• 72 Tenants Of Prosperity

    Jul 19, 2015

    With a welcome big screen appearance by Anita Yuen and an all-star rendition of Sam Hui’s beloved ’Private Eyes’ theme, this celebration of Hong Kong is an unpretentious distraction.

  • Cageman

    Feb 27, 2015

    Jacob Cheung’s celebrated drama is that magical juxtaposition of gritty social commentary and absorbing character study that many lesser directors aspire to replicate.

  • Carry On Hotel

    Feb 28, 2015

    ‘Carry On Hotel’ should work better than it does, but, due to uninspired writing and direction, is merely passable entertainment.

  • Changing Partner

    Feb 28, 2015

    ‘Changing Partner’ has enough moments of genuine amusement to help paper over the cracks.

  • Coup De Grace

    Mar 2, 2015

    Make no mistake, ‘Coup De Grace’ is not an award winner or even a genre masterpiece, but its modest goals are easily achieved.

  • Gift From Heaven

    Mar 17, 2015

    ‘Gift From Heaven’ is a low-key comedy, but a very watchable 90 minutes.

  • Love Undercover 2: Love Mission

    Apr 16, 2015

    Joe Ma’s goal is to create a fun comedy that highlights the charm of Miriam Yeung and absorbs the viewer in her outlandish adventures – in this regard the film is a definite success.

  • Madam City Hunter

    Apr 19, 2015

    Although it could be argued that there is some well-executed action at the end, the fact of the matter is that it comes too late to succeed in entertaining.

  • Marry A Rich Man

    Apr 20, 2015

    ‘Marry A Rich Man’ is a rom-com film that commits the cardinal crime of not being very romantic.

  • Mr. Vampire II

    May 1, 2015

    Not a waste of time by any means, and certainly a nice addition to the main stars filmographies, however, it is certainly not up to the standard of its ground breaking prequel.

  • Night Life Hero

    May 4, 2015

    Until that desperate sag half way through, this is an oft-ignored flick that will spark a pleasant feeling of nostalgia in us all.

  • Once A Thief

    May 6, 2015

    John Woo really surprised the audiences with this mixture of acrobatic gunplay action and comedy.

  • Operation Pink Squad

    May 9, 2015

    What the potential viewers will get with this enjoyable production is a solid combination of some amusing comedy scenes, a few dramatic moments and a couple of well choreographed action sequences.

  • Operation Scorpio

    Jul 8, 2015

    This film has been elevated to cult status in recent years and has become a huge favourite with a world-wide audience. All of this is thoroughly deserved.

  • Overheard 2

    May 10, 2015

    While ‘Overheard’ was an excellent homage to the great American conspiracy films of the 70s, the in-name-only sequel is a more routine two hours with a far less incisive denouement.

  • Plain Jane To The Rescue

    May 11, 2015

    Episodic like a Hui Brothers film but without the sharp humour, ‘Plain Jane To The Rescue’ is an enjoyable diversion though it may test the patience of some fans.

  • Prince Of The Sun

    May 15, 2015

    If the rest of the film had been as good as the last half hour then ‘Prince of the Sun’ would be more fondly remembered.

  • Red Wolf

    May 17, 2015

    While it remains watchable, ‘Red Wolf’ really suffers from its own inability to create anything fresh.

  • Robotrix

    May 18, 2015

    An extremely dated Category III exploitation flick that, a few nasty bits aside, is more camp than cool.

  • Sea Root

    May 21, 2015

    Lau Ching-Wan is simply stunning in the role of Root, putting so much delicate charm and humility in his part that it’s impossible for the viewer not to empathise with him.

  • Shanghai Blues

    May 22, 2015

    ‘Shanghai Blues’ is, overall, superior entertainment, but by the time the end credits roll its hard not to think of what might have been.

  • Skinny Tiger And Fatty Dragon

    May 27, 2015

    Another superb Sammo film which sees him team up with Karl Maka for more hijinks.

  • The Fun, The Luck And The Tycoon

    Mar 15, 2015

    ‘The Fun, The Luck And The Tycoon’ is not hilarious or particularly side-splitting, but the humour is such that it hits the mark in a subtle manner.

  • The Top Bet

    Nov 3, 2016

    ‘The Top Bet’ is that very parochial fusion of gambling and ‘nonsense comedy’ (mo lei tau) that many of us are still baffled by after all of these years.
