• Born Invincible

    Feb 25, 2015

    ‘Born Invincible’ contains what many consider to be Carter Wong’s strongest performance; playing the crazed Chi Kung master, Wong enjoys every minute of his scenery chewing role.

  • Clan Of The White Lotus

    Mar 13, 2015

    Another awesome Shaw Brothers film with an insane concept and some heavenly fight action choreographed by the one and only Liu Chia-Liang.

  • Crazy Shaolin Disciples

    Mar 3, 2015

    While ‘Crazy Shaolin Disciples’ does have a few merits, I’d have to say that there is far better available elsewhere.

  • Death Duel

    Mar 6, 2015

    ‘Death Duel’ is a bleak, nihilistic swordplay film that embodies all of the qualities that one expects from a Chor Yuen adaptation of a Gu Long story.

  • Dirty Ho

    Mar 7, 2015

    This splendid period kung-fu film once again gives evidence of the immense quality that rolled out of the Shaw Brothers studios during the 70’s.

  • 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.

  • Fatal Needles Vs. Fatal Fists

    Mar 11, 2015

    ‘Fatal Needles Vs. Fatal Fists’ is not a work of Kurosawan proportions, but it’s certainly better than there’s any reason to expect.

  • Fist Of Fury II

    Mar 13, 2015

    Although still quite a way off classic standards, ‘Fist Of Fury II’ just goes to show that it is possible to make a “Bruceploitation” flick that is fun to watch.

  • Glass Tears

    Mar 17, 2015

    While ‘Glass Tears’ is a solid debut for Carol Lai, it has a few signs of directorial immaturity within it.

  • Heaven Sword And Dragon Sabre

    Mar 23, 2015

    The director has taken complicated source material and distilled it into something arresting before, but here he finds too many sub-plots to balance and too many characters to accommodate.

  • How To Choose A Royal Bride

    Mar 26, 2015

    Some may not like ‘How To Choose A Royal Bride’ because of the episodic nature of the story but this is some fun if rather slight entertainment.

  • In The Line Of Duty V: Middle Man

    Mar 28, 2015

    The plot is all over the place and covers all areas mentioned in my opening paragraph, but as ever, it is only there to give people a reason to fight.

  • Kung Fu From Beyond The Grave

    Apr 4, 2015

    In the end, ‘Kung Fu From Beyond The Grave’ is decent entertainment – mainly due to the fights – but lacks the campy charm needed to make it a strong recommendation.

  • Mad Monkey Kung Fu

    Apr 18, 2015

    ‘Mad Monkey Kung Fu’ features an excellent cast, first-rate action, an absorbing plot and a powerful soundtrack – more than enough reasons to recommend this to any true film fan.

  • 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!

  • On The Run

    May 6, 2015

    ‘On The Run’ is a superb effort from Biao and a welcome change of pace for an actor who is so often seen as just the “little brother” of Jackie Chan and Sammo Hung.

  • One Armed Swordsman Against Nine Killers

    May 9, 2015

    A few moments of Wang Yu madness creep into the film to enliven things, but this is mostly a hard slog to get through.

  • Perils Of The Sentimental Swordsman

    May 11, 2015

    The real draw, and the skill of Chor Yuen, is to make an ensemble of eccentrics, oddball antagonists and superheroes appealing and a means of covering up the unapologetic holes in the narrative.

  • Police Story 3: Supercop

    May 12, 2015

    This is another great slice of entertainment JC style, and was one of his best performances before his physical shape noticeably began to deteriorate in the mid-90’s.

  • Return Of The Sentimental Swordsman

    May 17, 2015

    There’s therefore much to recommend this superior sequel, a film that takes the best elements of the original and invites viewers to contemplate a message beyond the common expectations of the genre.

  • Seven Warriors

    May 22, 2015

    ‘Seven Warriors’ does not compare to the flawless epic that inspired it, but it’s encouraging to report that this is well worth watching.

  • Shanghai Shanghai

    May 23, 2015

    If you’re a fan of Biao or Sammo, this will make an unremarkable, but enjoyable addition to your collection; if you’re indifferent to either, the chances are you will feel the same about this film.

  • Shaolin Hand Lock

    May 23, 2015

    It boasts some top notch fight scenes which are further enhanced by another standout performance from the late great Lo Lieh.

  • Temple Of The Red Lotus

    Jun 9, 2015

    At the end of the day, ‘Temple Of The Red Lotus’ works as more of a historical artefact than a genuinely exciting swordplay feature.
