• 2 Become 1

    Jul 2, 2015

    Full of negative characterisation, sloppily handled sentiment and rudderless direction, this is a film that drags along like the walking dead and manages to smother its noble intentions with complete indecision.

  • A Beautiful New World

    Feb 22, 2015

    Shi Runjiu’s film is a modest production with flaws in certain key areas, but remains a genuinely interesting film.

  • Accident

    Feb 16, 2015

    Weaving a tangled web, ‘Accident’ is actually elegant in its simplicity but by the film’s conclusion, whatever your thoughts are on the movie itself you are likely to be more cautious of crossing the road or getting out of a car.

  • Breaking News

    Feb 26, 2015

    ‘Breaking News’ is punctuated by tension-filled action set-pieces, but its main draw is the sharp characterisation and the insightful critique of the media that fills most of the running time.

  • Elixir Of Love

    Mar 10, 2015

    ‘Elixir Of Love’ passes the time adequately, but there’s little doubt that it fails to stretch Riley Yip’s creative excellence and doesn’t even rank as one of Miriam Yeung’s best.

  • Exiled

    Mar 10, 2015

    ‘Exiled’ is a riveting portrayal of a group of friends sticking by one another as their once chosen profession threatens to kill them all.

  • 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.

  • Fly Me To Polaris

    Mar 14, 2015

    ‘Fly Me To Polaris’ makes no excuses for its obvious emotional machinations and a storyline clearly designed to tug at the heart-strings.

  • Gorgeous

    Mar 21, 2015

    While there are flashes of his trademark fight scenes, it’s the fairy tale love story that always takes precedence.

  • Happy Birthday

    Mar 22, 2015

    ‘Happy Birthday’ is a slickly packaged vehicle for its two stars, but utterly uninspiring at the very same time.

  • 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.

  • Legendary Amazons

    Apr 6, 2015

    As a pure piece of pulp entertainment, ‘Legendary Amazons’ is a hoot. Nevertheless, there is always the feeling at the back of your mind that a story as famous as this deserves much better handling.

  • Life Express

    Apr 12, 2015

    ‘Life Express’ is far more moving than should be expected – it certainly has a deeper air of poignancy than the average episode of any medical drama.

  • Life Without Principle

    Apr 12, 2015

    This is the kind of stripped down thriller that Hong Kong can still do so well and proof that, while output has become a mere trickle, the quality is still there.

  • Marry A Rich Man

    Apr 20, 2015

    ‘Marry A Rich Man’ is a rom-com film that commits the cardinal crime of not being very romantic.

  • Seoul Raiders

    May 22, 2015

    ‘Seoul Raiders’ is not only a disappointment in comparison to ‘Tokyo Raiders’, but also a worrying reminder of the recent lack of sparkle in Hong Kong action cinema.

  • Silver Hawk

    May 26, 2015

    Though there’s far less of the ghastly CGI that marred ‘The Touch’, ‘Silver Hawk’ still continues to remind the viewer of the chasm between the choreography of the 80s/early90s and today.

  • Summer Holiday

    Jun 3, 2015

    While ‘Summer Holiday’ has no major weaknesses, it is a traditionally clichéd romantic comedy that doesn’t attempt to throw anything more challenging into the blend.

  • 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.
