• Big Brother

    Apr 12, 2019

    ‘Big Brother’ is a wasted opportunity. It is enjoyable enough for its duration, but every scene seems like it’s been pinched from the genre book written with Dead Poets’ Society strokes.

  • Heroes Two

    Mar 24, 2015

    ‘Heroes Two’ is not one of the definitive collaborations between Chang Cheh and Fu Sheng, but it offers quality in most departments.

    Apr 22, 2015

    Chang Cheh delivers a multi-layered kung-fu drama that is ripe with excellent characterisation and well-choreographed action.

  • Shaolin Temple

    May 23, 2015

    ‘Shaolin Temple’ is still a major achievement by a film-maker who was one of the true creators of the genre. There is, therefore, plenty to put this near the top of your viewing list.

    When the story steps up a gear and begins to blend in various antagonists, ‘The Gold Hunters’ becomes a joy to behold.

  • The Young Master

    Jun 30, 2015

    Possibly not as well structured or action packed as ‘Drunken Master’, but still an impressive note in both Biao’s and Jackie’s filmography making it an essential purchase for fans of old school kung fu.

  • Trilogy Of Swordsmanship

    Jun 16, 2015

    Though there is talent behind the lens and in front of it, this is a run-of-the-mill swordplay film with a wasted gimmick.
