• 72 Tenants Of Prosperity

    Jul 19, 2015

    With a welcome big screen appearance by Anita Yuen and an all-star rendition of Sam Hui’s beloved ’Private Eyes’ theme, this celebration of Hong Kong is an unpretentious distraction.

  • b420

    Feb 20, 2015

    ‘b420’ moves from a potentially arresting low-key beginning to a middle section that throws together predictable sub-plots, then Matthew Tang switches to a thriller for the final twenty minutes.

  • Beast Cops

    Feb 21, 2015

    ‘Beast Cops’ is a powerfully shot and highly entertaining movie that raises some important issues regarding today’s society, which really need to be addressed.

  • Coweb

    Mar 3, 2015

    While Jiang Lu-Xia is definitely a talent for the future the film itself barely seems to register on the excitement scale.

  • Crazy N’ The City

    Mar 3, 2015

    Full of humanity and interest, it remarkably manages to takes three or four strong sub-plots and amalgamate them together without letting any of them suffer.

  • Dragon Loaded 2: Dragon Reloaded

    Mar 8, 2015

    ‘Dragon Loaded 2’ is so full of eccentrics and typical Hong Kong stereotypes that Cheng’s brand of humour has very little to play off.

  • Dragon Loaded 2003

    Mar 8, 2015

    ‘Dragon Loaded 2003’ is a typical Hong Kong comedy with a little injection of romance, but never rises above the ordinary.

  • Final Romance

    Mar 13, 2015

    Mak paces the narrative in a very delicate way, choosing to build the romance between his leads rather than just rely on ‘big scenes’ to do the work for him.

  • Fist Power

    Mar 13, 2015

    ‘Fist Power’ is a very thin framework onto which a few interesting action scenes are hung and should not be treated as a classic of the genre.

  • Gen-Y Cops

    Mar 16, 2015

    For all the plot holes and script deficiencies, this is an excellent slice of Hong Kong entertainment with a return to the edict of fun film-making that made the 80’s stand out.

  • 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.

  • Just One Look

    Apr 2, 2015

    Amusing (though never crude) and nostalgic (though never overly sentimental), Riley Yip’s gentle ‘coming-of-age’ comedy/drama earns a major recommendation.

  • Man Of Tai Chi

    Apr 20, 2015

    Keanu Reeves makes an assured directorial debut and an all round great fight film with the rather impressive ‘Man of Tai Chi’.

  • No Problem 2

    May 4, 2015

    There may not be much here that we haven’t seen before, but it’s certainly been a while since we’ve seen most of it done so well.

  • Osaka Wrestling Restaurant

    May 10, 2015

    For anyone who wants something a bit different from Hong Kong’s blockbusters, this may be a worthwhile purchase. Be warned, though, that ‘Osaka Wrestling Restaurant’ is not going to be to everyone’s taste.

  • Skyline Cruisers

    May 27, 2015

    The opening does promise a fun and breezy film before it gets bogged down in confusion, but there are moments that keep the viewer watching.

  • Super Model

    Jun 4, 2015

    ‘Super Model’ is, for the majority, a superior comedy that bursts forth with copious amounts of energy and imagination.

  • The Constable

    Mar 2, 2015

    Thankfully this low-budget Hong Kong drama has enough going for it to sidestep its lazier moments.

  • True Love

    Jun 17, 2015

    Despite the clichés, ‘True Love’ still retains a strong entertainment value though. The ending is also powerful enough to make sure that it is not easily forgotten.

  • Twins Mission

    Jun 19, 2015

    ‘Twins Mission’ is a messy affair with a few bright spots to help the 90 minute running time ease past.

  • Visible Secret

    Jun 22, 2015

    Indebted to ‘The Sixth Sense’ it may be, but ‘Visible Secret’ eschews the surreal shocks of current Japanese and Korean horror cinema.

  • When I Look Upon The Stars

    Jun 26, 2015

    ‘When I Look Upon The Stars’ is mercilessly padded in many areas and there are constant moments when the narrative almost grinds to a halt.
