• 25 Kids And A Dad

    Mar 11, 2015

    Director Huang Hong conjures up a few powerful moments that even the most cynical viewer will be touched by, utilising his excellent cast and some exceptional village scenery.

  • A Tale Of Two Sisters

    Jun 9, 2015

    If you are willing to substitute blood for brains and real heart for cheap scares, this movie will be one you will remember long after you see it.

  • Anna In Kung Fu Land

    Feb 17, 2015

    It’s doubtful whether even non-action audiences will be fully satisfied by this entertaining, but insubstantial production

  • Azumi

    Feb 19, 2015

    It may be a different genre but Kitamura proves he is not just a one trick pony and still knows how to successfully shoot the action and keep the characters interesting throughout.

  • Battle Royale II

    Feb 21, 2015

    The core concept remains relatively fresh and the switch in style to more of a war-like epic works in the film’s favour.

  • Battlefield Baseball

    Feb 21, 2015

    Aside from the odd comedic highlight, ‘Battlefield Baseball’ feels more like a swing and a miss than a home run.

  • Belly Of The Beast

    Feb 22, 2015

    A painfully generic kidnap/rescue flick with nothing in the plot or script to rise above most other straight to video fare.

  • Bulletproof Monk

    Feb 27, 2015

    Probably best described as a cliché-ridden mess that is condemned by a combination of a poor script, bad casting and laughable action.

  • Cala, My Dog!

    Feb 28, 2015

    ‘Cala, My Dog!’ is, as so many modern Chinese films are, a way of observing a misunderstood country on a detailed level.

  • Cradle 2 The Grave

    Mar 3, 2015

    The editing is enough to cause seasickness and confusion, while Jet’s opponents are nothing but meathead wrestlers and a criminally underused Mark Dacascos.

  • Dragon Loaded 2003

    Mar 8, 2015

    ‘Dragon Loaded 2003’ is a typical Hong Kong comedy with a little injection of romance, but never rises above the ordinary.

  • Drunken Monkey

    Mar 9, 2015

    The choreography is refreshing and innovative though the storyline is badly developed and cannot fall back on well-written characters.

  • In Hell

    Mar 28, 2015

    Van Damme puts in a very strong leading performance and Lam helps elevate some mediocre material to a much higher status.

  • Ju-On: The Grudge 2

    Apr 2, 2015

    While ‘Ju-on 2’ is another rewarding journey through a landscape of fear and loathing, now is the time for its creator to terrorise avenues new.

  • Kill Bill: Volume 1

    Apr 3, 2015

    ‘Kill Bill: Volume 1’ is a great tribute to Asian action cinema that mixes Tarantino’s stylised violence with some top Yuen Woo-Ping choreography.

  • Kung Fu Master Is My Grandma!

    Apr 4, 2015

    In its own way it is quite a diverting drama that has its moments of chemistry between the two leads. It’s just unfortunate that the b-movie direction undermines the hard work of the cast.

  • Looking For Mister Perfect

    Apr 13, 2015

    ‘Looking For Mister Perfect’ is the kind of light and fluffy film that one would associate with Wong Jing or Joe Ma and not the man responsible for savage hits like ‘City On Fire’ and ‘Full Contact’.

  • Lost In Time

    Apr 14, 2015

    With characterisation so strongly emphasised in the film, it’s encouraging to see that both of the pivotal figures are empathetic enough to make Derek Yee’s goal successful.

  • Love For All Seasons

    Apr 15, 2015

    The concept may take a little getting used to, but ‘Love For All Seasons’ is a superior vehicle for Sammi Cheng and an enjoyable mixture of zany plot twists, comedy and romance.

  • Love Undercover 2: Love Mission

    Apr 16, 2015

    Joe Ma’s goal is to create a fun comedy that highlights the charm of Miriam Yeung and absorbs the viewer in her outlandish adventures – in this regard the film is a definite success.

  • Memory Of The Youth

    Apr 22, 2015

    It’s always good to see a film about children with enough depth and maturity to appeal to everyone.

  • My Dream Girl

    May 3, 2015

    I’ve lost 90 minutes of my life that could’ve been more productively spent on getting rid of those pesky nostril hairs. Make sure you don’t make the same mistake.

  • My Lucky Star

    May 3, 2015

    If only Vincent Kok had nurtured the early comedy of ‘My Lucky Star’ and allowed the two stars to develop their love, this could have been above the norm.

  • My Wife Is A Gangster 2

    May 3, 2015

    ‘My Wife Is A Gangster 2’ may have lost the edge in the action department, but it’s definitely a more competent all-round effort.
