• China O’Brien

    Feb 28, 2015

    The narrative is fairly crisp, but cannot make the action any less ‘American’ in its pace and imagination (or lack of!).

  • Choy Lee Fut

    Feb 28, 2015

    Even the action becomes monotonous by the time the tournament begins and there’s probably as much genuine Choy Lee Fut on display as there was in ‘Pretty Woman’.

  • Command Performance

    Mar 1, 2015

    ‘Command Performance’ isn’t exactly the worst movie ever, but it is a far cry from the Dolph Lundgren vehicles that we used to know and love.

  • Cradle 2 The Grave

    Mar 3, 2015

    The editing is enough to cause seasickness and confusion, while Jet’s opponents are nothing but meathead wrestlers and a criminally underused Mark Dacascos.

  • Crazy Shaolin Disciples

    Mar 3, 2015

    While ‘Crazy Shaolin Disciples’ does have a few merits, I’d have to say that there is far better available elsewhere.

  • Deadball

    Mar 5, 2015

    Not a total strike out but could have been a whole lot more fun, and funnier, with a little more energy injected into it.

  • Deadly Dream Woman

    Mar 5, 2015

    A deeply unfunny comedy from director Taylor Wong who allows all pace and narrative flair to disappear out of the window after the first ten minutes.

  • Death Kappa

    Mar 6, 2015

    ‘Death Kappa’ is a real mess of a film that seems to be trying too hard to be considered cult rather than focusing on getting the basics right.

  • Death Note

    Mar 6, 2015

    Right from the opening, it’s blatantly obvious that ‘Death Note’ is skipping some of the more important and enjoyable aspects of the story.

  • Dr. Lamb

    Mar 8, 2015

    Despite the occasional bloody highlight, ‘Dr. Lamb’ is a tough film to recommend as it often feels like little more than a collection of brutal murders.

  • Dr. Wai In “The Scripture With No Words”

    Mar 8, 2015

    The action is about only thing that makes ‘Dr. Wai’ worth watching, with Li on typically fine form for a couple of battles with some interesting opponents.

  • Dragonball: Evolution

    Mar 9, 2015

    Loud, day-glo and stuffed with ropey CGI madness, for many ‘Dragonball: Evolution’ will be the stuff of nightmares.

  • Drunken Master III

    Mar 9, 2015

    The weak plot and general ridiculousness are just too much to bear, and most of the star power winds up being utterly wasted.

  • Duel In The Tiger Den

    Apr 18, 2015

    A poor script, uninvolving direction and some tepid fight scenes combine to test even the most forgiving viewer’s patience.

  • Escape From Brothel

    Mar 10, 2015

    ‘Escape from Brothel’ may sound like it would a wild trashy romp but is in fact a grimy and often depressive trip through Hong Kong sleaze.

  • Fantasy Mission Force

    Mar 11, 2015

    ‘Fantasy Mission Force’ is a ridiculous film, but if you think you’ve seen every curio that Eastern cinema has to offer, this is worth watching.

  • Fight Back To School 3

    Mar 12, 2015

    ‘Fight Back To School 3’ is a sad dip in quality for the series, with Jing reducing the all-important comedy routines to the lowest common denominator.

  • Fighting Fish

    Mar 12, 2015

    The lack of a real plot combined with some extremely theatrical action often makes the film feel more like a set of fighter’s showreels rather than a proper movie.

  • Fists Of Legends 2: Iron Bodyguards

    Mar 13, 2015

    This is, in all honestly, a very bad film. However, if it were purely being judged on the action, then it would easily gain 3 stars.

  • Flying Swords Of Dragon Gate

    Mar 14, 2015

    Those less critical may get more out of ‘Flying Swords’ as there is still a lot of high flying action on offer, despite it being stuffed with CGI, and the film certainly has a rich visual style.

  • Force Of Five

    Mar 14, 2015

    Winds up being a complete mess of a movie that is neither suitable for kids nor action-packed enough for fight fans.

  • From Vegas To Macau II

    Sep 17, 2016

    ‘From Vegas To Macau II’ gets very mild commendation for a few nods to past glories and the occasional joke that doesn’t feel like waterboarding.

  • From Vegas To Macau III

    Oct 5, 2016

    Packed with the deluge of banality and popular references that will doubtlessly age the film well before it’s time, this third part is every bit as frustrating and lazy as the one that came before it.

  • Fury In The Shaolin Temple

    Mar 15, 2015

    The only real entertainment is watching the truly menacing villain over-act and cackle viciously while bearing a passing resemblance to Jimmy Saville.
