• 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 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.

  • Helpless

    Mar 23, 2015

    Though ‘Helpless’ features characters that are genre staples the acting has enough of an edge to divert attention away from clichés. A fine thriller, a solid drama and two hours of quality entertainment.
