• 72 Heroes

    Jul 19, 2015

    While Derek Chiu’s latest film is an acceptable blockbuster, the wit and style of the director’s earlier works is sadly fading away from him.

  • Cageman

    Feb 27, 2015

    Jacob Cheung’s celebrated drama is that magical juxtaposition of gritty social commentary and absorbing character study that many lesser directors aspire to replicate.

  • Call Of Heroes

    Dec 19, 2016

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

  • 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.

  • Fire Of Conscience

    Mar 13, 2015

    While the narrative and tone get a little muddled and the pace dips here and there, ‘Fire of Conscience’ is still a good tough-as-nails cop thriller with some brutal action.

  • Funeral March

    Mar 15, 2015

    By avoiding Hollywood histrionics or schmaltz, a well-worn plot again manages to seem fresh and deeply moving.

  • Horseplay

    Mar 26, 2015

    This is superior entertainment of a light and fluffy nature that somehow feels more sophisticated than anything out at the moment (even though it probably isn’t).

  • I Love Hong Kong

    Mar 27, 2015

    ‘I Love Hong Kong’ doesn’t steer too far away from the usual New Year hi-jinks – it is an entertaining 2011 release, but will probably not be remembered come 2012.

  • In The Line Of Duty IV

    Mar 28, 2015

    You really feel a lot of the hits in this film which is all in all, a hugely enjoyable action flick, jam-packed with trademark Woo Ping fight scenes, thankfully sans wires!

  • Ip Man: The Final Fight

    Mar 30, 2015

    Herman Yau’s conclusion to the story deserves its place among its contemporaries. And any film with Anthony Wong giving his all is well worth adding to your collection.

  • It’s A Drink, It’s A Bomb

    Mar 30, 2015

    ‘It’s A Drink, It’s A Bomb’ is far less interested in developing a logical plot and far more devoted to the increasingly bizarre situations our protagonists find themselves in.

  • Lady Cop & Papa Crook

    Apr 5, 2015

    Interest is created in ‘Lady Cop & Papa Crook’ by its style and verve, yet the story and characters are successful in doing the opposite.

  • Protege

    May 16, 2015

    A gripping and often uncompromising look at the Hong Kong drug trade from the seller’s and user’s side, Derek Yee’s ‘Protege’ is one of the finest dramas to come out of Hong Kong in recent years.

  • Shock Wave

    Nov 20, 2017

    ‘Shock Wave’ is an above average Andy Lau action film that shows that the star can still be called on to play the tough hero when needed.

  • SPL

    Jun 1, 2015

    A first class cop thriller, that despite it’s flaws and over dramatics is riveting viewing and shows Wilson Yip is one of the best directors working in Hong Kong at the minute.

  • The Beast Stalker

    Feb 21, 2015

    Not just one of the best thrillers to emerge from Hong Kong in a good few years, but also as good as many that have been released throughout Asia over the artistically-rich 21st century.

  • The Sniper

    May 28, 2015

    If you like slick, glossy action flicks with lots of pretty boys posing, then ‘The Sniper’ is right up your street.

  • The Viral Factor

    Jun 22, 2015

    Lam certainly throws a lot in and the tone does vary but thanks to the confident staging and the unrelenting momentum it all works for the most part.

  • The Way We Were

    Jun 25, 2015

    ‘The Way We Were’ just doesn’t know what its heritage is and squanders a good concept for needless in-jokes while Liu Kai-Chi deserves a much stronger vehicle and Fiona Sit is woefully underused.

  • The World Of Treasure

    Jun 28, 2015

    ‘The World Of Treasure’ notches up the odd moment of entertainment during its course and arouses sporadic interest. However, as a Michael Hui film, or even a general Hong Kong comedy it is found wanting.

  • Weeds On Fire

    Nov 6, 2017

    More than workmanlike though never content with just being another sports film, ‘Weeds On Fire’ is an encouraging sign of life in Hong Kong cinema.
