    Even though I was eager to like the film and the trailer helped make this seem a possibility, this is a major disappointment – even for the most forgiving fans of the Samuel Hui/Karl Maka classic.

    Anyone who has seen everything that Jackie, Sammo and Yuen have offered could do a lot worse than endure Chu Yen Ping’s messy action comedy.

  • Aces Go Places II

    Feb 16, 2015

    The formula that made the original so successful has naturally remained untampered, but the scope of effects and stunts clearly expanded.

  • Aces Go Places III: Our Man In Bond Street

    Feb 16, 2015

    Alongside this familiar narrative is the constantly disarming duo of Samuel Hui and Karl Maka and they of course continue to show great comic timing and interplay in the familiar roles of Sam and Kodijack.

  • All The Wrong Spies

  • Ip Man

    If you’re an action fan you won’t be disappointed and for me, this is Donnie Yen’s best film to date from an acting perspective.

  • Papa, Can You Hear Me Sing?
