• A Beautiful New World

    Feb 22, 2015

    Shi Runjiu’s film is a modest production with flaws in certain key areas, but remains a genuinely interesting film.

  • 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.

  • A Heroic Fight

    Mar 24, 2015

    For anyone who wants a blast of what exceptional imaginations used to do with minor budgets, ‘A Heroic Fight’ will refresh more than it will befuddle.

  • A Touch Of Zen

    Jun 15, 2015

    It is a film that deserves to be watched by fans of all genres though and, alongside classics like ‘Come Drink With Me’, acts as a perfect portfolio for the late, great King Hu.

  • Beauty Escort

    Feb 22, 2015

    Unfortunately, ‘Beauty Escort’ is no old school classic and should probably only be viewed by complete-ists, or after you have exhausted many (many) other old school kung fu flicks or very late at night with a buddy who can make fun of it with you.

  • Cape No. 7

    Feb 28, 2015

    ‘Cape No.7’ is an ensemble production whose success is tied up with its exploration of Taiwan’s southernmost area, its use of localised flavour and copious amounts of colloquial humour.

  • Challenge Of Death

    Feb 28, 2015

    ‘Challenge Of Death’ was always going to provide some exhilarating action thanks to the collection of captivating combatants, but the story certainly leaves a lot to be desired.

  • Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon

    Mar 3, 2015

    The fights are almost seamlessly integrated and amongst some of the best on offer for a few years even if they are not new by Jade screen standards.

  • Dance Of Death

    Mar 5, 2015

    Chan’s choreography is the only minor highlight, but otherwise this is really only suitable for hardcore Angela Mao fans.

  • Death Duel Of Kung Fu

    Mar 6, 2015

    Thankfully, you’re never too far away from a spot of fisticuffs, which is a very good thing because you’re not likely to gain much enjoyment from any other part of this film.

  • Double Trouble

    Mar 8, 2015

    By all means watch the occasionally jaunty ‘Double Trouble’, but don’t move anything slightly necessary out of your schedule to accommodate it.

  • Dragon From Shaolin

    Mar 8, 2015

    On paper, this looked a winner: Yuen Biao in an Indiana Jones role fighting an assortment of villains in search of an ancient relic. On celluloid though, this is a grand turkey.

  • Dragon Inn

    Mar 8, 2015

    ‘Dragon Inn’ doesn’t quite compete with ‘A Touch Of Zen’ and ‘Come Drink With Me’, but anything to be criticised here is a mere niggle rather than a detrimental flaw.

  • Duel In The Tiger Den

    Apr 18, 2015

    A poor script, uninvolving direction and some tepid fight scenes combine to test even the most forgiving viewer’s patience.

  • Eagle’s Claw

    Mar 9, 2015

    ‘Eagle’s Claw’ is a reminder of Lee Tso-Nam’s ability to take a potentially pedestrian storyline and fill it with shades of intrigue throughout.

  • Fantasy Mission Force

    Mar 11, 2015

    ‘Fantasy Mission Force’ is a ridiculous film, but if you think you’ve seen every curio that Eastern cinema has to offer, this is worth watching.

  • Fatal Needles Vs. Fatal Fists

    Mar 11, 2015

    ‘Fatal Needles Vs. Fatal Fists’ is not a work of Kurosawan proportions, but it’s certainly better than there’s any reason to expect.

  • Fighting Ace

    Mar 12, 2015

    The description for ‘Fighting Ace’ doesn’t exactly make it jump off the page, but it proves to be a better than average effort.

  • 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.

  • Fists Of Legends 2: Iron Bodyguards

    Mar 13, 2015

    This is, in all honestly, a very bad film. However, if it were purely being judged on the action, then it would easily gain 3 stars.

  • God Man Dog

    Mar 17, 2015

    Chen Singsing’s film is a gentle and often realistic portrayal of humans dealing with grief and loneliness.

  • Golden Ninja Warrior

    Mar 19, 2015

    It does contain just enough bad kung fu movie clichés and shots of Yeung Huei-Chie in hot (or no) pants to keep you watching.

  • Incredible Kung Fu Mission

    Mar 28, 2015

    ‘Incredible Kung Fu Mission’ is peppered with a decent mix of humour, sentimentality and superior fight action, creating a solid independent feature.

  • 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.
