• A Man Called Hero

    Apr 20, 2015

    Andrew Lau has a very obvious formula for making comic book adaptations and it’s one that is ultimately not very satisfying.

  • China Strike Force

    Feb 28, 2015

    It’s worth watching, but will not go down as the best film that Hong Kong has produced in recent years – far from it in fact.

  • Chinese Zodiac

    Feb 28, 2015

    ‘Chinese Zodiac’ gives Jackie Chan fans (including me), who had been awaiting its arrival especially eagerly, very little to get excited about.

  • Drunken Master II

    Mar 9, 2015

    This is truly a masterpiece of the genre with Chan, who was approaching his 40th birthday at the time, on astounding form.

  • First Strike

    Mar 13, 2015

    Vitally, ‘First Strike’ is still full of the energy and invention that leaves so many other action films pale in comparison.

  • Kung Fu Yoga

    Feb 20, 2017

    It gives me no pleasure to say that I would even consider, if heavily medicated, watching ‘The Spy Next Door’ again rather than this.

  • Let The Bullets Fly

    Apr 12, 2015

    Entertaining in parts with a game cast on good form but frustratingly uneven and unsatisfying a film as a whole, ‘Let the Bullets Fly’ lays on the political subtext but forgets to have fun with it.

  • New Police Story

    May 4, 2015

    The performances from all parties are excellent, and Jackie has reinstalled a little faith in me that he is still capable of making a good action movie.

  • Project S

    May 16, 2015

    Stanley Tong continues to show his skill in the action genre with more kinetic direction.

  • Rumble In The Bronx

    May 19, 2015

    The action is far superior to that of any American made film on ten times the budget, and shows Chan at his best shortly after the excellent ‘Drunken Master 2’.

  • The Myth

    May 3, 2015

    At times frustrating and yet mostly entertaining, ‘The Myth’ may not be vintage Chan, but there are glimpses here of a performer who is still a valuable treasure for world cinema.

  • Who Am I?

    Jun 27, 2015

    ‘Who Am I?’ may not be the ‘Drunken Master 2’ successor that many fans are searching for (in vain), but it does still contain plenty of top notch action and enough enjoyable Chan-isms to make it well worth a watch.
