• 97 Aces Go Places

    Jul 19, 2015

    Even though I was eager to like the film and the trailer helped make this seem a possibility, this is a major disappointment – even for the most forgiving fans of the Samuel Hui/Karl Maka classic.

  • Carry On Pickpocket

    Feb 28, 2015

    Starts out as a fairly happy-go-lucky comedy but eventually culminates in an all action finale that is surprisingly violent for a film of this ilk.

  • Deadful Melody

    Mar 5, 2015

    If you like your early 90s wuxia flicks full of excessive theatrical action and characters then ‘Deadful Melody’ is a lot of fun.

  • Death Duel Of Kung Fu

    Mar 6, 2015

    Thankfully, you’re never too far away from a spot of fisticuffs, which is a very good thing because you’re not likely to gain much enjoyment from any other part of this film.

  • Eastern Condors

    Mar 10, 2015

    ‘Eastern Condors’ is a mind blowing mix of kung fu and wartime combat that will have you hooked from start to finish.

  • Encounter Of The Spooky Kind

    Mar 10, 2015

    Martial arts, magic and bizarre creatures are blended together seamlessly, with expert direction.

  • Fong Sai Yuk

    Mar 14, 2015

    ‘Fong Sai Yuk’ may not be the best kung fu film ever made, but it doesn’t disappoint and is highly recommended viewing.

  • Fong Sai Yuk II

    Mar 14, 2015

    This is definitely an entertaining film that is worth catching. There is, though, the constant nagging feeling that this film could have been better.

  • God Of Gamblers III: Back To Shanghai

    Mar 20, 2015

    Just when you thought the ‘God Of Gamblers’ series was dead and buried, Wong Jing somehow manages to find a pretty nifty way of bringing it back.

  • Hocus Pocus

    Mar 25, 2015

    This is one for die-hard fans of Lam Ching Ying or the Chinese comedy horror genre in general.

  • Knockabout

    Apr 4, 2015

    The action is simply electric, most notably the two-against-one finale that pits Sammo and Yuen against Liu Chia Yung.

  • Millionaires’ Express

    Apr 23, 2015

    Newcomers will enjoy the fight action, the slightly more experienced will also appreciate the comedy and the veteran viewer will be entertained by the great cast.

  • Mr. Boo Meets Pom Pom

    May 1, 2015

    Although there is a great deal of potential within the casting, ‘Mr.Boo Meets Pom Pom’ is certainly the weakest of the Pom Pom quartet.

  • Odd Couple

    May 5, 2015

    Anyone searching for a traditional kung-fu flick that is filled with sublime choreography need look no further than this.

  • Pom Pom

    May 14, 2015

    ‘Pom Pom’ is a typically enjoyable 80’s Hong Kong comedy that will definitely strike a chord with fans of the ‘Lucky Stars’.

  • Proud And Confident

    May 16, 2015

    It’s undeniably rough around the edges, but in its favour it has a solid cast and some good interaction between the characters – certainly worth an evenings viewing.

  • Snake Deadly Act

    May 28, 2015

    ‘Snake Deadly Act’ is a typical example of a good, but not great independent kung fu flick.

  • Snake In The Eagle’s Shadow

    May 28, 2015

    ‘Snake In The Eagle’s Shadow’ gave Jackie his first chance to shine outside the reigns of Lo Wei, and under the expert guidance of Woo Ping and Ng See Yuen delivers a classic of the genre.

  • The 36th Chamber Of Shaolin

    Jul 3, 2015

    Liu Chia Liang’s ‘The 36th Chamber Of Shaolin’ is an important cinematic moment and remains influential not just in Hong Kong film-making, but also globally.

  • The Avenging Eagle

    Feb 19, 2015

    This is a kung-fu film with enough substance and genuine quality to please even the most demanding or cynical movie fan – an assured recommendation.

  • The Buddhist Fist

    Feb 27, 2015

    Unfortunately, for veterans of old-school flicks, the choreography on display here is nothing new, and a lot of it takes place in the dark, which makes it less than easy to follow.

  • The Legendary Strike

    Apr 11, 2015

    Although there’s the odd hole or inconsistency, the production mostly runs at a sustained pace that draws the viewer along with it.

  • The Prodigal Son

    May 16, 2015

    This film is a true classic, outdoing other period pieces ‘Drunken Master’ and ‘Once Upon a Time in China’. Go get it!

  • The Victim

    Jun 21, 2015

    ‘The Victim’ is a fine mixture of action comedy and even drama – three elements that director Sammo Hung juggles with masterful dexterity.
