• Lady Cop & Papa Crook

    Apr 5, 2015

    Interest is created in ‘Lady Cop & Papa Crook’ by its style and verve, yet the story and characters are successful in doing the opposite.

  • Legendary Assassin

    Apr 11, 2015

    Not a complete disaster but by no means the showcase that Wu Jing was no doubt hoping it would be.

  • Let The Bullets Fly

    Apr 12, 2015

    Entertaining in parts with a game cast on good form but frustratingly uneven and unsatisfying a film as a whole, ‘Let the Bullets Fly’ lays on the political subtext but forgets to have fun with it.

  • Looking For Mister Perfect

    Apr 13, 2015

    ‘Looking For Mister Perfect’ is the kind of light and fluffy film that one would associate with Wong Jing or Joe Ma and not the man responsible for savage hits like ‘City On Fire’ and ‘Full Contact’.

  • New Police Story

    May 4, 2015

    The performances from all parties are excellent, and Jackie has reinstalled a little faith in me that he is still capable of making a good action movie.

    After my thoughts that he might well be resigned to uninspiring Hollywood fodder, I’m glad to eat humble pie and say that ‘Shanghai Knights’ contains some of his best action in recent years.

  • Shanghai Noon

    May 23, 2015

    ‘Shanghai Noon’ is not as action packed or original as some of Chan’s early efforts, but it is still one of his best American outings to date.

  • Shaolin

    May 23, 2015

    The dramatic framework is sturdy enough to make ‘Shaolin’ emotionally engaging, while the Yuen Kwai-orchestrated action is a delightful throwback to the Golden Age.

  • Speed Angels

    Jun 1, 2015

    Much of the problem with ‘Speed Angels’ is its apparent contentment with clichés and a dogged determination to be utterly mundane.

  • SPL 2: A Time For Consequences

    Jan 12, 2017

    Sticking with ‘SPL 2’ makes for an overall rewarding experience as director Soi Cheang takes the viewer on a wild, thrilling and at times incredibly dark ride.
