• Come Drink With Me

    Mar 1, 2015

    ‘Come Drink With Me’ has convinced me of King Hu’s mastery of film-making and I would certainly consider his work here to be almost equal to the best of Chang Cheh and Liu Chia-Liang.

  • Dance Of The Drunk Mantis

    Mar 5, 2015

    Yuen Woo-Ping and his brothers fill the film with stunning ‘drunken’ conflicts and duels.

  • Drunken Master

    Mar 9, 2015

    No one who claims to be a Hong Kong action cinema fan or a true Chan fan should be without a copy of this movie.

  • Fist To Fist

    Mar 13, 2015

    The plot and characterisation are very weak but there’s enough about the fights to keep a kung fu fan watching till the end.

    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’.

    ‘Snake In The Eagle’s Shadow’ gave Jackie his first chance to shine outside the reigns of Lo Wei, and under the expert guidance of Woo Ping and Ng See Yuen delivers a classic of the genre.

  • The 36th Chamber Of Shaolin

    Liu Chia Liang’s ‘The 36th Chamber Of Shaolin’ is an important cinematic moment and remains influential not just in Hong Kong film-making, but also globally.

  • The Buddhist Fist

    Feb 27, 2015

    Unfortunately, for veterans of old-school flicks, the choreography on display here is nothing new, and a lot of it takes place in the dark, which makes it less than easy to follow.

  • The Mystery Of Chess Boxing

    May 3, 2015

    The stand-out feature is the abundant fight scenes that are not only exciting, but also have a level of imagination not always seen in independent kung-fu cinema.

  • The World Of Drunken Master

    Jun 28, 2015

    Joseph Kuo can be credited with providing the genre with much to savour, but ‘World Of Drunken Master’ is a very routine kung fu comedy.
