• A Book of Heroes

    Feb 25, 2015

    Anyone who has seen everything that Jackie, Sammo and Yuen have offered could do a lot worse than endure Chu Yen Ping’s messy action comedy.

  • Aces Go Places II

    Feb 16, 2015

    The formula that made the original so successful has naturally remained untampered, but the scope of effects and stunts clearly expanded.

  • Anna In Kung Fu Land

    Feb 17, 2015

    It’s doubtful whether even non-action audiences will be fully satisfied by this entertaining, but insubstantial production

  • Blood: The Last Vampire

    Feb 24, 2015

    Much of the story could have been padded better, with the format really revolving around getting to the next action sequence when more depth to the characters would have been far more beneficial.

  • 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.

  • Conman In Tokyo

    Mar 1, 2015

    This isn’t the best ever Hong Kong movie – it isn’t even the best ever Hong Kong gambling movie – but it could have been much worse.

  • Fist Of Fury II

    Mar 13, 2015

    Although still quite a way off classic standards, ‘Fist Of Fury II’ just goes to show that it is possible to make a “Bruceploitation” flick that is fun to watch.

  • Fist Of Legend

    Mar 13, 2015

    In my opinion, this is Jet Li’s best work as he carries the film well, performing brilliantly in the films numerous fight sequences.

  • Heroes Of The East

    May 23, 2015

    ‘Heroes Of The East’ starts relatively slowly, but when the storyline develops beyond the basic exposition, this is another kung fu treat from ‘The Pops’.

  • Legend Of A Fighter

    Apr 6, 2015

    Considering they both draw inspiration from the same source, it’s no surprise that ‘Legend Of A Fighter’ often feels a little too similar to ‘Fist Of Fury’.

  • 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.

  • Ninja Thunderbolt

    May 4, 2015

    If you’re happy to laugh along with it then you’ll still find something to appreciate, but a kung fu classic this is not.

  • Prodigal Boxer

    May 16, 2015

    By no means unexciting, the choreography still lacks a stylish edge and tends to appear archaic at times. This is compensated by director Chai Ying Min’s brave concentration on the various relationships of the story.

  • Shinjuku Incident

    May 24, 2015

    There’s some very powerful visual displays of violence that pepper the film throughout, showing us that if you turn to the dark side you really will become slave to its master.

  • So Close

    May 29, 2015

    Those with a spare couple of hours and a penchant for attractive women shooting up enough plate glass to build a large greenhouse should rent this today.

  • The Legend Of The Owl

    Apr 6, 2015

    ‘The Legend Of The Owl’ is a positively insane, yet gloriously inventive production that boasts more hits than misses.

  • Twinkle Twinkle Lucky Stars

    Jun 19, 2015

    As with the rest of the series, the comedy in ‘Twinkle Twinkle Lucky Stars’ may not appeal to everyone but there’s certainly enough action on display to entertain any fan of Hong Kong cinema.
