• A Better Tomorrow

    Feb 23, 2015

    This is the ‘Citizen Kane’ of HK heroic bloodshed films and it never ages, even after repeat viewings.

  • A Better Tomorrow II

    Feb 23, 2015

    What this film lacks in plot, it sure as hell makes up for in action and the finale of ‘A Better Tomorrow II’ is a brutal display of guns, grenades and swordplay.

  • Bullet In The Head

    Feb 27, 2015

    ‘Bullet in the Head’ still packs an enormous emotional punch and is very much one of the all time classics of Hong Kong cinema.

  • 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.

  • From Riches To Rags

    Mar 15, 2015

    Ricky Hui therefore ensures that this is entertaining despite its very unpredictable nature making it an acquired taste.

  • Hand Of Death

    Mar 22, 2015

    Although not a masterpiece, ‘Hand Of Death’ is a good example of how quality quickly shines through and stands out in a crowded genre.

  • Hard Boiled

    Mar 22, 2015

    John Woo allowed his imagination and cinematic showmanship full flight in ‘Hard Boiled’, strapping his trademark visuals and themes to an RPG and launching them into orbit.

  • Hard Target

    Mar 22, 2015

    ‘Hard Target’ always seems to be credited simply as John Woo’s first American movie, but I actually think it is more accurately labelled as his best Hollywood outing.

  • Mission: Impossible II

    Apr 25, 2015

    ‘Mission: Impossible II’ certainly offers the world a clear glimpse of what Woo is capable of when it comes to action, but it also lacks his usual quota of emotional drama and camaraderie.

  • Money Crazy

    Apr 25, 2015

    Though it’s not in the same league as the Michael Hui hits it tries to emulate, ‘Money Crazy’ is still reasonably entertaining and certainly better than Woo’s other ventures into the genre.

  • Once A Thief

    May 6, 2015

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

  • 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.

  • Red Cliff

    May 16, 2015

    Despite having no conclusion of its own, all of the groundwork of the characterisation and story make the next chapter an exciting prospect.

  • Red Cliff: Part II

    May 16, 2015

    Part 2 is certainly the superior one, but both deserve individual credit for reviving the dying embers of John Woo’s career.

  • The Killer

    Apr 3, 2015

    It’s amazingly stylish with a brilliantly constructed story and some superb shoot-outs. If you call yourself an action movie fan then this one is going to be right up your alley!
