Overheard 3May 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.
Red CliffMay 16, 2015
Despite having no conclusion of its own, all of the groundwork of the characterisation and story make the next chapter an exciting prospect.
Red Cliff: Part IIMay 16, 2015
Part 2 is certainly the superior one, but both deserve individual credit for reviving the dying embers of John Woo’s career.

The PromiseMay 16, 2015
It will lose most of it’s audience by the 20 minute mark and even those that do manage to stay engaged past that point will likely be sleeping by the time our heroes ‘Fly away into the sunset’.
The Silent WarMay 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.
