• A Better Tomorrow III

    Feb 23, 2015

    As a standalone film ‘A Better Tomorrow 3’ is a fairly watchable effort thanks to an intriguing premise, but as a prequel to ‘A Better Tomorrow’ it just doesn’t quite cut it.

  • Aces Go Places III: Our Man In Bond Street

    Feb 16, 2015

    Alongside this familiar narrative is the constantly disarming duo of Samuel Hui and Karl Maka and they of course continue to show great comic timing and interplay in the familiar roles of Sam and Kodijack.

  • All About Women

    Feb 16, 2015

    ‘All About Women’ is hard work, something I never thought I’d be writing about a Tsui Hark film.

  • All The Wrong Clues

    Feb 16, 2015

    It’s such a shame that one of Lam’s more appealing roles is hamstrung by unusually poor direction from Tsui Hark.

  • Black Mask 2: City Of Masks

    Feb 23, 2015

    ‘Black Mask 2’ could be seen as Hark’s interpretation of what appeals to a global audience or maybe he just watched one too many episodes of ‘Power Rangers’ before production began.

  • Detective Dee And The Mystery Of The Phantom Flame

    Mar 7, 2015

    Impressive production values, an excellent cast and a few moments of genuine inspiration (courtesy of Sammo Hung’s action choreography) make the minutes fly be.

  • Double Team

    Mar 8, 2015

    It’s not exactly the best Van Damme movie around, but ‘Double Team’ remains entertaining fluff thanks to a few entertaining action highlights.

  • Flying Swords Of Dragon Gate

    Mar 14, 2015

    Those less critical may get more out of ‘Flying Swords’ as there is still a lot of high flying action on offer, despite it being stuffed with CGI, and the film certainly has a rich visual style.

  • Knock Off

    Apr 4, 2015

    Almost non-existent scripting and farcical characters that fail to provide the film with the necessary substance.

  • Love In The Time Of Twilight

    Apr 15, 2015

    ‘Love In The Time Of Twilight’ is the kind of film that starts awkwardly but increases in stature as the story continues.

  • Once Upon A Time In China

    May 6, 2015

    Hark combines a well-paced and beautifully photographed narrative with strong characters and exciting fight action.

  • Once Upon A Time In China II

    May 7, 2015

    In my opinion, this film does not have the same numerous levels within its story which made the first such an all round classic, however, much of the action is just as impressive.
