• Bad Blood

    Feb 20, 2015

    At times, the film will have you slipping into a catatonic state and you’ll just be praying for the next bit of action to come along.

  • Bloodfight

    Jan 1, 2018

    Although I like a lot of the people involved, there’s no escaping that ‘Bloodfight’ simply isn’t a very good martial arts movie.

  • Bodyguards And Assassins

    Feb 25, 2015

    Overall it’s a wonderful film, a blockbuster people call it, and maybe it is, but really for us Asian movie fans this is what it’s all about – a hard hitting, hard punching film with a heart of gold and a fist of iron.

  • 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.

  • Bullet In The Head

    Feb 27, 2015

    ‘Bullet in the Head’ still packs an enormous emotional punch and is very much one of the all time classics of Hong Kong cinema.

  • Dr. Lamb

    Mar 8, 2015

    Despite the occasional bloody highlight, ‘Dr. Lamb’ is a tough film to recommend as it often feels like little more than a collection of brutal murders.

  • 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.

  • Echoes Of The Rainbow

    Mar 10, 2015

    ‘Echoes Of The Rainbow’ is full of the balancing act between cliché and skilled drama, complete with solid performances throughout.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Full Contact

    Mar 15, 2015

    ‘Full Contact’ is a true action classic that boasts strong leading performances, inventive direction and mind-blowing fight scenes.

  • Fulltime Killer

    Mar 15, 2015

    It certainly doesn’t break new ground or quite manage to sit amongst the classics, but it’s a solid and stylish gunplay flick that delivers on a number of levels.

  • Future Cops

    Mar 16, 2015

    ‘Future Cops’ is definitely worth a look for its crazy action and glittering cast, but be warned that the middle section may make you reach for the fast-forward button.

  • Hitman

    Mar 25, 2015

    Jet lacks the screen presence to hold our attention and ultimately makes the long wait between the action set pieces just too long.

  • Ip Man

    Mar 30, 2015

    If you’re an action fan you won’t be disappointed and for me, this is Donnie Yen’s best film to date from an acting perspective.

  • Juliet In Love

    Apr 2, 2015

    ‘Juliet In Love’ could be well-described as a economic and perhaps minimal love story; there are no grand gestures or over-the-top histrionics.

  • Killer’s Love

    Apr 3, 2015

    ‘Killer’s Love’ has a bark that’s certainly worse than it’s bite and it remains an enjoyable ninety minutes.

  • King Of Robbery

    Apr 4, 2015

    Even though he has very little to work with, Simon Yam still manages to impress with his portrayal of yet another mean and moody criminal mastermind.

  • Looking For Mister Perfect

    Apr 13, 2015

    ‘Looking For Mister Perfect’ is the kind of light and fluffy film that one would associate with Wong Jing or Joe Ma and not the man responsible for savage hits like ‘City On Fire’ and ‘Full Contact’.

  • 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’.

  • Midnight Fly

    Apr 22, 2015

    Definitely a film of two halves, ‘Midnight Fly’ is a brave, uncompromising, yet not always successful Jacob Cheung feature.

  • Mr. Coconut

    May 1, 2015

    Thrown together rather than constructed, this is a production where the director has little idea how to generate organic laughs from situations and must therefore shoe-horn them in.

  • PTU

    May 16, 2015

    A stylish and moody piece from one of the masters of style and mood, ‘PTU’ is a dark journey into the equally dark heart of Hong Kong where the cops are almost as corrupt as the criminals.
