• Call Of Heroes

    Dec 19, 2016

    Superbly paced, mounted and executed, one should simply sit back and enjoy this kung fu spectacle.

  • Cold War II

    Sep 24, 2016

    Like the first film, it is a slick and intense thriller that boasts solid performances from its cast.

  • From Vegas To Macau III

    Oct 5, 2016

    Packed with the deluge of banality and popular references that will doubtlessly age the film well before it’s time, this third part is every bit as frustrating and lazy as the one that came before it.

  • Hard Target 2

    Oct 2, 2016

    As good as a belated direct-to-DVD sequel to a John Woo/Jean Claude Van Damme classic gets.

  • Kickboxer: Vengeance

    Dec 5, 2016

    Certainly tries to recapture some of the magic of the genre defining original but unfortunately ends up a somewhat shallow effort.

  • Master Of The Drunken Fist: Beggar So

    Feb 14, 2017

    A ho-hum attempt at old school martial arts that succumbs to plodding pacing and dull storytelling.

  • Master Of The Shadowless Kick: Wong Kei-Ying

    Feb 16, 2017

    A few fight scenes pull one back from catatonia, but mostly this is a failure without the luxury of budget constraints to blame its incompetence on.

  • My Best Friend’s Wedding

    Mar 15, 2017

    This may not be revolutionary film-making, but ‘My Best Friend’s Wedding’ is ninety minutes of entertainment that will keep a smile on your face.

  • Railroad Tigers

    Jan 6, 2017

    An often spectacular and thoroughly enjoyable action comedy with a range of characters that the audience really begins to care about.

  • Skiptrace

    Nov 12, 2016

    It’s almost as if the makers watched ‘Rush Hour’, ‘Shanghai Noon’ and even ‘Around The World In Eighty Days’ and thought how utilitarian it might be just to throw various elements from these into one puzzling lump.

  • The Bodyguard

    Sep 28, 2016

    It’s not a perfect film by any means, but it succeeds in painting an interesting portrait of an aging gentleman looking for a little redemption.

  • The Great Wall

    Feb 28, 2017

    ‘The Great Wall’ packs in a monster amount of large scale action as Damon, Jing et al take on the horde of monsters in ever increasingly elaborate ways.

  • The Mermaid

    Dec 12, 2016

    ‘The Mermaid’ has the feel-good factor and is probably as good a rom-com as you’re likely to see this year. Yet that somehow doesn’t seem enough from a film-maker like Chow Sing-Chi.

  • Three

    Feb 7, 2017

    ‘Three’ could be the least involving, least exciting action thriller in recent memory. That it has Johnnie To behind it is a particularly sad thing to report.

  • Time Raiders

    Nov 28, 2016

    While ‘Time Raiders’ starts with competent special effects it descends to a level of incompetence that makes ‘Sharknado’ look cutting edge.
