    The pacing is just right, the locations are skilfully used and Liu has taken a deceptively simple story and given it layers of interest beneath.

  • Redcon-1

    Mixing the zombie, martial arts and men-on-a-mission genres, ‘Redcon-1’ adopts a take no prisoners approach and rarely lets up over its almost 2 hour run time.

  • The Way Home

    A truly beautiful tale of personal growth and self-discovery that is more than perfectly in tune with many Asian ideals of family and the implicit importance of such.

  • The Unity Of Heroes

    ‘The Unity of Heroes’ is a slipshod update of the Wong Fei Hong myth, a film wholly lacking in not only chemistry but also everything else that made the Tsui Hark chapters so influential.

  • Black Water

    , ,  • 

    Low budget, straight-forward, though with a couple of unexpected twists and turns, this was a fun and surprisingly action packed ride.

  • Red Eye

    A modest South Korean ghost story, albeit one that retains vestigial hints of promise that only serve to indicate how great it could have been.
