• 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 For The Winner

    Feb 17, 2015

    ‘All For The Winner’ is a fun all-round movie with a particularly pleasing performance from Stephen Chow.

  • 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.

  • All The Wrong Spies

    Feb 16, 2015

    Despite the weakness of its central performance, ‘All The Wrong Spies’ does incorporate the zest of the Cinema City films that dominated the early 80s.

  • All’s Well, Ends Well

    Feb 17, 2015

    There’s still enjoyment to be had in this Hong Kong comedy though as long as the potential viewer is willing to forgive its various shortcomings.

  • All’s Well, Ends Well ’97

    Feb 17, 2015

    Chow Sing-Chi completists may want to seek it out, but everyone else should divert their attention to his many more accomplished films.

  • Always On My Mind

    Feb 17, 2015

    The best advice I would give to anyone is to stick with this excellent production through its slower moments as there is much to savour here.

  • And I Hate You So

    Feb 17, 2015

    ‘And I Hate You So’ could and should have been much better; instead the viewer is left with a good film that simply didn’t realise its full potential.

  • Anna In Kung Fu Land

    Feb 17, 2015

    It’s doubtful whether even non-action audiences will be fully satisfied by this entertaining, but insubstantial production

  • Anna Magdalena

    Feb 18, 2015

    Director Hai Chung Man combines the conventions of commercial film-making with the subtlety of art-house cinema, but never loses the main heart of the film.

  • Arahan

    Feb 18, 2015

    The story is nothing new or revolutionary and takes just a little too long to get where it is going. Still, the film is made with skill and the comedy often hits home just as much as the fights do.

  • Armour Of God

    Feb 18, 2015

    The last twenty minutes alone are worth anyone’s money, as you will undoubtedly rewind in order to be repeatedly amazed by one of the greatest physical performers of any generation.

  • Armour Of God II: Operation Condor

    Feb 18, 2015

    For anyone new to Jackie Chan, ‘Armour Of God II: Operation Condor’ is a must-see film that shows how incredible the Hong Kong superstar was in his prime.

  • b420

    Feb 20, 2015

    ‘b420’ moves from a potentially arresting low-key beginning to a middle section that throws together predictable sub-plots, then Matthew Tang switches to a thriller for the final twenty minutes.

  • Badges Of Fury

    Feb 20, 2015

    ‘Badges of Fury’ cannot decide whether it is merely an abysmal spoof of cop films, an action comedy or a gaudy pantomime.

  • Bakery Amour

    Feb 20, 2015

    The film is a flawed attempt that offers a pleasant 100 minutes of entertainment, but nothing more substantial.

  • Banana Cop

    Feb 20, 2015

    ‘Banana Cop’ is a quick-moving film that is at times amusing and at times, thanks to some fine direction, suspense-filled.

  • Bangkok Adrenaline

    Feb 20, 2015

    While it may leave a lot to be desired in terms of cinematic competence, ‘Bangkok Adrenaline’ emerges as a fun little ride thanks to the inclusion of several hard hitting action highlights.

  • Barking Dogs Never Bite

    Feb 21, 2015

    Despite his attempts to look beneath the surface of Korea, Bong Joon-Ho is unable to sink his teeth into anything too substantial though

  • Battle Creek Brawl

    Feb 21, 2015

    It’s fair to say that ‘Battle Creek Brawl’ is an unfair representation of Jackie Chan’s undoubted talents.

  • Battlefield Baseball

    Feb 21, 2015

    Aside from the odd comedic highlight, ‘Battlefield Baseball’ feels more like a swing and a miss than a home run.

  • Bayside Shakedown

    Feb 21, 2015

    As an introduction to the lunacy of Wangan precinct and Japanese protocol in general, ‘Bayside Shakedown’ more than holds the attention with its zesty pace and attempts to do things a little differently.

  • Beauty On Duty!

    Feb 22, 2015

    The main problem with ‘Beauty On Duty’ is that it’s essentially a distillation of the legion of unfunny moments that Wong Jing has created throughout his long career.

  • Big Man Japan

    Feb 23, 2015

    ‘Big Man Japan’ isn’t always quite as quirky and clever as it thinks it is but is nevertheless another entertaining example of why Japanese cinema is at the forefront of the unique and creative.
