    This is the ‘Citizen Kane’ of HK heroic bloodshed films and it never ages, even after repeat viewings.

  • A Bittersweet Life

    Feb 23, 2015

    A true gangster epic with brilliant performances, direction and action and not a mockney geezer or wideboy in sight. Simply: great.

    Any fan of wuxia films MUST see ‘A Chinese Ghost Story’. I can not give a higher recommendation for this veritable classic.

  • A Man Who Was Superman

    If you are willing to substitute blood for brains and real heart for cheap scares, this movie will be one you will remember long after you see it.

    Feb 18, 2015

    Director Hai Chung Man combines the conventions of commercial film-making with the subtlety of art-house cinema, but never loses the main heart of the film.

    For anyone new to Jackie Chan, ‘Armour Of God II: Operation Condor’ is a must-see film that shows how incredible the Hong Kong superstar was in his prime.

    A tapestry of emotion, audaciously flashing backwards and forwards and shifting voice-overs to piece together the moments that have led the characters to the barren wastes of the desert.

  • Breathless

    Feb 26, 2015

    The film carries on down a winding road of raised fists and black eyes but maintains a battered humanity as well.

  • Chungking Express

    It is rare for such a film to hold one’s attention seemingly without trying, and as such it must not be missed by anyone who loves films of any genre.

    ‘Confessions’ balances between cold hard reality and a subtly dream-like atmosphere that convinces the viewer that there isn’t a world outside of this horror.

    This is probably one of the most acrobatic Venoms films as they participate in some extremely complicated routines that are brilliantly put together.

    The fights are almost seamlessly integrated and amongst some of the best on offer for a few years even if they are not new by Jade screen standards.

    ‘Eastern Condors’ is a mind blowing mix of kung fu and wartime combat that will have you hooked from start to finish.

    ‘Enter the Dragon’ is a campy and extremely entertaining action romp that is successful because of two important ingredients – Bruce Lee and Martial Arts.

    ‘Fight Back To School’ is one of the finest films in the Stephen Chow back catalogue, and one of my favourite Hong Kong comedies of all time.

    Mar 13, 2015

    In all, this is the definitive martial arts movie. An all time classic which is as good as an all round film as it as a Kung Fu flick.

    In my opinion, this is Jet Li’s best work as he carries the film well, performing brilliantly in the films numerous fight sequences.

    Mar 22, 2015

    John Woo allowed his imagination and cinematic showmanship full flight in ‘Hard Boiled’, strapping his trademark visuals and themes to an RPG and launching them into orbit.

    Mar 24, 2015

    ‘Hero’ has shown that an exquisitely photographed film does not always have to be a case of style over substance.

    Mar 28, 2015

    For those prepared for difficult material and subject matter it is a stylish, gripping example of fearless, maverick cinema.
