• A Chinese Tall Story

    Feb 28, 2015

    Lau’s modern interpretation is an extremely wild one that is often mind blowing in its visuals, but in truth it’s the heart warming love story that prevails and makes the film a very entertaining one.

  • A Man Called Hero

    Apr 20, 2015

    Andrew Lau has a very obvious formula for making comic book adaptations and it’s one that is ultimately not very satisfying.

  • Bodyguards And Assassins

    Feb 25, 2015

    Overall it’s a wonderful film, a blockbuster people call it, and maybe it is, but really for us Asian movie fans this is what it’s all about – a hard hitting, hard punching film with a heart of gold and a fist of iron.

  • Cook Up A Storm

    Jul 15, 2017

    The varied cast which includes Tse, Ge You and CN Blue member Jung Yong-Hwa make it an appealing 90 minutes of over-the-top cook-offs, snappy comedy and melodrama.

  • Dragon Tiger Gate

    Mar 9, 2015

    Don’t compare it to Yen and Yip’s ‘SPL’ or ‘Flashpoint’, just sit back and enjoy a good old fashioned comic book blockbuster with heaps of kung fu action.

  • From Vegas To Macau

    Mar 15, 2015

    It’s best viewed as an occasionally enjoyable diversion that, on sporadic occasions, hints at how good a reboot of one of the 80s most iconic film series could be.

  • Hot Summer Days

    Mar 26, 2015

    ‘Hot Summer Days’ manages the feat that so many productions using multiple stories flatly fail with, namely making each of the plot strands interesting rather than just using a few as killers and the rest as fillers.

  • Invisible Target

    Mar 30, 2015

    Hard hitting action reminiscent of old school Hong Kong actioners, solid performances and sleek direction makes ‘Invisible Target’ one of the years best action flicks.

  • McDull, The Alumni

    Apr 22, 2015

    Samson Chiu can be congratulated for taking a bold step in a new direction while still retaining much of the gentle punch that is associated with the brand.

  • My School Mate, The Barbarian

    May 3, 2015

    ‘My School Mate, the Barbarian’ is an unusual film that centres on a world of youths that rarely touches that of the adult realm. If the viewer can get used to this, they should enjoy the rest of the duration.

  • New Police Story

    May 4, 2015

    The performances from all parties are excellent, and Jackie has reinstalled a little faith in me that he is still capable of making a good action movie.

  • Shaolin

    May 23, 2015

    The dramatic framework is sturdy enough to make ‘Shaolin’ emotionally engaging, while the Yuen Kwai-orchestrated action is a delightful throwback to the Golden Age.

  • 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 Promise

    May 16, 2015

    It will lose most of it’s audience by the 20 minute mark and even those that do manage to stay engaged past that point will likely be sleeping by the time our heroes ‘Fly away into the sunset’.

    Jun 1, 2015

    As the style inevitably overpowers the substance, the facade of a plot begins to break apart and the husk of a film is left.

  • 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.

  • Treasure Inn

    Jun 16, 2015

    It has a fairly optimistic aim of being a comedy ‘Detective Dee’ and while it might not quite achieve a happy union between its components this is an undemanding distraction.
