• Fong Sai Yuk

    Mar 14, 2015

    ‘Fong Sai Yuk’ may not be the best kung fu film ever made, but it doesn’t disappoint and is highly recommended viewing.

  • 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.

  • Harakiri

    Mar 22, 2015

    An incredible samurai film and a classic piece of Japanese filmmaking this is old school filmmaking and storytelling at its best.

  • Hero

    Mar 24, 2015

    ‘Hero’ has shown that an exquisitely photographed film does not always have to be a case of style over substance.

  • Heroes Two

    Mar 24, 2015

    ‘Heroes Two’ is not one of the definitive collaborations between Chang Cheh and Fu Sheng, but it offers quality in most departments.

  • Legend Of The Fist: The Return Of Chen Zhen

    Apr 6, 2015

    ‘Legend Of The Fist’ is a film that promises so much but delivers far less, especially considering this is a collaboration between Donnie Yen and Andrew Lau.

  • My Way

    May 3, 2015

    ‘My Way’ is a based-on-true-events film with significant embellishments and dramatic orchestration. Of course, that’s not to say it isn’t very affecting overall though.

  • Operation Chromite

    May 31, 2017

    ‘Operation Chromite’ isn’t much different from any other recent big budget Korean war epic but on its own well produced terms and commitment to delivering spectacle, certainly entertains.

  • Red Cliff

    May 16, 2015

    Despite having no conclusion of its own, all of the groundwork of the characterisation and story make the next chapter an exciting prospect.

  • Red Cliff: Part II

    May 16, 2015

    Part 2 is certainly the superior one, but both deserve individual credit for reviving the dying embers of John Woo’s career.

  • Rurouni Kenshin

    May 19, 2015

    ‘Rurouni Kenshin’ is resolutely pulp entertainment though and while it is unlikely to be mentioned in the same breath as ‘Yojimbo’ in years to come, it hits enough of its targets to satisfy.

  • Sacrifice

    May 20, 2015

    ‘Sacrifice’ is not going to find itself among Chen Kaige’s most revered films, yet it is still a classy almost operatic historical film that holds the attention.
