• Beauty On Duty!

    Feb 22, 2015

    The main problem with ‘Beauty On Duty’ is that it’s essentially a distillation of the legion of unfunny moments that Wong Jing has created throughout his long career.

  • City Hunter

    Mar 1, 2015

    The combination of wacky humour and Chan’s superior comedic timing make ‘City Hunter’ a lot of fun to watch.

  • Fight Back To School 3

    Mar 12, 2015

    ‘Fight Back To School 3’ is a sad dip in quality for the series, with Jing reducing the all-important comedy routines to the lowest common denominator.

  • From Vegas To Macau

    Mar 15, 2015

    It’s best viewed as an occasionally enjoyable diversion that, on sporadic occasions, hints at how good a reboot of one of the 80s most iconic film series could be.

  • From Vegas To Macau II

    Sep 17, 2016

    ‘From Vegas To Macau II’ gets very mild commendation for a few nods to past glories and the occasional joke that doesn’t feel like waterboarding.

  • From Vegas To Macau III

    Oct 5, 2016

    Packed with the deluge of banality and popular references that will doubtlessly age the film well before it’s time, this third part is every bit as frustrating and lazy as the one that came before it.

  • Future Cops

    Mar 16, 2015

    ‘Future Cops’ is definitely worth a look for its crazy action and glittering cast, but be warned that the middle section may make you reach for the fast-forward button.

  • Future X-Cops

    Mar 16, 2015

    Seemingly endless scenes of two annoying kids, empty nods to whatever is currently in popular culture and a few moments of teeth-grindingly insincere pathos.

  • Girl With The Diamond Slipper

    Mar 17, 2015

    Though ‘Girl With The Diamond Slipper’ has a fine finale and some excellent physical comedy throughout, the decidedly flat middle section eats away at the viewer’s patience.

  • God Of Gamblers

    Mar 21, 2015

    It is a true genre-defining classic that will go down in Hong Kong cinema history as one of the greats.

  • God Of Gamblers 3 – The Early Stage

    Mar 19, 2015

    The film has neither the charm or magic of the original ‘God Of Gamblers’ and fails to competently put together a back story that is worthy of its hero.

  • God Of Gamblers II

    Mar 21, 2015

    With lazy writing and weak comedy, ‘God Of Gamblers II’ often feels like little more than a typical Wong Jing cash grab.

  • God Of Gamblers III: Back To Shanghai

    Mar 20, 2015

    Just when you thought the ‘God Of Gamblers’ series was dead and buried, Wong Jing somehow manages to find a pretty nifty way of bringing it back.

  • High Risk

    Mar 25, 2015

    This action comedy is undoubtedly at its best when Jet Li is given centre stage and allowed to show off his smooth physical moves.

  • Hong Kong Playboys

    Mar 25, 2015

    This is not a comic masterpiece and doesn’t amuse in quite the manner that it imagines it does, but with a leading man of Fu Sheng’s calibre this is almost to be forgiven.

  • I Love Lolanto

    Feb 10, 2018

    Something of a minor undiscovered gem, it’s not hard to see why ‘I Love Lolanto’ was a box office hit in its day and remains well worth seeking out as a latter-day diversion.

  • Kung Fu Cult Master

    Apr 4, 2015

    The pairing of Jet Li and Sammo should have spawned a masterpiece, but instead the audience is left with this disheartening effort.

  • Kung Fu Mahjong

    Apr 4, 2015

    If you approach a film of this nature, with this cast, with this storyline and with this lack of imagination, there is very little sympathy you (or indeed I) should expect.

  • Kung Fu Vs. Acrobatic

    Apr 4, 2015

    ‘Kung Fu vs. Acrobatic’ is bizarre. Very importantly though, it is also an entertaining and pleasantly silly film.

  • Last Hero In China

    Apr 5, 2015

    It just appears that Wong Jing wanted to please everyone by cramming the storyline with action, crazed innuendo and sudden plot twists.

  • Legend Of A Fighter

    Apr 6, 2015

    Considering they both draw inspiration from the same source, it’s no surprise that ‘Legend Of A Fighter’ often feels a little too similar to ‘Fist Of Fury’.

  • Magic Crystal

    Apr 19, 2015

    Wong Jing manages to restrain his usual vulgarity and blend together some genuinely amusing comic scenes with an enviable amount of superior fight choreography.

  • Magnificent Butcher

    Apr 19, 2015

    This film could be recommended alone for it’s exceptional fight action, but as you’d expect from this cast there’s much more on offer.

  • My Kung Fu Sweetheart

    May 3, 2015

    One’s enjoyment of ‘My Kung Fu Sweetheart’ depends on one’s appreciation, or tolerance, for Wong Jing’s films.
