• 13: Game Of Death

    Jul 2, 2015

    Starting off as a black comedy, things soon turn more sinister, and gory, in this inventive and must see slice of Thai cinema.

  • 3-Iron

    Jul 3, 2015

    If you want to experience a beautiful, touching drama with a dreamlike atmosphere, then ‘3-Iron’ comes highly recommended.

  • 92 Legendary La Rose Noire

    Jul 19, 2015

    If any viewer has been brought up on the Hong Kong musicals that Jeff Lau’s work alludes to, this will be highly recommended.

  • 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 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.

  • A Hard Day

    Mar 22, 2015

    A crackerjack Korean comedy that features a wonderful double act by Lee Sun-Kyun and Cho Jin-Woong as the oddball antagonists.

  • A Taste Of Killing And Romance

    Jun 9, 2015

    ‘A Taste Of Killing And Romance’ may do enough to pass the time if you’re a fan of any of the actors involved but it’s certainly far from anyone’s finest work.

  • A World Without Thieves

    Jun 28, 2015

    This is a lustrous production that flatters to deceive, aiming for the intellect, but eventually preferring to show empty spectacle and supposed depth.

  • 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.

  • Azooma

    Feb 19, 2015

    One could almost believe the idea was hatched in a few minutes as scenes are needlessly dragged out and nothing significant happens until the closing moments.

  • 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.

  • 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 Dangerous

    Feb 20, 2015

    This lacklustre and also very sluggish remake, comes from Nicholas Cage and the Pang Brothers once again and offers nothing new to say and pretty much suffers from the same problems as the original.

  • Battles Without Honour And Humanity

    Feb 21, 2015

    What prevents Battles Without Honour and Humanity from being a true masterpiece is its confused, muddled plot.

  • 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.

  • Beast Cops

    Feb 21, 2015

    ‘Beast Cops’ is a powerfully shot and highly entertaining movie that raises some important issues regarding today’s society, which really need to be addressed.

  • Beijing Blues

    Feb 22, 2015

    ‘Beijing Blues’ is occasionally frustrating, but acts as an interesting anathema to the usual portrayal of police work as gritty or glamorous.

  • Big Bullet

    Feb 23, 2015

    Although the state of Hong Kong cinema is much approved now, it’s hard to forget the wretched state just a few years ago. ‘Big Bullet’ really stood out when it was released and remains a class act.

  • Black Coal, Thin Ice

    May 10, 2015

    ‘Black Coal, Thin Ice’ is one of those films that are encountered once in a while that are much easier to admire than feel warm and fuzzy about.

  • Blood Brothers

    Feb 24, 2015

    Not a complete waste of time as it does provide some basic gangster movie stylings but ‘Blood Brothers’ is just that: an exercise in style and a style that has been done much better by other films.

  • Boiling Point

    Feb 25, 2015

    For newcomers it may prove a little difficult to get into and occasionally confusing but those already enjoying Kitano’s films will easily find several merits here that are synonymous with his best work.

  • Born To Fight

    Feb 25, 2015

    It’s basically just ninety minutes of acrobatic fight sequences, nail biting stuntwork and laughable plot devices, so enjoy!

  • Boyka: Undisputed

    Oct 16, 2017

    Scott Adkins returns to one of his signature roles in this fourth instalment of the ‘Undisputed’ franchise and, much like Parts 2 & 3, he and the film deliver.
