• Aces Go Places IV: You Never Die Twice

    Feb 16, 2015

    Unlike ‘Aces. III’ which failed to integrate the eastern and the western elements of the film, ‘Aces. IV’ succeeds in creating a globe-hopping adventure without losing its main Asian audience.

  • Burning Paradise

    Feb 27, 2015

    ‘Burning Paradise’ is definitely a worthy addition to the classic kung fu genre as well as the many legends of Fong Sai Yuk.

  • Full Alert

    Mar 15, 2015

    ‘Full Alert’ is more focused on crime and the effects of violence on the average man than it is on the dynamics of the police thriller.

  • Full Contact

    Mar 15, 2015

    ‘Full Contact’ is a true action classic that boasts strong leading performances, inventive direction and mind-blowing fight scenes.

  • In Hell

    Mar 28, 2015

    Van Damme puts in a very strong leading performance and Lam helps elevate some mediocre material to a much higher status.

  • Looking For Mister Perfect

    Apr 13, 2015

    ‘Looking For Mister Perfect’ is the kind of light and fluffy film that one would associate with Wong Jing or Joe Ma and not the man responsible for savage hits like ‘City On Fire’ and ‘Full Contact’.

  • Replicant

    May 17, 2015

    Fight fans may be somewhat disappointed by the lack of combat, but there’s certainly enough on offer here to please the casual viewer.

  • Sky On Fire

    Aug 25, 2017

    Ringo Lam in the director’s chair should ensure a film that is at least cohesive. ‘Sky On Fire’ shows that this faith in the film-maker may be currently under review as this incredulous action thriller is a messy, wildly inconsistent affair.

  • The Adventurers

    Feb 16, 2015

    A wishy-washy mish-mash of melodrama and action, renowned Hong Kong director Ringo Lam just couldn’t get the tone quite right for his mid-90s opus ‘The Adventurers’.

  • The Other Side Of Gentleman

    May 10, 2015

    With all characters underwritten it seems churlish to criticise performances, but eighties Asian singing sensation Tam is a charisma vacuum and not even the legendary Lin can convince in her thankless damp squib of a role.

  • The Suspect

    Jun 5, 2015

    ‘The Suspect’ is a highly recommended return to form for Ringo Lam after his brief stay in Hollywood. For fans of quality thrillers, this is unlikely to disappoint.

  • Touch And Go

    May 12, 2015

    It’s credit to both director and star that even when not at their best, they still manage to make ‘Touch And Go’ a watchable effort.

  • Triangle

    Jun 16, 2015

    ‘Triangle’ is a tense ride, an interesting character piece, oozes style and features a breathless and exhilarating last act making it an interesting and always entertaining experiment from directors Hark, Lam and To.

  • Twin Dragons

    Jun 18, 2015

    In truth, this is not a great movie, with nothing new added to the age old “separated brothers” story and some bad special effects.
