• Big Bullet

    Feb 23, 2015

    Although the state of Hong Kong cinema is much approved now, it’s hard to forget the wretched state just a few years ago. ‘Big Bullet’ really stood out when it was released and remains a class act.

  • Black Mask

    Feb 23, 2015

    The action is still impressive, and deserves 4 stars, but the direction, annoying camera work and lack of real plot drag it down into the 3 star category.

  • C’est La Vie, Mon Cheri

    Feb 27, 2015

    These ingredients make ‘C’est La Vie, Mon Cheri’ a real treat to watch and create an enchanting ambience that draws the viewer in.

  • Call Of Heroes

    Dec 19, 2016

    Superbly paced, mounted and executed, one should simply sit back and enjoy this kung fu spectacle.

  • Crazy Hong Kong

    Mar 3, 2015

    Despite some effective chemistry between N!xau and Lau Ching-Wan in some scenes, this is a strictly low-priority film.

  • Driving Miss Wealthy

    Mar 9, 2015

    ‘Driving Miss Wealthy’ simply isn’t sharp enough or emotionally engaging enough to sustain the attention.

  • 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.

  • Fantasia

    Mar 10, 2015

    This, as you can tell from my gushing praise, is a film that has an obvious admiration and affection for the films that inspired it.

  • Full Alert

    Mar 15, 2015

    ‘Full Alert’ is more focused on crime and the effects of violence on the average man than it is on the dynamics of the police thriller.

  • Himalaya Singh

    Mar 25, 2015

    ‘Himalaya Singh’ is a depressing fusion of noise and colour that Hong Kong cinema can ill-afford to keep churning out.

  • La Brassiere

    Apr 4, 2015

    A zippy, expertly performed romantic comedy with an abundance of style and quality, ‘La Brassiere’ is a pleasant surprise.

  • Life Without Principle

    Apr 12, 2015

    This is the kind of stripped down thriller that Hong Kong can still do so well and proof that, while output has become a mere trickle, the quality is still there.
