• Challenge Of The Masters

    Feb 28, 2015

    Despite the fact that ‘Challenge Of The Masters’ hasn’t aged as well as some of Liu Chia-Liang’s other notable works, there’s undoubtedly much on offer for genre fans and the casual cinema-goer.

  • Crazy Sex

    Nov 13, 2017

    Fans of Shirley Yu and Chen Ping or lurid seventies Chinese sex-comedies will find some rewarding nuggets of enjoyment within ‘Crazy Sex’.

  • Dance Of Death

    Mar 5, 2015

    Chan’s choreography is the only minor highlight, but otherwise this is really only suitable for hardcore Angela Mao fans.

  • Hand Of Death

    Mar 22, 2015

    Although not a masterpiece, ‘Hand Of Death’ is a good example of how quality quickly shines through and stands out in a crowded genre.

  • Kidnap In Rome

    Apr 3, 2015

    ‘Kidnap In Rome’ is far too preoccupied with the activities of the bumbling Italian trio who ‘aid’ Bruce Leung.

  • Master Of The Flying Guillotine

    Apr 21, 2015

    It’s hard not to be drawn into director Wang Yu’s eccentric world with its almost Python-esque techniques and fights.

  • One Armed Swordsman Against Nine Killers

    May 9, 2015

    A few moments of Wang Yu madness creep into the film to enliven things, but this is mostly a hard slog to get through.

  • Shaolin Temple

    May 23, 2015

    ‘Shaolin Temple’ is still a major achievement by a film-maker who was one of the true creators of the genre. There is, therefore, plenty to put this near the top of your viewing list.

  • Shaolin Wooden Men

    May 24, 2015

    It’s certainly not perfect and not among Jackie Chan’s best films, but there is ample entertainment value.

  • The 18 Bronzemen

    Jul 2, 2015

    Kuo lets the odd moment of peculiar editing affect an otherwise slick kung-fu drama; the final twenty minutes in particular seems far too rushed in comparison to the majority of the film.

  • The Blazing Temple

    Feb 24, 2015

    ‘The Blazing Temple’ is not Joseph Kuo’s best nor is it near his very pinnacle. It does, though, offer some solid enjoyment for patient viewers.

  • The New Shaolin Boxers

    May 4, 2015

    A splendid, fight packed romp that is a must for any fan of Fu Sheng. In fact it’s probably a must for any fan of kung fu films.
