• 14 Blades

    Jul 2, 2015

    It has numerous nods to the Shaw Brothers classics and harks back to those swordplay flicks of yesteryear, making you smile, cry, jump for joy and shout like a banshee, like any good martial arts film should.

  • Anna In Kung Fu Land

    Feb 17, 2015

    It’s doubtful whether even non-action audiences will be fully satisfied by this entertaining, but insubstantial production

  • Bruce Lee, My Brother

    Feb 26, 2015

    Those jonesing for action may feel the pace sag, but ‘Bruce Lee, My Brother’ is a brilliant period family drama.

  • Dragon Squad

    Mar 9, 2015

    Even though it is littered with flaws, I feel I can’t give ‘Dragon Squad’ the complete thumbs down as it is one of those films that could easily pass for a guilty pleasure.

  • Kung Fu Jungle

    Apr 4, 2015

    ‘Kung Fu Killer’, despite its B-movie title and the odd moment of cheesiness, comes very close to bringing back the elation one felt when watching golden era Hong Kong action cinema.

  • Let’s Sing Along

    Apr 12, 2015

    The driving force of the film is Dayo Wong’s strutting performance – an aspect that viewers will either love or loathe – and the outrageous scenes of various losers battling on the karaoke stage.

  • 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.

  • Painted Skin

    May 10, 2015

    Not to everyone’s tastes, could have been a little shorter and hardcore Yen fans may be let down by the lack of dynamic hand-to-hand combat but ‘Painted Skin’ is still a stylish slice of fantasy filmmaking.

  • Runaway

    May 19, 2015

    Some of the more eccentric moments do inspire a wry smile, but nothing to fully salvage the end product.

  • The Attractive One

    Feb 19, 2015

    When the closing credits rolled, I opined that I had lost a full ninety minutes that would’ve been better used watching one of these sub-genres more accomplished works.

  • The Great Magician

    Mar 21, 2015

    Though ‘The Great Magician’ recalls films like ‘The Prestige’ and ‘The Illusionist’, Derek Yee’s offering is much lighter in tone.

  • 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.

  • Three Kingdoms: Resurrection Of The Dragon

    Jun 11, 2015

    ‘Three Kingdoms: Resurrection Of The Dragon’ is a mixture of well shot conflict, stirring heroism and flawed drama.

  • Undercover Hidden Dragon

    Jun 19, 2015

    ‘Undercover Hidden Dragon’ is better than the past few Ronald Cheng films, but not as consistently entertaining as ‘Super Model’, perhaps the benchmark for his comedy.
