• A Chinese Ghost Story

    Feb 28, 2015

    Any fan of wuxia films MUST see ‘A Chinese Ghost Story’. I can not give a higher recommendation for this veritable classic.

  • A Terracotta Warrior

    Jun 10, 2015

    Bathing various scenes with the visual potency that alludes to Tsui Hark and with a rousing soundtrack at his disposal, Ching Siu Tung unleashes a minor epic that is highly recommended.

  • An Empress And The Warriors

    Mar 10, 2015

    ‘An Empress And The Warriors’ is enticing enough to divert the attention, but without anything substantial within the duration it is quickly forgotten.

  • Belly Of The Beast

    Feb 22, 2015

    A painfully generic kidnap/rescue flick with nothing in the plot or script to rise above most other straight to video fare.

  • Conman In Tokyo

    Mar 1, 2015

    This isn’t the best ever Hong Kong movie – it isn’t even the best ever Hong Kong gambling movie – but it could have been much worse.

  • Dr. Wai In “The Scripture With No Words”

    Mar 8, 2015

    The action is about only thing that makes ‘Dr. Wai’ worth watching, with Li on typically fine form for a couple of battles with some interesting opponents.

  • Duel To The Death

    Mar 9, 2015

    ‘Duel To The Death’ is ostentatious proof director Ching Siu Tung is not someone merely told where to put the camera.

  • Naked Weapon

    May 3, 2015

    Worth a look if you are a fan of the genre, as much of the action hints at the potential on offer when such talented choreographers are available.

  • Swordsman

    Jun 6, 2015

    ‘Swordsman’ is not as strong as its superior sequel and the aforementioned difficulties are all apparent, but it is still an ultimately rewarding film.

  • Swordsman II

    Jun 6, 2015

    The viewer is treated to a visual feast that fully sketches out this almost mythical setting – kudos once more to director and cinematographer.

  • The East Is Red

    Mar 9, 2015

    ‘The East Is Red’ ends the popular series with a visual bang that pummels the viewer relentlessly. Unfortunately the exercise is very much one of style over substance and the overall effect is a bewildering one.

  • The Raid

    May 16, 2015

    In what could be described as a mixture of Indiana Jones and well-known Hong Kong film traits, ‘The Raid’ is a very entertaining 100 minutes of action/comedy.

  • The Sorcerer And The White Snake

    May 31, 2015

    Fairly tame fun that will easily appease the ADD generation who are hooked on special effects. Go into it with that frame of mind and it’s likely that you’ll find an adequate time filler.

  • Wonder Seven

    Aug 10, 2017

    While it’s no great shakes ‘Wonder Seven’ will provide some nostalgia tinged enjoyment for those who miss the golden days of stunt filled Hong Kong action cinema.
