• 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.

  • Bleeding Steel

    Apr 20, 2018

    ‘Bleeding Steel’ starts with promise and then refuses to flesh out any of the plot details, leaving us bewildered shortly after our interest had piqued.

  • 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

    Apr 14, 2017

    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.

  • Kung Fu Yoga

    Feb 20, 2017

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

  • Love Education

    Apr 3, 2018

    A poignant family drama with dashes of dry humour, ‘Love Education’ is a film that director and star Sylvia Chang can be suitably proud of.

  • Midnight Runners

    Feb 22, 2018

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

  • Never Say Die

    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.
