• A Chinese Ghost Story

    Feb 28, 2015

    Any fan of wuxia films MUST see ‘A Chinese Ghost Story’. I can not give a higher recommendation for this veritable classic.

  • 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 Kid From Tibet

    Apr 3, 2015

    Without a doubt, ‘A Kid From Tibet’ is a hugely enjoyable action comedy that is the perfect showcase for the multi-talented Yuen Biao.

  • 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.

  • Alien Vs. Ninja

    Feb 16, 2015

    For a change, ‘Alien Vs. Ninja’ is an amusingly titled, low budget action movie that actually lives up to expectations.

  • All-Round Appraiser Q: The Eyes Of Mona Lisa

    Apr 13, 2015

    ‘All-Round Appraiser Q’ is a winning crime film with a brilliant heroine and a very pleasant dynamic between her and the adoring acolyte Yuto.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Assassin Rising

    Feb 18, 2015

    Not quite as bad as the above descriptions might make it sound but far too barmy, slapdash and low rent to be fully successful with its intentions.

  • Avalon

    Feb 19, 2015

    Some may dismiss this merely as ‘The Matrix’ with opera. Others will agree it is an example of science fiction using its brain as well as its trigger finger.

  • Be With You

    Feb 21, 2015

    ‘Be With You’ is a Japanese drama that is easy to appreciate on the surface as it is a well-made, well-acted work that skilfully tells a story without ever getting side-tracked in needless sub-plots.

  • Beauty Escort

    Feb 22, 2015

    Unfortunately, ‘Beauty Escort’ is no old school classic and should probably only be viewed by complete-ists, or after you have exhausted many (many) other old school kung fu flicks or very late at night with a buddy who can make fun of it with you.

  • Book Of Swords

    Feb 25, 2015

    ‘Book Of Swords’ offers very little of substance and is really only suited to hardcore Mortal Kombat fanboys.

  • Bug Me Not!

    Feb 27, 2015

    ‘Bug Me Not!’ is an extremely lightweight production that is often so cringeworthy that you’ll have to resist the urge to hurl your remote at the screen.

  • Bulletproof Monk

    Feb 27, 2015

    Probably best described as a cliché-ridden mess that is condemned by a combination of a poor script, bad casting and laughable action.

  • Burning Paradise

    Feb 27, 2015

    ‘Burning Paradise’ is definitely a worthy addition to the classic kung fu genre as well as the many legends of Fong Sai Yuk.

  • Chanbara Striptease

    Feb 28, 2015

    ‘Chanbara Striptease’ is about topless women fighting with swords of which it has many scenes of, so if you want to see such a thing, then watch this film.

  • 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.

  • Cyborg She

    Mar 4, 2015

    Kwak Jae-Young has a PhD in stirring emotions and this film has more heart-pulling moments of manipulative magic than a room full of kittens playing with balls of string.

  • D-War

    Mar 4, 2015

    I’m normally a sucker for a cheesy monster movie but ‘D-War’ fails to produce the goods on just about every level.

  • Daimajin

    Mar 4, 2015

    A Japanese monster movie with a samurai twist, ‘Daimajin’ from 1966 is a slowburn film that is part period drama and part giant stone man Kaiju extravaganza.

  • Deadful Melody

    Mar 5, 2015

    If you like your early 90s wuxia flicks full of excessive theatrical action and characters then ‘Deadful Melody’ is a lot of fun.

  • Deadly Dream Woman

    Mar 5, 2015

    A deeply unfunny comedy from director Taylor Wong who allows all pace and narrative flair to disappear out of the window after the first ten minutes.
