    Shi Runjiu’s film is a modest production with flaws in certain key areas, but remains a genuinely interesting film.

  • A Man Called Hero

    Apr 20, 2015

    Andrew Lau has a very obvious formula for making comic book adaptations and it’s one that is ultimately not very satisfying.

  • Adrenaline Drive

    Feb 16, 2015

    ‘Adrenaline Drive’ is often hilarious, sometimes filled with genuine tension and with a humanity at its core that is a delightful addition to the many other strengths.

  • Body Weapon

    Feb 25, 2015

    Dark cinematography, powerful scenes, politically incorrect humour and good fight choreography combine to make this an entertaining film, but one you are only likely to watch once.

    It’s a highly accomplished and touching rom-com that shows he is not just a funny face.

  • Love Wind, Love Song

    Apr 16, 2015

    ‘Love Wind, Love Song’ is given extra impetus by the performance of its stars, in particular Ko So-Young who is effortlessly charming as the lovestruck Young-seo.
