• 252: Signal Of Life

    Jul 3, 2015

    This Japanese blockbuster is like a head on collision between a big budget disaster flick and a Lifetime/Hallmark/True Movies film of the week.

  • 4bia

    May 11, 2015

    Anthology horror gets the Thai treatment in this nifty, four story feature from some of Thailand’s top filmmakers.

  • A Man Who Was Superman

    Apr 20, 2015

    The destination will probably be inevitable to you 5 minutes into the movie, but that is unlikely to stop the tears rolling down your cheeks come closing credits and the journey, not the destination is the thing of greatest importance.

  • All About Women

    Feb 16, 2015

    ‘All About Women’ is hard work, something I never thought I’d be writing about a Tsui Hark film.

  • An Empress And The Warriors

    Mar 10, 2015

    ‘An Empress And The Warriors’ is enticing enough to divert the attention, but without anything substantial within the duration it is quickly forgotten.

  • Assassin Rising

    Feb 18, 2015

    Not quite as bad as the above descriptions might make it sound but far too barmy, slapdash and low rent to be fully successful with its intentions.

  • Axis Of War: Night Raid

    Feb 19, 2015

    Despite the odd dip into cheesiness, lethargic storytelling and over earnestness, ‘Night Raid’ is still an enjoyable slice of war action with an intriguing story and some likeable characters at its core.

  • Bangkok Dangerous

    Feb 20, 2015

    This lacklustre and also very sluggish remake, comes from Nicholas Cage and the Pang Brothers once again and offers nothing new to say and pretty much suffers from the same problems as the original.

  • Bodyguard: A New Beginning

    Feb 25, 2015

    It may be a little rough around the edges but its ambition and heart is in the right place and if given a chance, ‘Bodyguard: A New Beginning’ is an often rewarding experience.

  • Broken Path

    Feb 26, 2015

    If you have enjoyed Sakamoto’s and the Alpha boy’s previous efforts, and like your martial arts tough and full on, then ‘Broken Path’ is a definite recommendation.

  • Butterfly Lovers

    Feb 27, 2015

    ‘Butterfly Lovers’ is a forgettable version of a legend that deserves a definitive screen portrayal – it has moments of interest, but proves to be an unevenly yoked movie.

  • Cape No. 7

    Feb 28, 2015

    ‘Cape No.7’ is an ensemble production whose success is tied up with its exploration of Taiwan’s southernmost area, its use of localised flavour and copious amounts of colloquial humour.

  • Chanbara Beauty

    Feb 28, 2015

    ‘Chanbara Beauty’ is an uncomplicated, intermittently fun, undead actioner that will please fans of the genre and the videogames.

  • Chanbara Striptease

    Feb 28, 2015

    ‘Chanbara Striptease’ is about topless women fighting with swords of which it has many scenes of, so if you want to see such a thing, then watch this film.

  • Chocolate

    Feb 28, 2015

    ‘Chocolate’ is excellent action entertainment from start to finish, and fight fans will be delighted to see that Pinkaew and Rittikrai haven’t lost their touch.

  • CJ7

    Mar 1, 2015

    ‘CJ7’ is a warm-hearted sci-fi comedy with solid special effects and a winning performance by newcomer Xu Jiao.

  • Connected

    Mar 2, 2015

    ‘Connected’ is outrageously entertaining and maintains its energetic momentum throughout.

  • Cyborg She

    Mar 4, 2015

    Kwak Jae-Young has a PhD in stirring emotions and this film has more heart-pulling moments of manipulative magic than a room full of kittens playing with balls of string.

  • Death Bell

    Mar 6, 2015

    ‘Death Bell’ is certainly not the best the genre has to offer, but it is a harmless little frightfest that has a few hints of ‘Saw’ and ‘Battle Royale’ thrown in.

  • Departures

    Mar 7, 2015

    Tackling a taboo subject with maturity and outstanding sensitivity, it should be of no great surprise to see ‘Departures’ striking a chord with audiences around the globe.

  • Eye For An Eye

    Mar 10, 2015

    It may not be refreshing, it may not be especially exciting, yet ‘Eye For an Eye’ has a few aces up its sleeve.

  • Fatal Move

    Mar 11, 2015

    ‘Fatal Move’ is most certainly flawed and could have been a lot tighter and less meandering. Yet it still manages to be an entertaining slice of gangster action that entertains if never really ignites.

  • Geisha Assassin

    Mar 16, 2015

    If you fancy watching a series of fun fights that feature some bizarre opponents then ‘Geisha Assassin’ is certainly as good a choice as any.

  • Happy Flight

    Mar 22, 2015

    ‘Happy Flight’ benefits from the versatility of Haruka Ayase – as good in a comedy as she has been in action flicks like ‘Ichi’ – and a variety of low-key characters who give the story a charm of its own.
