    Even though I was eager to like the film and the trailer helped make this seem a possibility, this is a major disappointment – even for the most forgiving fans of the Samuel Hui/Karl Maka classic.

  • Ashes Of Time

    Feb 18, 2015

    A tapestry of emotion, audaciously flashing backwards and forwards and shifting voice-overs to piece together the moments that have led the characters to the barren wastes of the desert.

  • 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.

  • Chungking Express

    Mar 1, 2015

    It is rare for such a film to hold one’s attention seemingly without trying, and as such it must not be missed by anyone who loves films of any genre.

  • Cyclo

    If you give it a go it can be a rewarding and all together different movie viewing experience and shows the director is a gifted talent who can switch from gentle and beautiful to the dark and the violent with ease and skill.

    The major problem with ‘Fighting For Love’ is the fact that the leading characters are so unsympathetic that the viewer cares little about their fight to be together.

    John Woo allowed his imagination and cinematic showmanship full flight in ‘Hard Boiled’, strapping his trademark visuals and themes to an RPG and launching them into orbit.

  • He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Father

    Mar 23, 2015

    Unfortunately not enough of the storyline’s potential is realised to be fully satisfying; such an intriguing plot needed a bit more attention to its effects instead of just skimming over the matter.

  • Hero

    Mar 24, 2015

    ‘Hero’ has shown that an exquisitely photographed film does not always have to be a case of style over substance.

  • I Love Maria

    Mar 27, 2015

    ‘I Love Maria’ offers a very good 100 minutes of entertainment for those who are looking for something new within Hong Kong cinema.

  • In The Mood For Love

    Mar 28, 2015

    A good but not great film, as visually it works beautifully, but the pacing of the direction conflicts with the pace at which the story actually develops.
