• Big Bullet

    Feb 23, 2015

    Although the state of Hong Kong cinema is much approved now, it’s hard to forget the wretched state just a few years ago. ‘Big Bullet’ really stood out when it was released and remains a class act.

  • Black Mask

    Feb 23, 2015

    The action is still impressive, and deserves 4 stars, but the direction, annoying camera work and lack of real plot drag it down into the 3 star category.

  • Bloodfist VIII: Hard Way Out

    Oct 25, 2017

    ‘Hard Way Out’ is a sloppily cobbled together mess that is littered with awful genre cliches and a collection of very bad actors.

  • Bloodsport II: The Next Kumite

    Feb 24, 2015

    ‘Bloodsport II’ is an improvement over its predecessor due to the greater quantity (and quality) of the action.

  • Book Of Swords

    Feb 25, 2015

    ‘Book Of Swords’ offers very little of substance and is really only suited to hardcore Mortal Kombat fanboys.

  • 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.

  • Dragon From Shaolin

    Mar 8, 2015

    On paper, this looked a winner: Yuen Biao in an Indiana Jones role fighting an assortment of villains in search of an ancient relic. On celluloid though, this is a grand turkey.

  • First Option

    Mar 13, 2015

    ‘First Option’ is definitely a high scorer on the cheese scale, but luckily it’s also loaded with some original action scenes that make it worth your while.

  • First Strike

    Mar 13, 2015

    Vitally, ‘First Strike’ is still full of the energy and invention that leaves so many other action films pale in comparison.

  • 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.

  • Forbidden City Cop

    Mar 14, 2015

    Avid fans of Chow Sing-Chi’s humour can also rest assured as this is one of his sharpest films.

  • God Of Gamblers 3 – The Early Stage

    Mar 19, 2015

    The film has neither the charm or magic of the original ‘God Of Gamblers’ and fails to competently put together a back story that is worthy of its hero.
