• Death Note

    Mar 6, 2015

    Right from the opening, it’s blatantly obvious that ‘Death Note’ is skipping some of the more important and enjoyable aspects of the story.

  • Death Trance

    Mar 6, 2015

    ‘Death Trance’ isn’t quite as good as ‘Versus’ but is nevertheless a visually striking, always creative and if a little slow in pace at stages, still packed with great Eastern flavoured action.

  • Demon Of The Lute

    Mar 6, 2015

    Mainstream Hong Kong cinema has often embraced the bizarre and the baffling, but ‘Demon Of The Lute’ may be a step too far for many.

  • Detective Dee And The Mystery Of The Phantom Flame

    Mar 7, 2015

    Impressive production values, an excellent cast and a few moments of genuine inspiration (courtesy of Sammo Hung’s action choreography) make the minutes fly be.

  • Ditto

    Mar 8, 2015

    The Korean hit makes ample use of the fine chemistry between its two main stars and the inherent interest generated by such a workable premise.

  • Dororo

    Mar 8, 2015

    Great characters, action and design make this an excellent fantasy adventure which harks back to the fun time fantasies such as ‘Willow’, ‘A Chinese Ghost Story’ and, yes, even ‘Krull’.

  • Dragon Ball Z: Cooler’s Revenge

    Sep 25, 2017

    ‘Cooler’s Revenge’ is another entertaining if somewhat average ‘Dragon Ball Z’ movie that, much like most of the previous outings, is a film that is probably better suited to the existing fanbase.

  • Dragon Ball Z: Dead Zone

    Oct 21, 2016

    While it is undoubtedly just a filler footnote in the ‘Dragon Ball Z’ universe, ‘Dead Zone’ still makes for an enjoyable watch that is likely to please fans of the franchise.

  • Dragon Ball Z: Lord Slug

    Jun 27, 2017

    Long-time fans of ‘Dragon Ball Z’ who can’t get enough of those crazy Kamehamehas will likely find plenty to appreciate here.

  • Dragon Ball Z: The Return of Cooler

    Dec 17, 2017

    While I wasn’t exactly thrilled to see the return of this particular enemy, ‘Dragon Ball Z: The Return of Cooler’ is still a solid ride that is a carried by an abundance of action.

  • Dragon Ball Z: The World’s Strongest

    Dec 31, 2016

    It’s nothing particularly new or flashy, but it is filled with enough action and comedy to leave you smiling once the final credits roll.

  • Dragon Tiger Gate

    Mar 9, 2015

    Don’t compare it to Yen and Yip’s ‘SPL’ or ‘Flashpoint’, just sit back and enjoy a good old fashioned comic book blockbuster with heaps of kung fu action.

  • Dragonball: Evolution

    Mar 9, 2015

    Loud, day-glo and stuffed with ropey CGI madness, for many ‘Dragonball: Evolution’ will be the stuff of nightmares.

  • Duckweed

    Jun 13, 2017

    There aren’t any surprises in ‘Duckweed’, but for a well made feel-good film it’s about as good as we’ll see this year.

  • Encounter Of The Spooky Kind

    Mar 10, 2015

    Martial arts, magic and bizarre creatures are blended together seamlessly, with expert direction.

  • Fist Of The North Star

    Mar 13, 2015

    Although far from perfect, ‘Fist Of The North Star’ is still a relatively fun adaptation that tries its best to service both fans of the source and martial arts movies in general.

  • Fly Me To Polaris

    Mar 14, 2015

    ‘Fly Me To Polaris’ makes no excuses for its obvious emotional machinations and a storyline clearly designed to tug at the heart-strings.

  • Future Cops

    Mar 16, 2015

    ‘Future Cops’ is definitely worth a look for its crazy action and glittering cast, but be warned that the middle section may make you reach for the fast-forward button.

  • Ghost Of The Mirror

    Mar 17, 2015

    Of itself ‘Ghost of the Mirror’ is a slight, though enjoyable fantasy romance. As an early film from an actress who would become one of Asia’s legends, it is fascinating.

  • God Of Gamblers III: Back To Shanghai

    Mar 20, 2015

    Just when you thought the ‘God Of Gamblers’ series was dead and buried, Wong Jing somehow manages to find a pretty nifty way of bringing it back.

  • Goemon

    Mar 19, 2015

    Chances are, if you’re a fan of Japanese war history or the Goemon legend, you’ll be pleased as punch with this update. Even if you’re not, Ninja action has never been so beautiful.

  • Golden Swallow

    Mar 20, 2015

    O Sing-Pui cooks up a stew of heavy-handed comedy, eroticism, romance and horror to send everyone home happy.

  • Handsome Siblings

    Mar 22, 2015

    Above average production values help and a touch of style to the proceedings as does the all-star cast, but it still may not be enough to earn this a proper recommendation.

  • Heaven And Hell

    Oct 4, 2017

    ‘Heaven and Hell’ is actually a whole lot more interesting, and engaging, than one would outwardly expect from its (largely) negative reputation.
