• Dance Of A Dream

    Mar 4, 2015

    ‘Dance Of A Dream’ is an enjoyable, yet forgettable romantic comedy that is an amble display of the good and the bad of Andrew Lau as director.

  • Final Romance

    Mar 13, 2015

    Mak paces the narrative in a very delicate way, choosing to build the romance between his leads rather than just rely on ‘big scenes’ to do the work for him.

  • Gen-Y Cops

    Mar 16, 2015

    For all the plot holes and script deficiencies, this is an excellent slice of Hong Kong entertainment with a return to the edict of fun film-making that made the 80’s stand out.

  • Infernal Affairs

    Mar 31, 2015

    The film has one of the best stories I’ve seen in quite a while and the cast and crew all produce some of their finest work to date.

  • Initial D

    Mar 29, 2015

    The linear narrative and lack of real danger in the story may limit what would otherwise be a sure-fire hit.

  • Lady Cop & Papa Crook

    Apr 5, 2015

    Interest is created in ‘Lady Cop & Papa Crook’ by its style and verve, yet the story and characters are successful in doing the opposite.

  • Once A Gangster

    May 6, 2015

    It’s a pleasure to see Jordan Chan given a lead role in a major production and his cowardly cook is a delightful antithesis to ‘Chicken’ from the series that made his name.

  • Overheard

    May 10, 2015

    A well-scripted, superbly executed thriller with a formidable triumvirate at the centre, this could well be one of the best genre films to have come from Asia in the past few years.

  • Overheard 2

    May 10, 2015

    While ‘Overheard’ was an excellent homage to the great American conspiracy films of the 70s, the in-name-only sequel is a more routine two hours with a far less incisive denouement.

  • Overheard 3

    May 10, 2015

    Wordy, but with nothing to say, this is a verbose movie populated by monumentally dull characters and bland ‘twists’ that fail to hold the attention.

  • Stolen Love

    Jun 1, 2015

    Alan Mak’s uninvolving film lacks a real narrative hook and an empathetic romance, but most of all it lacks the needed sentiment that covers a multitude of cinematic sins.

  • Sunshine Cops

    Jun 4, 2015

    The great on-screen chemistry of the two leads help this stylish and hugely enjoyable caper move along at a leisurely, but absorbing pace.

  • The Lion Roars

    Apr 12, 2015

    ‘The Lion Roars’ is slickly produced, well performed by its beloved leading couple and not without its moments of amusement.

  • The Lost Bladesman

    Apr 14, 2015

    Eschewing any flashiness for a more old school and care given to character and pacing approach, Chong and Mak craft a beautifully shot and finely acted period piece.

  • The Silent War

    May 26, 2015

    Although nobody could say ‘The Silent War’ has a vice-like grip on the viewer, it features a few moments of genuine excitement and gathers quite a momentum by the final third.

  • Tokyo Raiders

    Jun 15, 2015

    ‘Tokyo Raiders’ therefore is a top-notch piece of entertainment that, with a little more care in certain departments, could have been even better.

  • United We Stand, And Swim

    Jun 19, 2015

    The enjoyment that is had from viewing this modest, yet mostly rewarding production is that it is a character piece that avoids action or histrionics.
