• A Simple Life

    May 26, 2015

    ‘A Simple Life’ is the perfect marriage of arthouse style and heart-rending substance.

  • All For The Winner

    Feb 17, 2015

    ‘All For The Winner’ is a fun all-round movie with a particularly pleasing performance from Stephen Chow.

  • All The Wrong Spies

    Feb 16, 2015

    Despite the weakness of its central performance, ‘All The Wrong Spies’ does incorporate the zest of the Cinema City films that dominated the early 80s.

  • Best Of The Best

    Feb 22, 2015

    Thanks to some solid acting, engaging characters and a little bit of gunplay action this isn’t a bad little romance-gone-bad/crime picture.

  • C’est La Vie, Mon Cheri

    Feb 27, 2015

    These ingredients make ‘C’est La Vie, Mon Cheri’ a real treat to watch and create an enchanting ambience that draws the viewer in.

  • China Strike Force

    Feb 28, 2015

    It’s worth watching, but will not go down as the best film that Hong Kong has produced in recent years – far from it in fact.

  • Dance Of Death

    Mar 5, 2015

    Chan’s choreography is the only minor highlight, but otherwise this is really only suitable for hardcore Angela Mao fans.

  • Don Quixote

    Mar 8, 2015

    Liu provides a more than acceptable ‘Don Quixote-lite’, a necessarily truncated interpretation that will hopefully inspire some to read the Cervantes masterpiece in full.

  • Echoes Of The Rainbow

    Mar 10, 2015

    ‘Echoes Of The Rainbow’ is full of the balancing act between cliché and skilled drama, complete with solid performances throughout.

  • Fight Back To School

    Mar 12, 2015

    ‘Fight Back To School’ is one of the finest films in the Stephen Chow back catalogue, and one of my favourite Hong Kong comedies of all time.

  • Fist Of Legend

    Mar 13, 2015

    In my opinion, this is Jet Li’s best work as he carries the film well, performing brilliantly in the films numerous fight sequences.

  • Front Page

    Mar 15, 2015

    Michael Hui uses moments of slapstick, social conscience and satire in conjunction with his flawless timing.

  • Heart Against Hearts

    Mar 23, 2015

    Not that ‘Heart Against Hearts’ doesn’t have its moments, but it certainly never develops the story beyond typical moments of Hong Kong farce.

  • Hong Kong 1941

    Mar 25, 2015

    ‘Hong Kong 1941’ is a powerful and moving study of the effects of war on the ordinary person and the strains of such pressure on any friendship.

  • I Love Maria

    Mar 27, 2015

    ‘I Love Maria’ offers a very good 100 minutes of entertainment for those who are looking for something new within Hong Kong cinema.

  • In The Line Of Duty III

    Mar 28, 2015

    Many of the fight sequences are powerful and realistic, and there is a good balance between cinematic choreography and outright simple bloodshed.

  • 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.

  • Justice, My Foot!

    Apr 2, 2015

    By the halfway mark of ‘Justice, My Foot’, most of the interest has disintegrated and the viewer ends up sitting their hoping for something special to happen.

  • Lost In Time

    Apr 14, 2015

    With characterisation so strongly emphasised in the film, it’s encouraging to see that both of the pivotal figures are empathetic enough to make Derek Yee’s goal successful.

  • Love On Delivery

    Apr 15, 2015

    This may not be his very best comedy, but it is definitely worthwhile and among his better efforts. Therefore this still has much to commend and is well worth watching.

  • Pantyhose Hero

    May 10, 2015

    There is not as much fighting as older Sammo films, but what is on show is up to his modern-day best – also showcasing Sammo’s last great physical performance.

  • Peking Opera Blues

    May 11, 2015

    The three female stars are simply flawless with each offering a different aspect to the film’s overall feel.

  • People’s Hero

    May 11, 2015

    In Derek Yee though, the film has an impressive craftsmen who layers the tension until the film’s ultimately downbeat conclusion.

  • Return To A Better Tomorrow

    Apr 5, 2017

    Despite the tantalising title, this flick has nothing to do with John Woo’s genre defining classics but is rather a cheap cash in from the relentless Wong Jing conveyor belt.
