• 92 Legendary La Rose Noire

    Jul 19, 2015

    If any viewer has been brought up on the Hong Kong musicals that Jeff Lau’s work alludes to, this will be highly recommended.

  • A Better Tomorrow III

    Feb 23, 2015

    As a standalone film ‘A Better Tomorrow 3’ is a fairly watchable effort thanks to an intriguing premise, but as a prequel to ‘A Better Tomorrow’ it just doesn’t quite cut it.

  • A Roof With A View

    May 19, 2015

    The pace flags slightly near the end with a final section that is needlessly padded out, but there’s much to absorb in Tony Au’s work.

  • A-1

    Feb 15, 2004

    There are moments of entertainment here, but the flat denouement sums up the lack of real polish that the preceding 100 minutes had provided.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Bruce Lee, My Brother

    Feb 26, 2015

    Those jonesing for action may feel the pace sag, but ‘Bruce Lee, My Brother’ is a brilliant period family drama.

  • Cherie

    Nov 2, 2017

    Patrick Tam’s ‘Cherie’ is, simply put, little more than a moderately average eighties romantic comedy and decidedly underwhelming when compared against any of the true “greats” of the era.

  • Cold War

    Mar 1, 2015

    ‘Cold War’ is consistently entertaining and its massive success at the Hong Kong box-office shows that it clearly struck a chord with local audiences.

  • Cold War II

    Sep 24, 2016

    Like the first film, it is a slick and intense thriller that boasts solid performances from its cast.

  • Detective Dee And The Mystery Of The Phantom Flame

    Mar 7, 2015

    Impressive production values, an excellent cast and a few moments of genuine inspiration (courtesy of Sammo Hung’s action choreography) make the minutes fly be.

  • 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.

  • Her Fatal Ways

    Mar 23, 2015

    Widely seen as Carol Cheng’s finest hour, ‘Her Fatal Ways’ manages to combine a number of qualities to create a very satisfying experience.

  • Horseplay

    Mar 26, 2015

    This is superior entertainment of a light and fluffy nature that somehow feels more sophisticated than anything out at the moment (even though it probably isn’t).

  • I Love Hong Kong

    Mar 27, 2015

    ‘I Love Hong Kong’ doesn’t steer too far away from the usual New Year hi-jinks – it is an entertaining 2011 release, but will probably not be remembered come 2012.

  • Inspector Pink Dragon

    Mar 29, 2015

    By no means a classic action comedy, ‘Inspector Pink Dragon’ nonetheless succeeds in providing a entertaining 90-odd minutes.

  • Iron Road

    Mar 30, 2015

    Powered by Wu’s lean direction and vision and Li’s brilliant star turn, ‘Iron Road’ should win new fans for both.

  • 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.

  • Lady In Black

    Apr 5, 2015

    This is Brigitte Lin’s movie and her climactic tirade against her husband, bursting with anger and confusion lingers as one of her finest screen moments.

  • 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.

  • My Name Is Fame

    May 3, 2015

    ‘My Name Is Fame’ is essentially a platform for Lau Ching Wan and the actor makes full use of this opportunity.

  • New Dragon Gate Inn

    May 4, 2015

    May disappoint die-hard action fans, but would prove a good introduction to swordplay style films, especially for the H.K uninitiated and Hollywood lovers.

  • Our Time Will Come

    Jan 19, 2018

    ‘Our Time Will Come’ is another excellent Ann Hui film, but it’s Zhou Xun’s aptitude that lingers after the running time ends.

  • People’s Hero

    May 11, 2015

    In Derek Yee though, the film has an impressive craftsmen who layers the tension until the film’s ultimately downbeat conclusion.
