• Demon Of The Lute

    Mar 6, 2015

    Mainstream Hong Kong cinema has often embraced the bizarre and the baffling, but ‘Demon Of The Lute’ may be a step too far for many.

  • Dirty Tiger, Crazy Frog

    Mar 7, 2015

    ‘Dirty Tiger, Crazy Frog’ doesn’t compare to Sammo’s classics, but it’s diverting enough to persuade genre fans to catch it.

  • Disciples Of The 36th Chamber

    Mar 8, 2015

    ‘Disciples Of The 36th Chamber’ is a quality film; from the choreography to Liu Chia-Liang’s artistically composed frames, this is a more sophisticated kung fu film.

  • Executioners From Shaolin

    Mar 10, 2015

    This masterful kung-fu drama shows how quickly Liang found his own way of conveying his thoughts to the audience.

  • Front Page

    Mar 15, 2015

    Michael Hui uses moments of slapstick, social conscience and satire in conjunction with his flawless timing.

  • Game Of Death II

    Mar 16, 2015

    Possibly not for the Bruce Lee purists, but a fantastic old-school flick, which is, another must have.

  • He Has Nothing But Kung Fu

    Mar 23, 2015

    This provides solid viewing for fans while the veterans will no doubt enjoy spotting the endless array of familiar faces in the background.

  • Knockabout

    Apr 4, 2015

    The action is simply electric, most notably the two-against-one finale that pits Sammo and Yuen against Liu Chia Yung.

  • Legend Of The Dragon

    Apr 6, 2015

    ‘Legend Of The Dragon’ is a very entertaining parody of Bruce Lee movies that is packed full of Stephen Chow comedy gold.

  • Magnificent Butcher

    Apr 19, 2015

    This film could be recommended alone for it’s exceptional fight action, but as you’d expect from this cast there’s much more on offer.

  • Miracles

    Apr 24, 2015

    Jackie openly admits that this film was intended to answer the critics who saw him as just an action star/director. What an answer it proved to be!

  • Money Crazy

    Apr 25, 2015

    Though it’s not in the same league as the Michael Hui hits it tries to emulate, ‘Money Crazy’ is still reasonably entertaining and certainly better than Woo’s other ventures into the genre.

  • Odd Couple

    May 5, 2015

    Anyone searching for a traditional kung-fu flick that is filled with sublime choreography need look no further than this.

  • Opium And The Kung Fu Master

    May 9, 2015

    ‘Opium and the Kung Fu Master’ is top-notch old school action but it can’t quite get away from some things that used to mar such films.

  • Project A

    May 16, 2015

    Using the conventions of the 30’s Hollywood swashbucklers mixed with his insane stunts and sublime fight action, Chan produced one of his best ever films.

  • Project A Part II

    May 16, 2015

    It was impossible to match the original classic, but Chan pulled out all of the stops to make sure he gave it his best.

  • Security Unlimited

    May 22, 2015

    Far more subtle than Chow Sing Chi, but certainly as funny, ‘Security Unlimited’ is an excellent introduction to the world of the Hui brothers.

  • Shaolin Intruders

    May 23, 2015

    ‘Shaolin Intruders’ doesn’t offer any of the genre-defining moments that leap out of the true masterpieces of the genre.

  • Shaolin Mantis

    May 23, 2015

    Although ‘Shaolin Mantis’ is a well made and above average, it undoubtedly disappoints when compared with Liu Chia-Liang’s best work.

  • Shatter

    May 24, 2015

    If you like seventies cheese then you might want to pick this one up. Otherwise it’s probably best to avoid unless you happen to be a hardcore Shaw Brothers or Ti Lung fan.

  • Swordsman And Enchantress

    Jun 6, 2015

    While I normally find myself quite happy to suspend disbelief for a Gu Long/Chor Yuen collaboration, ‘Swordsman And Enchantress’ is a real test of my patience.

  • The 36th Chamber Of Shaolin

    Jul 3, 2015

    Liu Chia Liang’s ‘The 36th Chamber Of Shaolin’ is an important cinematic moment and remains influential not just in Hong Kong film-making, but also globally.

  • The Buddhist Fist

    Feb 27, 2015

    Unfortunately, for veterans of old-school flicks, the choreography on display here is nothing new, and a lot of it takes place in the dark, which makes it less than easy to follow.

  • The Gold Hunters

    Mar 19, 2015

    When the story steps up a gear and begins to blend in various antagonists, ‘The Gold Hunters’ becomes a joy to behold.
