• My Father Is A Hero

    May 3, 2015

    ‘My Father Is A Hero’ provides some adrenalin pumping set-pieces, notably a classic scene where Li takes on a dozen of the villain’s lackies with a pair of tonfa.

  • Operation Scorpio

    Jul 8, 2015

    This film has been elevated to cult status in recent years and has become a huge favourite with a world-wide audience. All of this is thoroughly deserved.

  • Prince Of The Sun

    May 15, 2015

    If the rest of the film had been as good as the last half hour then ‘Prince of the Sun’ would be more fondly remembered.

  • Robotrix

    May 18, 2015

    An extremely dated Category III exploitation flick that, a few nasty bits aside, is more camp than cool.

  • Rose, Rose I Love You

    May 19, 2015

    ‘Rose, Rose I Love You’ is less of a straight lampoon of 60s Hong Kong cinema and more of a genuine attempt to harness the spiritedness of the original.

  • Saviour Of The Soul

    May 21, 2015

    With a startling visual style and innovative action aplenty, ‘Saviour Of The Soul’ ranks among the very best of the Hong Kong fantasy genre.

  • Shanghai Shanghai

    May 23, 2015

    If you’re a fan of Biao or Sammo, this will make an unremarkable, but enjoyable addition to your collection; if you’re indifferent to either, the chances are you will feel the same about this film.

    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.

  • She Shoots Straight

    May 24, 2015

    A simple and fast moving story about a tough female cops, is told with style, if not great direction, by Yuen Kwai.

  • The Bodyguard From Beijing

    Feb 25, 2015

    ‘The Bodyguard From Beijing’ had the potential to be remembered as a classic action film, but Corey Yuen has failed miserably compared to his other wonderful classics.

  • The Boxer From The Temple

    Feb 25, 2015

    Law Ma has crafted an ensemble kung-fu comedy that has a good number of intricately constructed showdowns and a few moments that manage true pathos rather than tacked on emotion.

  • The Iceman Cometh

    Mar 30, 2015

    ‘The Iceman Cometh’ remains one of Biao’s finest leading man moments. It’s packed full of great performances, enjoyable kung fu fights and a very unique story.
