• Twilight Of The Warriors: Walled In

    Jun 4, 2024

    Arriving with a heft of rightly earned hype, ‘Walled In’ is an often epic, brutal, and thoroughly entertaining throwback to 80s Hong Kong style cinema.

  • The Swordsman Of All Swordsmen

    May 22, 2024

    A somewhat straightforward, and at times melodramatic, narrative is given heft by the committed cast, stunning cinematography and set design, and fantastic swordplay action.

  • Badland Hunters

    May 6, 2024

    Slickly helmed by stunt guy and first-time director Heo Myung-Haeng, ‘Badland Hunters’ is some rollicking fun not to be taken too seriously.

  • The Boy And The Heron

    Apr 8, 2024

    Beginning somewhat sombre and low key before exploding into a cavalcade of colour and crazy (talking) creatures, ‘The Boy And The Heron’ is pure unbridled Miyazaki.

  • Bodyguard Kiba 2

    Mar 21, 2024

    Not as riotously entertaining as the first instalment, ‘Bodyguard Kiba 2’ is still a fun watch, mainly to see Chiba strutting his cool stuff and for the impressive fight scenes that open and close the film.

  • Bodyguard Kiba

    Mar 18, 2024

    Existing in its own heightened reality, ‘Bodyguard Kiba’ is all about making our hero look cool (and indestructible!) and the bad guys as nasty as possible.

  • Visitors

    Mar 12, 2024

    Owing a lot to likes of ‘Evil Dead’ (and other 80s style demon/zombie/gore films) Kenichi Ugana puts enough of his own spin and Japanese style quirk into proceedings to make it his own.

  • Fighting Spirit

    Mar 4, 2024

    ‘Fighting Spirit’ has some energy and a surfeit of almost non-stop fights but is just a little too cheap, hokey, and grimy to recommend as silly fun.

  • Slaughter In San Francisco

    Feb 21, 2024

    Helmed by the then prolific Lo Wei and giving Wong Tao an early leading role, ‘Slaughter in San Francisco’ is some often cheesy but action-packed old school martial arts action.

  • Yakuza Wolf 2

    Feb 20, 2024

    Cool, swift, and breezy, ‘Yakuza Wolf 2’ may be different in tone and style to the first film, and nowhere near as satisfying, but is still some fun gangster action with Chiba at the top of his game.

  • Yakuza Wolf

    Feb 19, 2024

    Fierce Yakuza action from the man Sonny Chiba, ‘Yakuza Wolf’ has lost none of its power as it dishes up a hard-hitting dose of violent action and in-your-face exploitation.

  • Long Arm Of The Law II

    Feb 7, 2024

    Not for the fainthearted but for fans of hard-edged cop action films from the golden era of Hong Kong, this is tough to beat.
