• An Empress And The Warriors

    Mar 10, 2015

    ‘An Empress And The Warriors’ is enticing enough to divert the attention, but without anything substantial within the duration it is quickly forgotten.

  • Big Bullet

    Feb 23, 2015

    Although the state of Hong Kong cinema is much approved now, it’s hard to forget the wretched state just a few years ago. ‘Big Bullet’ really stood out when it was released and remains a class act.

  • City Under Siege

    Mar 1, 2015

    ‘City Under Siege’ plods along to something of an anti-climax after nearly two hours, never achieving logical pacing or suspense.

  • Dial D For Demons

    Apr 26, 2018

    ‘Dial D for Demons’ is a modest but effective Hong Kong ghost story and generates just enough suspense to keep one on edge until the finale.

  • Dr. Wai In “The Scripture With No Words”

    Mar 8, 2015

    The action is about only thing that makes ‘Dr. Wai’ worth watching, with Li on typically fine form for a couple of battles with some interesting opponents.

  • Future Cops

    Mar 16, 2015

  • 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.

  • Love For All Seasons

    Apr 15, 2015

    The concept may take a little getting used to, but ‘Love For All Seasons’ is a superior vehicle for Sammi Cheng and an enjoyable mixture of zany plot twists, comedy and romance.

  • 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.

  • Swordsman II

    Jun 6, 2015

    The viewer is treated to a visual feast that fully sketches out this almost mythical setting – kudos once more to director and cinematographer.

  • The East Is Red

    Mar 9, 2015

    ‘The East Is Red’ ends the popular series with a visual bang that pummels the viewer relentlessly. Unfortunately the exercise is very much one of style over substance and the overall effect is a bewildering one.
