• 13: Game Of Death

    Jul 2, 2015

    Starting off as a black comedy, things soon turn more sinister, and gory, in this inventive and must see slice of Thai cinema.

  • 2 Become 1

    Jul 2, 2015

    Full of negative characterisation, sloppily handled sentiment and rudderless direction, this is a film that drags along like the walking dead and manages to smother its noble intentions with complete indecision.

  • 200 Pounds Beauty

    Jul 3, 2015

    A typically operatic Korean rom-com where subtlety is elbowed aside in favour of ‘My Sassy Girl’ style emotional fireworks.

  • A Battle Of Wits

    Feb 21, 2015

    ‘A Battle Of Wits’ is that rare work that is exciting, tense and yet is an introspective on the violence, war and conformity.

  • A Millionaire’s First Love

    Apr 23, 2015

  • Contour

    Mar 2, 2015

    ‘Contour’ is a well paced, fun film where you can feel the the makers enthusiasm and energy coming through.

  • Curse Of The Golden Flower

    ‘Curse Of The Golden Flower’ is another sign of the growing confidence of Chinese cinema, the imagination of Zhang Yimou and the iconic status of Gong Li and Chow Yun-Fat.

  • Death Note

    Mar 6, 2015

    Right from the opening, it’s blatantly obvious that ‘Death Note’ is skipping some of the more important and enjoyable aspects of the story.

  • Dragon Tiger Gate

    Mar 9, 2015

    Don’t compare it to Yen and Yip’s ‘SPL’ or ‘Flashpoint’, just sit back and enjoy a good old fashioned comic book blockbuster with heaps of kung fu action.

  • Dynamite Warrior

    Mar 9, 2015

    Fun if frivolous, ‘Dynamite Warrior’ is not the best of its kind but worthwhile for the awesome combat.

  • Exiled

    Mar 10, 2015

    ‘Exiled’ is a riveting portrayal of a group of friends sticking by one another as their once chosen profession threatens to kill them all.

  • Fatal Contact

    Mar 11, 2015

    Like most martial arts movies to emerge out of Hong Kong in recent years, there are flashes of the talent involved but it’s not nearly as entertaining as it should have been.
