• Ambitious Kung Fu Girl

    Feb 17, 2015

    It is a diverting 90 minutes with a few well constructed scenes scattered throughout, but this hardly compensates for its waste of potential.

  • 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.

  • Death Duel

    Mar 6, 2015

    ‘Death Duel’ is a bleak, nihilistic swordplay film that embodies all of the qualities that one expects from a Chor Yuen adaptation of a Gu Long story.

  • Five Superfighters

    Mar 14, 2015

    The generally undemanding nature of the film make this a definite thumbs up for genre-lovers.

  • Flag Of Iron

    Mar 14, 2015

    ‘Flag Of Iron’ is a good film in nearly all of its departments and therefore earns a strong recommendation.

  • Heroes Shed No Tears

    Mar 24, 2015

    ‘Heroes Shed No Tears’ is the kind of complex swordplay film that was attempted after the demise of the Shaw Brothers movie making empire, but often lacked the skilled control that Chor Yuen offered.

  • Hong Kong Playboys

    Mar 25, 2015

    This is not a comic masterpiece and doesn’t amuse in quite the manner that it imagines it does, but with a leading man of Fu Sheng’s calibre this is almost to be forgiven.

  • Mad Monkey Kung Fu

    Apr 18, 2015

    ‘Mad Monkey Kung Fu’ features an excellent cast, first-rate action, an absorbing plot and a powerful soundtrack – more than enough reasons to recommend this to any true film fan.

  • Men From The Monastery

    Apr 22, 2015

    Chang Cheh delivers a multi-layered kung-fu drama that is ripe with excellent characterisation and well-choreographed action.

  • Monkey Kung Fu

    Apr 30, 2015

    The bottom line is that ‘Monkey Kung Fu’ is a highly recommended gem with a cast that doesn’t feature the genres big names, but still outshines many better known films.

  • New Tales Of The Flying Fox

    May 4, 2015

    This is a rollicking action-adventure that is packed with top kung fu entertainment but because of a lack of depth misses out on a higher grade.

  • The Boxer From The Temple

    Feb 25, 2015

    Law Ma has crafted an ensemble kung-fu comedy that has a good number of intricately constructed showdowns and a few moments that manage true pathos rather than tacked on emotion.

  • The Call-Girls

    Oct 19, 2017

    It entertains, titillates and amuses, as well as throws in a hint of social commentary as afterthought, but it’s a giddy, gaudy way to spend some time, providing of course that the subject matter itself doesn’t offend one’s sensibilities to begin with.

  • The Duel Of The Century

    Mar 9, 2015

    Lau Wing may not be an accomplished screen fighter, but it is his portrayal of Lu Xiaofeng that earns this a moderate rating that it otherwise would not deserve.

  • The Green Hornet

    Mar 21, 2015

    Anyone hoping for an exciting big-budget version of the well-known character will be sorely disappointed by this merely functional cinematic rendition.

  • The Master

    Jul 3, 2015

    Though containing enough reasons to warrant a viewing, ‘The Master’ is still not as polished as the better films being made by the studio at the time.

  • Tiger On The Beat

    Jun 14, 2015

    ‘Tiger On The Beat’ is a surprisingly successful outing that proves Liu Chia-Liang was just as capable of handling modern day actioners.

  • Treasure Hunters

    Jun 16, 2015

    ‘Treasure Hunters’ never has a dull moment and from the opening credits to the very last kicks of the finale this is a top-notch Shaw Brothers’ film.

  • Winner Takes All

    Jun 27, 2015

    Unfortunately, just as you find yourself warming to his style, Wong Jing falls prey to the failings that would long be associated with him.
