• 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • A Chinese Odyssey Part 1: Pandora’s Box

    Feb 28, 2015

    Great all-round entertainment that shows Stephen Chow and the Monkey King myth at their finest.

  • A Chinese Odyssey Part 2: Cinderella

    May 3, 2015

    If you enjoyed the first ‘A Chinese Odyssey’, then this second part is pretty much guaranteed to please.

  • A Chinese Tall Story

    Feb 28, 2015

    Lau’s modern interpretation is an extremely wild one that is often mind blowing in its visuals, but in truth it’s the heart warming love story that prevails and makes the film a very entertaining one.

  • A Man Called Hero

    Apr 20, 2015

    Andrew Lau has a very obvious formula for making comic book adaptations and it’s one that is ultimately not very satisfying.

  • 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.

  • A Touch Of Zen

    Jun 15, 2015

    It is a film that deserves to be watched by fans of all genres though and, alongside classics like ‘Come Drink With Me’, acts as a perfect portfolio for the late, great King Hu.

  • Alone Across The Pacific

    Feb 17, 2015

    Exquisite cinematography, immense talent behind the lens as well as a superb lead performance all add up to create an inspirational masterpiece.

  • Ambitious Kung Fu Girl

    Feb 17, 2015

    It is a diverting 90 minutes with a few well constructed scenes scattered throughout, but this hardly compensates for its waste of potential.

  • Arrietty

    Feb 18, 2015

    An easy recommendation as it’s still a fun-filled family adventure that is suitably heart-warming and easy on the eye.

  • Azumi

    Feb 19, 2015

    It may be a different genre but Kitamura proves he is not just a one trick pony and still knows how to successfully shoot the action and keep the characters interesting throughout.

  • Azumi 2: Death Or Love

    Feb 19, 2015

    A worthy follow up to Kitamura’s stylish original and certainly packs a punch in the Samurai action department.

  • Best Of The Best 4: Without Warning

    Feb 22, 2015

    There really is no disputing that ‘Best Of The Best 4’ is a far cry from the quality we have come to expect from the series, and this is basically nothing more than a very faceless action movie.

  • Blood Of Warriors

    Feb 24, 2015

    ‘Blood of Warriors’ certainly tries its best but is far too hampered by the excessive melodramatics and the general feeling of historical action epic fatigue.

  • Born To Fight

    Feb 25, 2015

    While ‘Born To Fight’ may not be the slickest production, it is still a hell of a lot of fun to watch thanks to the presence of some top-notch fight scenes.

  • Brotherhood Of The Wolf

    Feb 26, 2015

    ‘Brotherhood Of The Wolf’ doesn’t quite contain enough action to hold fight fans’ attention but also lacks the innovation to be anything more than a weak murder mystery.

  • Chinese Zodiac

    Feb 28, 2015

    ‘Chinese Zodiac’ gives Jackie Chan fans (including me), who had been awaiting its arrival especially eagerly, very little to get excited about.

  • Chuji The Gambler

    Feb 28, 2015

    ‘Chuji The Gambler’ is a superb marriage of a director’s craft and an actor with a transcendent charisma that seeps off the screen.

  • Circle Of Iron

    Mar 1, 2015

    It may not be quite as thrilling a prospect as it could of been with Bruce Lee in the leading role, but ‘Circle Of Iron’ still retains a number of likeable qualities.

  • Crazy Hong Kong

    Mar 3, 2015

    Despite some effective chemistry between N!xau and Lau Ching-Wan in some scenes, this is a strictly low-priority film.

  • Crystal Hunt

    Mar 4, 2015

    If you are a big Donnie fan, or loved ‘Tiger Cage’ and the ‘In The Line Of Duty’ films, then this will surely be a welcome addition to your collection.
