• A Better Tomorrow

    Feb 23, 2015

    This is the ‘Citizen Kane’ of HK heroic bloodshed films and it never ages, even after repeat viewings.

  • A Better Tomorrow II

    Feb 23, 2015

    What this film lacks in plot, it sure as hell makes up for in action and the finale of ‘A Better Tomorrow II’ is a brutal display of guns, grenades and swordplay.

  • Changing Partner

    Feb 28, 2015

    ‘Changing Partner’ has enough moments of genuine amusement to help paper over the cracks.

  • Darkside Of Chinatown

    Mar 5, 2015

    A movie worth seeing if you need bringing down a peg or two, but not recommended for those with a depressive nature.

  • Funeral March

    Mar 15, 2015

    By avoiding Hollywood histrionics or schmaltz, a well-worn plot again manages to seem fresh and deeply moving.

  • Inspector Pink Dragon

    Mar 29, 2015

    By no means a classic action comedy, ‘Inspector Pink Dragon’ nonetheless succeeds in providing a entertaining 90-odd minutes.

  • Once A Thief

    May 6, 2015

    John Woo really surprised the audiences with this mixture of acrobatic gunplay action and comedy.

  • Overheard 2

    May 10, 2015

    While ‘Overheard’ was an excellent homage to the great American conspiracy films of the 70s, the in-name-only sequel is a more routine two hours with a far less incisive denouement.

  • 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.

  • Peking Opera Blues

    May 11, 2015

    The three female stars are simply flawless with each offering a different aspect to the film’s overall feel.

  • Police Story 3: Supercop

    May 12, 2015

    This is another great slice of entertainment JC style, and was one of his best performances before his physical shape noticeably began to deteriorate in the mid-90’s.

  • Royal Warriors

    May 19, 2015

    Just scraping into the 4 star category, the ever-watchable Michelle Yeoh produces more classic 80’s action in a way only the battling babes can!

  • Rush Hour 2

    May 19, 2015

    For the first and last 30 minutes I was truly impressed, and loved every minute although there was a short sag in the middle.

  • Thank You, Sir

    Jun 10, 2015

    Despite a storyline that is as old as the hills, there’s something refreshingly simple about the execution of Ivan Lai’s version of events.

  • The Bare-Footed Kid

    Feb 20, 2015

    The film stands out as one of the hidden gems of the 90’s new-wave kung fu movement and provides superb entertainment for even the most discerning viewer.

  • The Blacksheep Affair

    Feb 24, 2015

    ‘The Blacksheep Affair’ is an exhilarating action film that firmly puts Vincent Zhao on the map as a possible successor to Jet Li.

  • The Drummer

    Mar 9, 2015

    Bi serves up familiar twists and turns, yet the way they are presented raises them above expectations, successfully mixing the elements of the triad drama with something quite the opposite.

  • The Killer

    Apr 3, 2015

    It’s amazingly stylish with a brilliantly constructed story and some superb shoot-outs. If you call yourself an action movie fan then this one is going to be right up your alley!

  • The Replacement Killers

    May 17, 2015

    ‘The Replacement Killers’ is a film that borrows heavily from infinitely better works and winds up being distinctly average. While the trendy action still makes it watchable, it’s not enough to push it past the 3 star mark.

  • The Touch

    Jun 15, 2015

    A big-budget mess that occasionally makes good use of its actors, this is a movie that has few strengths to rely on.

  • The Treasure Hunter

    Jun 16, 2015

    The set pieces in general are nice, while the cinematography and the musical score do stand out but again, as a whole the film just doesn’t do what it says on the tin.
