• Drug War

    Mar 9, 2015

    Johnnie To charges out the gate with ‘Drug War’: a blitz of tension, style and almost unrelenting momentum.

  • Fantasia

    Mar 10, 2015

    This, as you can tell from my gushing praise, is a film that has an obvious admiration and affection for the films that inspired it.

  • Fulltime Killer

    Mar 15, 2015

    It certainly doesn’t break new ground or quite manage to sit amongst the classics, but it’s a solid and stylish gunplay flick that delivers on a number of levels.

  • Help!!!

    Mar 23, 2015

    Not a Brunel intellectual challenge, this is a recommended satirical comedy, easy to enjoy and a feather in the cap of Johnnie To’s varied filmography.

  • Himalaya Singh

    Mar 25, 2015

    ‘Himalaya Singh’ is a depressing fusion of noise and colour that Hong Kong cinema can ill-afford to keep churning out.

  • Love For All Seasons

    Apr 15, 2015

    The concept may take a little getting used to, but ‘Love For All Seasons’ is a superior vehicle for Sammi Cheng and an enjoyable mixture of zany plot twists, comedy and romance.

  • Love On A Diet

    Apr 15, 2015

    There is still much to enjoy in ‘Love On A Diet’ and once again the chemistry between the lead pair makes this a quality slice of entertainment.

  • Mad Detective

    Apr 18, 2015

    If you like your cop thrillers but want something just a little different then ‘Mad Detective’ has got both bases covered.

  • Needing You

    May 3, 2015

    There is much to enjoy in ‘Needing You’ and the film is a pleasant antidote to Hollywood’s own romantic comedies.

  • Running On Karma

    May 19, 2015

    It successfully manages to combine numerous genres to create a truly enlightening piece of cinema that shows just how unique Asian filmmaking can be.

  • The Shopaholics

    May 25, 2015

    ‘The Shopaholics’ is a simple time waster that has a few effective moments, but meanders around until its uninspiring conclusion.

  • Turn Left, Turn Right

    Jun 18, 2015

    It’s difficult to avoid over-gushing praise, but this is a sweet, enchanting romantic comedy that has enough moments of genuine empathy to fill a dozen lesser films.

  • Vengeance

    Jun 20, 2015

    If you love the gunplay genre then you’ll love ‘Vengeance’ as it’s amazing to look at, but the story does take a backseat so that the action can be given centre stage.

  • Where A Good Man Goes

    Jun 26, 2015

    The unrealistic and slightly uncomfortable relationship that is the film’s centre never lets the film be anything more than a watchable film from a director who more should be expected from.
