• Butterfly Lovers

    Feb 27, 2015

    ‘Butterfly Lovers’ is a forgettable version of a legend that deserves a definitive screen portrayal – it has moments of interest, but proves to be an unevenly yoked movie.

  • Fly Me To Polaris

    Mar 14, 2015

    ‘Fly Me To Polaris’ makes no excuses for its obvious emotional machinations and a storyline clearly designed to tug at the heart-strings.

  • Happy Birthday

    Mar 22, 2015

    ‘Happy Birthday’ is a slickly packaged vehicle for its two stars, but utterly uninspiring at the very same time.

  • Hot War

    Mar 26, 2015

    Although this didn’t set the Hong Kong box-office alight, it is still recommended viewing.

  • Love You You

    Apr 16, 2015

    Despite being obsessively devoted to the rom-com rule book – so much so that you can almost pinpoint the exact minute of each expected twist – this is something of a refreshing surprise.

  • Mulan

    May 1, 2015

    It never quite capitalises on a spirited beginning, eventually becoming more of a leaden-footed drama than a blood and thunder action flick.

  • Seoul Raiders

    ‘Seoul Raiders’ is not only a disappointment in comparison to ‘Tokyo Raiders’, but also a worrying reminder of the recent lack of sparkle in Hong Kong action cinema.

  • Silver Hawk

    May 26, 2015

    Though there’s far less of the ghastly CGI that marred ‘The Touch’, ‘Silver Hawk’ still continues to remind the viewer of the chasm between the choreography of the 80s/early90s and today.

  • Speed Angels

    Jun 1, 2015

    Much of the problem with ‘Speed Angels’ is its apparent contentment with clichés and a dogged determination to be utterly mundane.

  • Summer Holiday

    Jun 3, 2015

    While ‘Summer Holiday’ has no major weaknesses, it is a traditionally clichéd romantic comedy that doesn’t attempt to throw anything more challenging into the blend.

  • Tokyo Raiders

    Jun 15, 2015

    ‘Tokyo Raiders’ therefore is a top-notch piece of entertainment that, with a little more care in certain departments, could have been even better.

  • Why Me, Sweetie?!

    Jun 27, 2015

    A few moments allow you to think you’re watching a better film than you actually are and Jingle Ma utilises his former skills as a choreographer to make Beijing look as splendid as possible.
