• 13 Assassins

    Jul 2, 2015

    A grand tale of men banding together to fight an unrelenting evil, content to die if they can free their land from the marauding tyrant and his gargantuan army.

  • 14 Blades

    Jul 2, 2015

    It has numerous nods to the Shaw Brothers classics and harks back to those swordplay flicks of yesteryear, making you smile, cry, jump for joy and shout like a banshee, like any good martial arts film should.

  • 1911

    Jul 2, 2015

    One of the better mainland films of recent years and probably the best of the ones that focus on the revolution.

  • 1911

    Jul 2, 2015

    Yet another good looking Chinese epic that tries to cram way too much historical happenings into a somewhat brief running time but is still an okay stab by Chan to tackle “serious” filmmaking once again.

  • 2000 AD

    Jul 3, 2015

    Although this movie was enjoyable from start to finish, it still lacked something to make it an above average thriller, while the few surprises in store make it unlikely to be viewed more than once.

  • 252: Signal Of Life

    Jul 3, 2015

    This Japanese blockbuster is like a head on collision between a big budget disaster flick and a Lifetime/Hallmark/True Movies film of the week.

    Even though I was eager to like the film and the trailer helped make this seem a possibility, this is a major disappointment – even for the most forgiving fans of the Samuel Hui/Karl Maka classic.

  • A Battle Of Wits

    Feb 21, 2015

    ‘A Battle Of Wits’ is that rare work that is exciting, tense and yet is an introspective on the violence, war and conformity.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • A Bittersweet Life

    Feb 23, 2015

    A true gangster epic with brilliant performances, direction and action and not a mockney geezer or wideboy in sight. Simply: great.
