places

    Feb 16, 2015

    Unlike much of today’s canto-comedy, the humour in ‘Aces.’ translates very well and certainly doesn’t seem to have dated after nearly twenty-years.

  • Aces Go Places II

    Feb 16, 2015

    The formula that made the original so successful has naturally remained untampered, but the scope of effects and stunts clearly expanded.

  • Aces Go Places III: Our Man In Bond Street

    Feb 16, 2015

    Alongside this familiar narrative is the constantly disarming duo of Samuel Hui and Karl Maka and they of course continue to show great comic timing and interplay in the familiar roles of Sam and Kodijack.

  • Aces Go Places IV: You Never Die Twice

    Feb 16, 2015

    Unlike ‘Aces. III’ which failed to integrate the eastern and the western elements of the film, ‘Aces. IV’ succeeds in creating a globe-hopping adventure without losing its main Asian audience.

  • Aces Go Places V: The Terracotta Hit

    Feb 16, 2015

    The film boasts a truly stellar cast and good production values, but sadly the saga had run out of steam.

  • All The Wrong Clues

    Feb 16, 2015

    It’s such a shame that one of Lam’s more appealing roles is hamstrung by unusually poor direction from Tsui Hark.

  • By Hook Or By Crook

    Feb 27, 2015

    Hung and Wu Ma still manage to keep the film interesting with their charming on-screen personas and some noteworthy kung fu routines.

  • Dirty Tiger, Crazy Frog

    Mar 7, 2015

    ‘Dirty Tiger, Crazy Frog’ doesn’t compare to Sammo’s classics, but it’s diverting enough to persuade genre fans to catch it.

    Mar 23, 2015

    This provides solid viewing for fans while the veterans will no doubt enjoy spotting the endless array of familiar faces in the background.

    Mar 25, 2015

    It entertains throughout its duration and despite the usual kung-fu comedy conventions turning up it is a breath of fresh air.

  • Knockabout

    Apr 4, 2015

    The action is simply electric, most notably the two-against-one finale that pits Sammo and Yuen against Liu Chia Yung.

  • Lucky Stars Go Places

    Apr 17, 2015

    Although certain aspects of the series have changed in this third part, ‘Lucky Stars Go Places’ still proves to be an entertaining and undemanding film that fits well into this popular film series.

    May 5, 2015

    Anyone searching for a traditional kung-fu flick that is filled with sublime choreography need look no further than this.

  • Skinny Tiger And Fatty Dragon

    May 27, 2015

    Another superb Sammo film which sees him team up with Karl Maka for more hijinks.

  • The Bodyguard

    Sep 28, 2016

    It’s not a perfect film by any means, but it succeeds in painting an interesting portrait of an aging gentleman looking for a little redemption.

  • The Magnificent Scoundrels

    Apr 19, 2015

    There’s little room for Chow’s trademark “fast speak” here, and it’s definitely more ‘Three Stooges’ than ‘Monty Python’.

  • The Thirty Million Rush

    Jun 10, 2015

    The strength of Karl Maka’s slice of entertainment is its wilful exuberance and obvious intention of creating a fun atmosphere.

  • The Victim

    Jun 21, 2015

    ‘The Victim’ is a fine mixture of action comedy and even drama – three elements that director Sammo Hung juggles with masterful dexterity.
