• 14 Blades

    Jul 2, 2015

    It has numerous nods to the Shaw Brothers classics and harks back to those swordplay flicks of yesteryear, making you smile, cry, jump for joy and shout like a banshee, like any good martial arts film should.

  • A Touch Of Zen

    Jun 15, 2015

    It is a film that deserves to be watched by fans of all genres though and, alongside classics like ‘Come Drink With Me’, acts as a perfect portfolio for the late, great King Hu.

  • By Hook Or By Crook

    Feb 27, 2015

    Hung and Wu Ma still manage to keep the film interesting with their charming on-screen personas and some noteworthy kung fu routines.

  • 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.

  • Choy Lee Fut

    Feb 28, 2015

    Even the action becomes monotonous by the time the tournament begins and there’s probably as much genuine Choy Lee Fut on display as there was in ‘Pretty Woman’.

  • Daddy, Father And Papa

    Mar 4, 2015

    Clifton Ko prefers to fill the film with dubious comedy and ‘Home Alone’-style action – certainly no compensation for even a few seconds of Sammo’s genius.

  • Dirty Tiger, Crazy Frog

    Mar 7, 2015

    ‘Dirty Tiger, Crazy Frog’ doesn’t compare to Sammo’s classics, but it’s diverting enough to persuade genre fans to catch it.

  • Don’t Give A Damn

    Mar 8, 2015

    ‘Don’t Give A Damn’ provides some good action and a distracting 100 minutes, but don’t expect another Sammo masterpiece.

  • Dragon Squad

    Mar 9, 2015

    Even though it is littered with flaws, I feel I can’t give ‘Dragon Squad’ the complete thumbs down as it is one of those films that could easily pass for a guilty pleasure.

  • Dragons Forever

    Mar 9, 2015

    Chan and Hung continue to substantiate their legendary status in the cinematic hall of fame, but it is Yuen Biao who really steals the 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.

  • Eight Taels Of Gold

    Mar 10, 2015

    ‘Eight Taels Of Gold’ rewards those not looking for emotional fireworks or melodramatic denouements.

  • Encounter Of The Spooky Kind

    Mar 10, 2015

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

  • Enter The Fat Dragon

    Mar 10, 2015

    ‘Enter the Fat Dragon’ is a warm homage to the man who popularised martial arts cinema around the world.

  • Fatal Move

    Mar 11, 2015

    ‘Fatal Move’ is most certainly flawed and could have been a lot tighter and less meandering. Yet it still manages to be an entertaining slice of gangster action that entertains if never really ignites.

  • Flying Dragon, Leaping Tiger

    Mar 14, 2015

    What Lan has given audiences is a hark back to the new-wave boom of the early-90s that, while never setting the screen alight, is mostly entertaining.

  • Game Of Death

    Mar 16, 2015

    The brief scenes that actually feature Lee’s original ‘Game Of Death’ footage only help to condemn the rest of this shambolic mess.

  • Hand Of Death

    Mar 22, 2015

    Although not a masterpiece, ‘Hand Of Death’ is a good example of how quality quickly shines through and stands out in a crowded genre.

  • Hapkido

    Mar 22, 2015

    A simple storyline that is backed up by an ample supply of martial arts sequences; this is a film that makes no bones about being a showcase for the impressive fighting skills of its lead actors.

  • Heart Of Dragon

    Mar 23, 2015

    If you prefer to see Jackie in films like ‘Shanghai Noon’ and ‘Rush Hour’ then this may not be for you, but if you want to see an alternative to his stereotyped bumbling hero then it will certainly deliver.

  • Iron Fisted Monk

    Mar 30, 2015

    Any Sammo Hung fan would love this film, as would anyone who enjoys old-school martial arts flicks.

  • Island Of Fire

    Mar 30, 2015

    For a low budget, rushed production, the emotional content of the film and the quality of its cast save the day providing us with a kung fu influenced ‘Shawshank Redemption’ wannabe.

  • 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.

  • Kung Fu Cult Master

    Apr 4, 2015

    The pairing of Jet Li and Sammo should have spawned a masterpiece, but instead the audience is left with this disheartening effort.
