• 72 Tenants Of Prosperity

    Jul 19, 2015

    With a welcome big screen appearance by Anita Yuen and an all-star rendition of Sam Hui’s beloved ’Private Eyes’ theme, this celebration of Hong Kong is an unpretentious distraction.

  • Accident

    Feb 16, 2015

    Weaving a tangled web, ‘Accident’ is actually elegant in its simplicity but by the film’s conclusion, whatever your thoughts are on the movie itself you are likely to be more cautious of crossing the road or getting out of a car.

  • All About Love

    Feb 16, 2015

    When the main story takes centre stage, the viewer’s interest is likely to be lost and the plot-holes difficult to reconcile.

  • Bad Blood

    Feb 20, 2015

    At times, the film will have you slipping into a catatonic state and you’ll just be praying for the next bit of action to come along.

  • Beauty On Duty!

    Feb 22, 2015

    The main problem with ‘Beauty On Duty’ is that it’s essentially a distillation of the legion of unfunny moments that Wong Jing has created throughout his long career.

  • Breaking News

    Feb 26, 2015

    ‘Breaking News’ is punctuated by tension-filled action set-pieces, but its main draw is the sharp characterisation and the insightful critique of the media that fills most of the running time.

  • 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.

  • Don’t Go Breaking My Heart

    Mar 8, 2015

    ‘Don’t Go Breaking My Heart’ is lightweight entertainment but never threatens to be even more, despite a few sweeping romantic theatrics

  • Drug War

    Mar 9, 2015

    Johnnie To charges out the gate with ‘Drug War’: a blitz of tension, style and almost unrelenting momentum.

  • Elixir Of Love

    Mar 10, 2015

    ‘Elixir Of Love’ passes the time adequately, but there’s little doubt that it fails to stretch Riley Yip’s creative excellence and doesn’t even rank as one of Miriam Yeung’s best.

  • Exiled

    Mar 10, 2015

    ‘Exiled’ is a riveting portrayal of a group of friends sticking by one another as their once chosen profession threatens to kill them all.

  • Fairy Tale Killer

    Mar 10, 2015

    ‘Fairy Tale Killer’ tries so hard to be an intelligent thriller that it forgets to be thrilling or exciting.

  • Fatal Contact

    Mar 11, 2015

    Like most martial arts movies to emerge out of Hong Kong in recent years, there are flashes of the talent involved but it’s not nearly as entertaining as it should have been.

  • Fatal Move

    Mar 11, 2015

    ‘Fatal Move’ is most certainly flawed and could have been a lot tighter and less meandering. Yet it still manages to be an entertaining slice of gangster action that entertains if never really ignites.

  • 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.

  • Fulltime Killer

    Mar 15, 2015

    It certainly doesn’t break new ground or quite manage to sit amongst the classics, but it’s a solid and stylish gunplay flick that delivers on a number of levels.

  • Happy Birthday

    Mar 22, 2015

    ‘Happy Birthday’ is a slickly packaged vehicle for its two stars, but utterly uninspiring at the very same time.

  • Help!!!

    Mar 23, 2015

    Not a Brunel intellectual challenge, this is a recommended satirical comedy, easy to enjoy and a feather in the cap of Johnnie To’s varied filmography.

  • Juliet In Love

    Apr 2, 2015

    ‘Juliet In Love’ could be well-described as a economic and perhaps minimal love story; there are no grand gestures or over-the-top histrionics.

  • Just One Look

    Apr 2, 2015

    Amusing (though never crude) and nostalgic (though never overly sentimental), Riley Yip’s gentle ‘coming-of-age’ comedy/drama earns a major recommendation.

  • Kung Fu Hustle

    Apr 4, 2015

    It is a brilliantly constructed spoof of the martial arts genre that includes all of the elements that made Chow such a success.

  • Kung Fu Master Is My Grandma!

    Apr 4, 2015

    In its own way it is quite a diverting drama that has its moments of chemistry between the two leads. It’s just unfortunate that the b-movie direction undermines the hard work of the cast.

  • 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.

  • Looking For Mister Perfect

    Apr 13, 2015

    ‘Looking For Mister Perfect’ is the kind of light and fluffy film that one would associate with Wong Jing or Joe Ma and not the man responsible for savage hits like ‘City On Fire’ and ‘Full Contact’.
