• A Chinese Ghost Story

    Feb 28, 2015

    Any fan of wuxia films MUST see ‘A Chinese Ghost Story’. I can not give a higher recommendation for this veritable classic.

  • Bullet In The Head

    Feb 27, 2015

    ‘Bullet in the Head’ still packs an enormous emotional punch and is very much one of the all time classics of Hong Kong cinema.

  • Kill Bill: Volume 2

    Apr 3, 2015

    On its release ‘Kill Bill: Volume 1’ was Tarantino’s weakest film. Now that honour goes to ‘Kill Bill: Volume 2’.

  • Legacy Of Rage

    Apr 6, 2015

    ‘Legacy of Rage’ may not even be in the same category as ‘A Better Tomorrow’, but it makes for relatively pleasing pop entertainment.

  • Long Arm Of The Law

    Apr 13, 2015

    ‘Long Arm of the Law’ falls short of its reputation but still remains solid and compelling.

  • Naughty Boys

    May 3, 2015

    ‘Naughty Boys’ should only be viewed for one reason – the action. All other aspects of the film fall flat on their face.

  • Shatter

    May 24, 2015

    If you like seventies cheese then you might want to pick this one up. Otherwise it’s probably best to avoid unless you happen to be a hardcore Shaw Brothers or Ti Lung fan.

  • Showdown At The Cotton Mill

    May 25, 2015

    It’s certainly worth watching once, but as the action is good but not great it is unlikely to require repeat viewings due to it’s shortcomings in other areas.

  • Sympathy For Mr. Vengeance

    Jun 7, 2015

    It doesn’t deliver as much as it promises and doesn’t quite hit the mark as a complete unit due to a less cohesive second half and not enough time spent establishing Dong-Jin’s character.

  • The Emperor And The Assassin

    Mar 10, 2015

    ‘The Emperor and the Assassin’ is a minor masterpiece and comes highly recommended, though it should be stated that this is not a film for everyone.

  • The Era Of Vampires

    Jun 20, 2015

    ‘The Era Of Vampires’ fails to capitalise on a concept that could have turned out to be a solid film given enough care. It does raise interest from time to time but is unable to sustain that interest.

  • The Medallion

    Apr 22, 2015

    The main problem with ‘The Medallion’ is it looks just like a Hollywood film with a modest budget. In fact it’s not even as good as his Hollywood films, including ‘The Tuxedo’.
