• All For The Winner

    Feb 17, 2015

    ‘All For The Winner’ is a fun all-round movie with a particularly pleasing performance from Stephen Chow.

  • Bloodfist II

    Sep 16, 2016

    Obviously I still wouldn’t call it good in the traditional sense, but it is a familiar slice of cheese that certainly goes down easily.

  • Boiling Point

    Feb 25, 2015

    For newcomers it may prove a little difficult to get into and occasionally confusing but those already enjoying Kitano’s films will easily find several merits here that are synonymous with his best work.

  • Bullet In The Head

    Feb 27, 2015

    ‘Bullet in the Head’ still packs an enormous emotional punch and is very much one of the all time classics of Hong Kong cinema.

  • 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!).

  • China O’Brien 2

    Oct 18, 2016

    While it’ll never scale the heights of its Hong Kong counterparts of the day, this fast and fun sequel still delivers the Rothock, Norton and Cooke action goods.

  • Coup De Grace

    Mar 2, 2015

    Make no mistake, ‘Coup De Grace’ is not an award winner or even a genre masterpiece, but its modest goals are easily achieved.

  • Curry And Pepper

    Mar 4, 2015

    The film is a genuinely well-made buddy cop outing that has two great leading performances and a healthy helping of Hong Kong-styled heroic bloodshed.

  • Dragon Ball Z: The World’s Strongest

    Dec 31, 2016

    It’s nothing particularly new or flashy, but it is filled with enough action and comedy to leave you smiling once the final credits roll.

  • Dragon Ball Z: Tree Of Might

    Mar 28, 2017

    ‘Dragon Ball Z: Tree Of Might’ is probably the weakest of the movies up until this point, simply because it feels like a case of going through the motions.

  • Dragon From Russia

    Mar 8, 2015

    ‘Dragon from Russia’ is best described as a group of excellent fight sequences strung together by a rather muddled plot and some curious casting.

  • Front Page

    Mar 15, 2015

    Michael Hui uses moments of slapstick, social conscience and satire in conjunction with his flawless timing.

  • God Of Gamblers II

    Mar 21, 2015

    With lazy writing and weak comedy, ‘God Of Gamblers II’ often feels like little more than a typical Wong Jing cash grab.

  • Heart Into Hearts

    Mar 23, 2015

    ‘Heart Into Hearts’ is subsequently a perfect example of the law of diminishing returns, a sequel that tries to impress with its relative opulence but forgets how important its characters are.

  • Her Fatal Ways

    Mar 23, 2015

    Widely seen as Carol Cheng’s finest hour, ‘Her Fatal Ways’ manages to combine a number of qualities to create a very satisfying experience.

  • In The Line Of Duty V: Middle Man

    Mar 28, 2015

    The plot is all over the place and covers all areas mentioned in my opening paragraph, but as ever, it is only there to give people a reason to fight.

  • Island Of Fire

    Mar 30, 2015

    For a low budget, rushed production, the emotional content of the film and the quality of its cast save the day providing us with a kung fu influenced ‘Shawshank Redemption’ wannabe.

  • Kung Fu Vs. Acrobatic

    Apr 4, 2015

    ‘Kung Fu vs. Acrobatic’ is bizarre. Very importantly though, it is also an entertaining and pleasantly silly film.

  • License To Steal

    Apr 12, 2015

    Joyce Godenzi accepts the lead role with real grace and, like Michelle Yeoh before her, is a flawless mixture of fighting prowess and femininity.

  • Look Out, Officer!

    Apr 13, 2015

    ‘Look Out, Officer!’ provides no real surprises but it is a solid slice of light-hearted comedy that makes the most out of its impressive cast.

  • Magic Cop

    Apr 19, 2015

    There is much to enjoy about this film, and the ingenuity shown in many scenes is typical of HK, proving that it can offer a lot more than found in Hollywood no-brainers.

  • My Hero

    May 3, 2015

    ‘My Hero’ is unlikely to blow you away, but it’s still a decent 90’s gangster flick that benefits from Chow’s inclusion.

  • New Kids In Town

    May 4, 2015

    This is a modern day martial arts actioner in the style of the 80’s best, and should therefore be sought out by fans of similar fare. It will not disappoint.

  • No Retreat, No Surrender 3: Blood Brothers

    May 4, 2015

    Plenty of fight sequences, which are high-tempo, well choreographed affairs, if a little short by Hong Kong standards.
