• A Roof With A View

    May 19, 2015

    The pace flags slightly near the end with a final section that is needlessly padded out, but there’s much to absorb in Tony Au’s work.

  • Beloved Son Of God

    Feb 22, 2015

    If you can ignore some of its minor quirks, ‘Beloved Son of God’ is highly recommended viewing thanks to the wonderful and touching performances from Cheng, Wu Ma and Cheung.

  • Carry On Hotel

    Feb 28, 2015

    ‘Carry On Hotel’ should work better than it does, but, due to uninspired writing and direction, is merely passable entertainment.

  • Crime Story

    Mar 3, 2015

    This isn’t a Jackie Chan film, it’s a very entertaining and absorbing action-thriller that just so happens to have a strong central performance from a man called Chan.

  • Dr. Lamb

    Mar 8, 2015

    Despite the occasional bloody highlight, ‘Dr. Lamb’ is a tough film to recommend as it often feels like little more than a collection of brutal murders.

  • Flash Point

    Mar 14, 2015

    ‘Flash Point’ isn’t a perfect film in the classical cinematic sense, but it is a damn fine action movie that doesn’t short change the viewer in any department.

  • Fun And Fury

    Mar 15, 2015

    The film sags in the middle and therefore loses it’s way, however it remains undemanding entertainment.

  • Kung Fu Scholar

    Apr 4, 2015

    There’s little to recommend this uncomfortable kung fu comedy so don’t be in any hurry to watch it.

  • Let’s Go Slam Dunk

    Apr 12, 2015

    ‘Let’s Go Slam Dunk’ cannot seem to decide whether it is aiming for heart-felt sentiment or low-brow, ‘Lucky Stars’-style comedy.

  • Lethal Contact

    Apr 12, 2015

    ‘Lethal Contact’ is as unfunny as film-making gets, with endless low-brow jokes that fail to register even the slightest smirk.

  • 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.

  • Mermaid Got Married

    Apr 22, 2015

    Though director Norman Law sets up a few interesting rivalries between the characters, the film tends to get too bogged down in its teen romance sub-plot.

  • Mr. Smart

    May 1, 2015

    Kent Cheng shows that he was a fine character actor and a capable enough director to make this rise above its modest potential.

  • Once Upon A Time In China

    May 6, 2015

    Hark combines a well-paced and beautifully photographed narrative with strong characters and exciting fight action.

  • Once Upon A Time In China V

    May 7, 2015

    For those that hate the frequent use of wire-fu (like me), you better look elsewhere as action choreography for this film relies heavily upon its use.

  • Run And Kill

    May 19, 2015

    The sheer energy and pacing of the film is undeniably invigorating and it is truly captivating to watch poor, unsuspecting Cheung fighting for his life.

  • Run Papa Run

    May 19, 2015

    ‘Run Papa Run’ is a story we may have seen before with style that may initially be jarring, yet is ultimately delivered with aplomb.

  • The Bodyguard From Beijing

    Feb 25, 2015

    ‘The Bodyguard From Beijing’ had the potential to be remembered as a classic action film, but Corey Yuen has failed miserably compared to his other wonderful classics.

  • The Diary Of A Big Man

    Mar 7, 2015

    ‘The Diary Of A Big Man’ is not ‘laugh-out-loud’ comedy, but is recommended to all Chow Yun-Fat fans as it contains enough elements to make it a highly entertaining film.

  • The Emperor And His Brother

    Mar 10, 2015

    Despite being made in the early 80s, the choreography lacks the invention and energy common to this era. This, for many viewers, may be the main problem that hinders ‘The Emperor And His Brother’.

  • The Flying Mr. B

    Mar 14, 2015

    With more cheese than a Mini Babybel factory, ‘The Flying Mr. B’ is about dated as Hong Kong comedy gets.

  • The Fortune Code

    Mar 14, 2015

    You’d expect a film with Sammo in would have something special in the action department, but even this is very average and certainly not up to his usual quality.

  • The Log

    Apr 13, 2015

    There’s no doubt then that ‘The Log’ has qualities that recommend it, though it never reaches the heights that Chiu’s admirers would demand.

  • Why Me?

    Jun 27, 2015

    Kent Cheng gives the best performance of his career in a role that always manages to avoid histrionics.
