• Drive

    Mar 9, 2015

    If you like martial arts movies and long to see an American outing that does it right for a change, then ‘Drive’ is definitely worthy of your time.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Future X-Cops

    Mar 16, 2015

    Seemingly endless scenes of two annoying kids, empty nods to whatever is currently in popular culture and a few moments of teeth-grindingly insincere pathos.

  • Gantz

    Apr 3, 2015

    A movie should be able to stand on its own merits, but despite the situation intriguing me and the action exciting me, I couldn’t help feeling unsatisfied in the end.

  • Gen-Y Cops

    Mar 16, 2015

    For all the plot holes and script deficiencies, this is an excellent slice of Hong Kong entertainment with a return to the edict of fun film-making that made the 80’s stand out.

  • 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.

  • Godzilla

    Mar 19, 2015

    In the Kaiju genre, ‘Godzilla’ is a stone cold classic. The original monster movie is still a dark delight and essential viewing for anyone into Kaiju movies or Japanese cinema.

  • 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.

  • Helldriver

    Mar 23, 2015

    You are either into these kinds of flicks or not but with an infectious energy, a musical score that propels all the lunacy and a complete commitment to going insane, ‘Helldriver’ is, well, as mad as a bag of smashed frogs!

  • Hidden Heroes

    Mar 24, 2015

    At nearly two hours long, ‘Hidden Heroes’ is an ordeal that only those versed in S.A.S. survival tactics should ever attempt.

  • Hot War

    Mar 26, 2015

    Although this didn’t set the Hong Kong box-office alight, it is still recommended viewing.

  • I Love Maria

    Mar 27, 2015

    ‘I Love Maria’ offers a very good 100 minutes of entertainment for those who are looking for something new within Hong Kong cinema.

  • Kung Fu Cyborg: Metallic Attraction

    Apr 4, 2015

    As a continued supporter of Hong Kong cinema, it gives me no pleasure to call this absurd mess the biggest waste of a big budget in recent memory.

  • Legendary

    Oct 30, 2017

    ‘Legendary’ overcomes any budgetary limitations to deliver a solid adventure that harkens back to the fun monster movies of yesteryear.

  • Magic Crystal

    Apr 19, 2015

    Wong Jing manages to restrain his usual vulgarity and blend together some genuinely amusing comic scenes with an enviable amount of superior fight choreography.

  • Mothra

    Apr 30, 2015

    While it may lack the tension of some of the other Kaiju films, ‘Mothra’ makes for a very refreshing entry into the genre that provides more of a sense of fun than ferocity.

  • Natural City

    May 3, 2015

    Ultimately the overly serious tone and lack of energy telling the story make ‘Natural City’ a frustrating and hollow experience.

  • Ninja Apocalypse

    May 4, 2015

    While it clearly still has a number of issues, ‘Ninja Apocalypse’ remains a fairly entertaining low-budget action romp that is worthy of at least one watch.

  • Replicant

    May 17, 2015

    Fight fans may be somewhat disappointed by the lack of combat, but there’s certainly enough on offer here to please the casual viewer.

  • Returner

    May 17, 2015

    ‘Returner’ is a bizarre blend of sci-fi and action that rarely really seems to succeed in either genre.

  • RoboGeisha

    May 18, 2015

    ‘RoboGeisha’ is likely to be the best film about a robot Geisha ever made, has midnight movie cult status written all over it and if you are in the mood for it, is an absolute hoot.

  • Second Time Around

    May 21, 2015

    When the focus is on the more interesting science fiction narrative, director Lau succeeds in throwing in some surprising touches.

  • Sector 7

    May 22, 2015

    As is sadly the case with many of the current crop of 3D films, ‘Sector 7’ is another cinematic Potemkin village.
