• One Arm Hero

    May 7, 2015

    ‘One Arm Hero’ has its moments, though they don’t help the finished production achieve anything more than the entertaining.

  • Riki-Oh: The Story Of Ricky

    Jun 2, 2015

    Loaded with larger-than-life characters and absolutely overflowing with gore, ‘Riki-Oh: The Story Of Ricky’ is an insane outing that hops from one bizarre confrontation to another.

  • Ten Tigers Of Kwantung

    Jun 10, 2015

    The final word is that this is highly recommended for the teaming of fifteen or so of the top stars of the Shaw Brothers era. As a stand-alone production though, ‘Ten Tigers Of Kwantung’ is not Chang Cheh’s best.

  • The Blue Jean Monster

    Feb 25, 2015

    ‘The Blue Jean Monster’ has a little soul and pathos lurking at the heart of its rampant Hong Kong chaos.

  • The Brave Archer 3

    Feb 26, 2015

    The three films are of course better if viewed as one long film, but that is partially the undoing of this third instalment due to it’s comparatively slow pacing following the hectic earlier instalments.

  • The Bride With White Hair

    Feb 26, 2015

    Yu’s extravagant use of colour and innovative camera techniques are extremely pleasing, but in no way make up for the lack of depth missing from the rest of the film.

  • The Daredevils

    Mar 5, 2015

    ‘The Daredevils’ is a fine opportunity to savour a great team of performers who always appear to be so comfortable together.

  • The Rebel Intruders

    Apr 3, 2015

    Alongside ‘Invincible Shaolin’, ‘The Rebel Intruders’ ranks as one of the best of the Venoms’ films and one of their most realised.

  • The Touch

    Jun 15, 2015

    A big-budget mess that occasionally makes good use of its actors, this is a movie that has few strengths to rely on.

  • Tiger Cage 2

    Jun 14, 2015

    This really isn’t a truly great cinematic ‘film’, but one which moves at a frenetic, action-packed pace while fittingly bringing an end to the fabulous 80’s style action.

  • Treasure Hunt

    Jun 16, 2015

    This fun, frothy and occasionally full on violent concoction mashes so many genres together its surprising ‘Treasure Hunt’ turned out this well made, coherent and well, entertaining.

  • Two Champions Of Shaolin

    Jun 19, 2015

    What starts off in a very prosaic and none too exciting manner quickly develops into another winning entry in the Venoms’ pantheon.
