• Cure

    Apr 30, 2018

    It does share some style and themes with Kurosawa’s bigger genre hit ‘Pulse’, but ‘Cure’ is a tighter wound and better executed film that lingers long after the final frame.

  • Dark Water

    Mar 5, 2015

    Like the majority of Hideo Nakata’s work, ‘Dark Water’ proves to be more of a psychological entry into the genre rather than an all out gore-fest.

  • 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.

  • Detective Dee: The Four Heavenly Kings

    Jul 30, 2018

    Much like the first two Dee flicks, ‘The Four Heavenly Kings’ is an often breathless fantasy blockbuster that doesn’t skimp on the wuxia action, CGI wonderment and imaginative scenarios.

  • Detective Story

    Mar 7, 2015

    ‘Detective Story’ is another entertaining blast of martial arts fun from The Stunt People featuring some of the best screen fighting around.

  • Duelist

    Mar 9, 2015

    This is a sharply original love story set to incredible moving pictures. It has beautiful actors, heartfelt emotion and a genuine sense of originality.

  • Edge Of Innocence

    Sep 20, 2017

    ‘End of Innocence’ won’t be counted among the great thrillers to come out of Asia in recent years, but it’s a more than competent effort and generates real tension before the credits roll.

  • Fire Of Conscience

    Mar 13, 2015

    While the narrative and tone get a little muddled and the pace dips here and there, ‘Fire of Conscience’ is still a good tough-as-nails cop thriller with some brutal action.

  • Game Of Death II

    Mar 16, 2015

    Possibly not for the Bruce Lee purists, but a fantastic old-school flick, which is, another must have.

  • Ghost In The Shell

    Apr 14, 2017

    Those who give it a chance will be rewarded with a well made, at times thought provoking and overall entertaining version of a Japanese classic.

  • GYO: Tokyo Fish Attack

    Mar 21, 2015

    Strange, gross, manic and bonkers are all good terms to help describe ‘GYO’ but the film is also curiously gripping.

  • Have Sword, Will Travel

    Mar 23, 2015

    Fine performances, good cinematography and a well-paced storyline – despite the difficulty on my part to pick out its failings – will offer most viewers a rewarding 100 minutes of entertainment.
