• All About Women

    Feb 16, 2015

    ‘All About Women’ is hard work, something I never thought I’d be writing about a Tsui Hark film.

  • Crazy N’ The City

    Mar 3, 2015

    Full of humanity and interest, it remarkably manages to takes three or four strong sub-plots and amalgamate them together without letting any of them suffer.

  • Downtown Torpedoes

    Mar 8, 2015

    While not proving to be a significant mark in the pages of Hong Kong film history, ‘Downtown Torpedoes’ is still a pleasant diversion that achieves most of its goals.

  • Drink, Drank, Drunk

    Mar 9, 2015

    Despite a few criticisms, Yee has crafted a capable film with a tender heart, something not easy to achieve in the cynical world of film-making.

  • Escape From Brothel

    Mar 10, 2015

    ‘Escape from Brothel’ may sound like it would a wild trashy romp but is in fact a grimy and often depressive trip through Hong Kong sleaze.

  • Guns Of Dragon

    Apr 27, 2015

    Certainly a product of its time and now rather dated, ‘Guns of Dragon’ is still worth a watch for those in the mood for unpretentious and gratuitous gun blazing nonsense.

  • Iron Angels

    Mar 30, 2015

    While ‘Iron Angels’ may not be the best Hong Kong action film from the city’s movie heyday, it’s certainly a benchmark in the battling babes genre.

  • Kung Fu Jungle

    Apr 4, 2015

    ‘Kung Fu Killer’, despite its B-movie title and the odd moment of cheesiness, comes very close to bringing back the elation one felt when watching golden era Hong Kong action cinema.

  • My Lucky Star

    May 3, 2015

    If only Vincent Kok had nurtured the early comedy of ‘My Lucky Star’ and allowed the two stars to develop their love, this could have been above the norm.

  • Once A Gangster

    May 6, 2015

    It’s a pleasure to see Jordan Chan given a lead role in a major production and his cowardly cook is a delightful antithesis to ‘Chicken’ from the series that made his name.

  • Overheard

    May 10, 2015

    A well-scripted, superbly executed thriller with a formidable triumvirate at the centre, this could well be one of the best genre films to have come from Asia in the past few years.

  • Overheard 3

    May 10, 2015

    Wordy, but with nothing to say, this is a verbose movie populated by monumentally dull characters and bland ‘twists’ that fail to hold the attention.
