• 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.

  • Dragon Tiger Gate

    Mar 9, 2015

    Don’t compare it to Yen and Yip’s ‘SPL’ or ‘Flashpoint’, just sit back and enjoy a good old fashioned comic book blockbuster with heaps of kung fu action.

  • From Vegas To Macau II

    Sep 17, 2016

    ‘From Vegas To Macau II’ gets very mild commendation for a few nods to past glories and the occasional joke that doesn’t feel like waterboarding.

  • From Vegas To Macau III

    Oct 5, 2016

    Packed with the deluge of banality and popular references that will doubtlessly age the film well before it’s time, this third part is every bit as frustrating and lazy as the one that came before it.

  • I Come With The Rain

    Mar 27, 2015

    While it doesn’t completely succeed in its intentions it is still a brave, and very dark, experimental thriller recommended to the less judgemental out there.

  • Infernal Affairs

    Mar 31, 2015

    The film has one of the best stories I’ve seen in quite a while and the cast and crew all produce some of their finest work to date.

  • Initial D

    Mar 29, 2015

    The linear narrative and lack of real danger in the story may limit what would otherwise be a sure-fire hit.

  • 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.

  • Jiang Hu

    Apr 1, 2015

    Clocking in at around the 80 minute mark, ‘Jiang Hu’ is short and snappy, delving into a a specific moment in the characters lives making it neither overly complex or lacking in substance.

  • 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.

  • Legend Of The Fist: The Return Of Chen Zhen

    Apr 6, 2015

    ‘Legend Of The Fist’ is a film that promises so much but delivers far less, especially considering this is a collaboration between Donnie Yen and Andrew Lau.

  • McDull, The Alumni

    Apr 22, 2015

    Samson Chiu can be congratulated for taking a bold step in a new direction while still retaining much of the gentle punch that is associated with the brand.

  • Motorway

    Apr 30, 2015

    ‘Motorway’ is a stripped down action thriller that dispenses with such luxuries as sub-plots to concentrate fully on the battle between cops and robbers.

  • My Best Bodyguard

    May 3, 2015

    There is a good idea for an action thriller buried somewhere in ‘My Best Bodyguard’ but it’s wasted on a cluttered narrative, mostly sloppy action and a whole lot of melodrama daftness.

  • Reign Of Assassins

    May 17, 2015

    Fast, fresh, funny and full of character and tension, this is wuxia done well and should be seen by fans of the genre at their earliest convenience.

  • Shamo

    May 22, 2015

    It’s gonna be a love it or loathe it kind of movie as it’s not the dark, vicious film I expected, although there are some disturbing scenes thrown in there.

  • The Guillotines

    Mar 21, 2015

    While certainly mounted on a sometimes epic scale and beautifully shot, Lau’s film disappoints due to rushed character motivations, unconvincing drama and an excessive use of slow motion.
