• A Better Tomorrow

    Feb 23, 2015

    This is the ‘Citizen Kane’ of HK heroic bloodshed films and it never ages, even after repeat viewings.

  • A Better Tomorrow II

    Feb 23, 2015

    What this film lacks in plot, it sure as hell makes up for in action and the finale of ‘A Better Tomorrow II’ is a brutal display of guns, grenades and swordplay.

  • A Chinese Ghost Story

    Feb 28, 2015

    Any fan of wuxia films MUST see ‘A Chinese Ghost Story’. I can not give a higher recommendation for this veritable classic.

  • Aces Go Places V: The Terracotta Hit

    Feb 16, 2015

    The film boasts a truly stellar cast and good production values, but sadly the saga had run out of steam.

  • All’s Well, Ends Well

    Feb 17, 2015

    There’s still enjoyment to be had in this Hong Kong comedy though as long as the potential viewer is willing to forgive its various shortcomings.

  • Anna Magdalena

    Feb 18, 2015

    Director Hai Chung Man combines the conventions of commercial film-making with the subtlety of art-house cinema, but never loses the main heart of the film.

  • Ashes Of Time

    Feb 18, 2015

    A tapestry of emotion, audaciously flashing backwards and forwards and shifting voice-overs to piece together the moments that have led the characters to the barren wastes of the desert.

  • Fatal Love

    Mar 11, 2015

    Little bursts of bone jarring violence, especially the bloody conclusion, help raise the stakes to remind you that you’re not watching ‘Pretty Woman’.

  • Once A Thief

    May 6, 2015

    John Woo really surprised the audiences with this mixture of acrobatic gunplay action and comedy.

  • The Bride With White Hair

    Feb 26, 2015

    Yu’s extravagant use of colour and innovative camera techniques are extremely pleasing, but in no way make up for the lack of depth missing from the rest of the film.

  • The Chinese Feast

    Feb 28, 2015

    It’s no surprise that this Tsui Hark comedy was a box-office smash as it allows the viewer to enjoy superior character interaction and sharp comic routines.

  • The Eagle Shooting Heroes

    Mar 9, 2015

    ‘Carry on Wuxia’ it may be, but in execution and energy ‘The Eagle Shooting Heroes’ is the most polished in-joke ever made.

  • The Kid

    Apr 3, 2015

    ‘The Kid’ offers very little that’s new or different. Nonetheless it commands the attention with some earnest acting and straight-forward directing.
