• The Housemaid

    Feb 19, 2018

    Director Derek Nguyen orchestrates some nifty scares and some lush visuals with his Eastern ‘The Woman in Black’ vibe and leading lady Kate Nhung also keeps everything on track with her committed performance.

  • 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.

    Bravo to everyone behind ‘The Red Turtle’ for reminding this reviewer just how powerful simple, intelligent film-making can be without the bells and whistles.

  • Three

    While the hype machine surrounding the film may damper some viewers overall enjoyment, there is no doubting ‘Train to Busan’ is an exhilarating zombie thrill ride, crafted with care and a commitment to carnage.

    Dec 20, 2017

    90s style action returns full force in the fast and fun ‘Ultimate Justice’, which features a fair share of familiar martial arts faces from the decade.

  • Weeds On Fire

    Nov 6, 2017

    More than workmanlike though never content with just being another sports film, ‘Weeds On Fire’ is an encouraging sign of life in Hong Kong cinema.

  • Will You Be There?

    Dec 24, 2017

    Based on the book by French author Guillaume Musso, ‘Will You Be There?’ is the kind of time travel drama that never skips a beat.
