• A Chinese Odyssey Part 1: Pandora’s Box

    Feb 28, 2015

    Great all-round entertainment that shows Stephen Chow and the Monkey King myth at their finest.

  • A Chinese Odyssey Part 2: Cinderella

    May 3, 2015

    If you enjoyed the first ‘A Chinese Odyssey’, then this second part is pretty much guaranteed to please.

  • Best Of The Best 3: No Turning Back

    Feb 22, 2015

    Basically what the movie boils down to is your typified B-movie that is fun while it lasts, mainly thanks to Rhee, but is unlikely to leave a significant impression.

  • Bloodfist VI: Ground Zero

    Jun 27, 2017

    If the idea of a ‘Die Hard’ clone with sci-fi channel levels of acting and action sounds appealing, then you may get a kick or two out of the low budget cheesiness of ‘Bloodfist VI’.

  • Bloodfist VII: Manhunt

    Aug 14, 2017

    ‘Manhunt’ travels the same well-worn path as its predecessors (particularly ‘Bloodfist IV’) with a very predictable plot and some low grade action.

  • Crying Freeman

    Mar 4, 2015

    Crying Freeman’ can be commended on several levels, as it manages to stick faithfully to the source material while providing a stylish, action-packed adventure that highlights the skills of fan favourite Mark Dacascos.

  • Cyclo

    Mar 4, 2015

    If you give it a go it can be a rewarding and all together different movie viewing experience and shows the director is a gifted talent who can switch from gentle and beautiful to the dark and the violent with ease and skill.

  • Don’t Give A Damn

    Mar 8, 2015

    ‘Don’t Give A Damn’ provides some good action and a distracting 100 minutes, but don’t expect another Sammo masterpiece.

  • Fallen Angels

    Mar 10, 2015

    ‘Fallen Angels’ may be nice to look at, but may be equally interesting to watch with the sound off as it has very little real soul beyond its sleek facade.

  • Fist Of The North Star

    Mar 13, 2015

    Although far from perfect, ‘Fist Of The North Star’ is still a relatively fun adaptation that tries its best to service both fans of the source and martial arts movies in general.

  • Gonin

    Mar 21, 2015

    If you manage to remain interested while the film establishes a story and can tolerate the odd sense of the macabre, then ‘Gonin’ does provide a few flashes of excellence.

  • High Risk

    Mar 25, 2015

    This action comedy is undoubtedly at its best when Jet Li is given centre stage and allowed to show off his smooth physical moves.

  • Love In The Time Of Twilight

    Apr 15, 2015

    ‘Love In The Time Of Twilight’ is the kind of film that starts awkwardly but increases in stature as the story continues.

  • Mortal Kombat

    Apr 30, 2015

    While it is undoubtedly still flawed, ‘Mortal Kombat’ remains one of the most admirable big screen video game adaptations and a competent American Martial Arts movie.

  • My Father Is A Hero

    May 3, 2015

    ‘My Father Is A Hero’ provides some adrenalin pumping set-pieces, notably a classic scene where Li takes on a dozen of the villain’s lackies with a pair of tonfa.

  • Only Fools Fall In Love

    May 9, 2015

    The over-the-top style that is often associated with this sub-genre of comedy may not be to everyone’s taste, but it remains entertaining and raises the odd chuckle.

  • Red Wolf

    May 17, 2015

    While it remains watchable, ‘Red Wolf’ really suffers from its own inability to create anything fresh.

  • Rumble In The Bronx

    May 19, 2015

    The action is far superior to that of any American made film on ten times the budget, and shows Chan at his best shortly after the excellent ‘Drunken Master 2’.

  • Savate

    May 21, 2015

    The action is typically American. Gruner displays a repertoire of 3 different kicks at a less than blistering pace, while his opponents are even less impressive.

  • Score

    May 21, 2015

    Not that I am expecting high art from what is a low budget Japanese action film but this film really is awful.

  • Sea Root

    May 21, 2015

    Lau Ching-Wan is simply stunning in the role of Root, putting so much delicate charm and humility in his part that it’s impossible for the viewer not to empathise with him.

  • Sixty Million Dollar Man

    May 26, 2015

    ‘Sixty Million Dollar Man’ is a lazy and disappointingly unfunny outing for all concerned.

  • Summer Snow

    Jun 4, 2015

    Its gritty, truthful tone and flawless cast manage to take a sub-genre fraught with cliché and melodrama and give it a provocative resonance that is so very precious.

  • Superfights

    Jun 5, 2015

    Probably the hardest to find of Seasonal’s American produced pictures, ‘Superfights’ is great fun despite the super cheese factor and worth seeing for the awesome martial arts.
