• A Loner

    Aug 18, 2017

    ‘A Loner’ is therefore a solid, thoughtful meditation on a traditionally Western problem that is now creeping into the affluent East, but should have been more than its good intentions.

  • Cook Up A Storm

    Jul 15, 2017

    The varied cast which includes Tse, Ge You and CN Blue member Jung Yong-Hwa make it an appealing 90 minutes of over-the-top cook-offs, snappy comedy and melodrama.

  • Duckweed

    Jun 13, 2017

    There aren’t any surprises in ‘Duckweed’, but for a well made feel-good film it’s about as good as we’ll see this year.

  • Edge Of Innocence

    Sep 20, 2017

    ‘End of Innocence’ won’t be counted among the great thrillers to come out of Asia in recent years, but it’s a more than competent effort and generates real tension before the credits roll.

  • Free And Easy

    Aug 14, 2017

    ‘Free & Easy’ is a moderately amusing one minute sketch stretching to feature length and you can feel every one of its ninety minutes pass as if they’re being pulled from your own flesh.

    Those who give it a chance will be rewarded with a well made, at times thought provoking and overall entertaining version of a Japanese classic.

    It gives me no pleasure to say that I would even consider, if heavily medicated, watching ‘The Spy Next Door’ again rather than this.

    Fresh, funny, exciting and full of snappy action, ‘Midnight Runners’ is a joyous ride, rarely missing a beat from first frame until last.

    Mar 1, 2018

    There is a solid mix of winning visual gags, one-liners and absurdism that makes ‘Never Say Die’ entertaining even for those of us who do not speak Mandarin.

  • Our Time Will Come

    Jan 19, 2018

    ‘Our Time Will Come’ is another excellent Ann Hui film, but it’s Zhou Xun’s aptitude that lingers after the running time ends.

  • Savage Dog

    Nov 23, 2017

    A pulpy period actioner is a good way to describe ‘Savage Dog’ but come the second half, the film veers into full on exploitation madness as the violence is ramped up.

  • Shock Wave

    Nov 20, 2017

    ‘Shock Wave’ is an above average Andy Lau action film that shows that the star can still be called on to play the tough hero when needed.

  • The Adventurers

    Jan 1, 2018

    ‘The Adventurers’ itself is a breezy romp with a good cast, some smart action sequences and enough momentum to make its duration enjoyable on a standard level.

  • The Foreigner

    Dec 24, 2017

    Classy, tense, complex and delivering some fine tuned action scenes: ‘The Foreigner’ is a well crafted film that gives Chan one of his best roles.

  • The Tag-Along 2

    Sep 25, 2017

    Much more than a trashy quickie horror sequel than many might be expecting, ‘The Tag-Along 2’┬áis an entertaining ghostly romp that when on form, expertly blends drama and frights.

  • The Taste Of Rice Flower

    Oct 25, 2017
