• 1911

    Jul 2, 2015

    One of the better mainland films of recent years and probably the best of the ones that focus on the revolution.

  • 1911

    Jul 2, 2015

    Yet another good looking Chinese epic that tries to cram way too much historical happenings into a somewhat brief running time but is still an okay stab by Chan to tackle “serious” filmmaking once again.

  • A World Without Thieves

    Jun 28, 2015

    This is a lustrous production that flatters to deceive, aiming for the intellect, but eventually preferring to show empty spectacle and supposed depth.

  • Detective Dee And The Mystery Of The Phantom Flame

    Mar 7, 2015

    Impressive production values, an excellent cast and a few moments of genuine inspiration (courtesy of Sammo Hung’s action choreography) make the minutes fly be.

    Even though it is littered with flaws, I feel I can’t give ‘Dragon Squad’ the complete thumbs down as it is one of those films that could easily pass for a guilty pleasure.

  • Love For All Seasons

    Apr 15, 2015

    The concept may take a little getting used to, but ‘Love For All Seasons’ is a superior vehicle for Sammi Cheng and an enjoyable mixture of zany plot twists, comedy and romance.

  • The Forbidden Kingdom

    Mar 14, 2015

    Very 1980s in its tone, a factor which adds to a lot of the fun, ‘The Forbidden Kingdom’, is flashy and harmless and shows the two Hong Kong stars still have charisma to burn.

  • Wait ‘Til You’re Older

    Jun 22, 2015

    ‘Wait ‘Til You’re Older’ is commercial film-making at its most polished, yet contains a few brave decisions by director Teddy Chen.
