    While Derek Chiu’s latest film is an acceptable blockbuster, the wit and style of the director’s earlier works is sadly fading away from him.

  • 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 Beautiful New World

    Feb 22, 2015

    Shi Runjiu’s film is a modest production with flaws in certain key areas, but remains a genuinely interesting film.

  • 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

  • A Fistful Of Talons

    Mar 13, 2015

    Perhaps Billy Chong’s most polished and constantly entertaining film, ‘A Fistful Of Talons’ takes a well-used storyline and turns it into something much more original.

  • A Loner
