• Clan Of Amazons

    Mar 1, 2015

    ‘Clan Of Amazons’ is an elegant swordplay film that shows how entertaining the genre can be when the various components are properly blended.

  • Heaven Sword And Dragon Sabre

    Mar 23, 2015

    The director has taken complicated source material and distilled it into something arresting before, but here he finds too many sub-plots to balance and too many characters to accommodate.

  • Legend Of The Bat

    Apr 6, 2015

    ‘Legend Of The Bat’ suffers from the same problems as its predecessor, namely its headache-inducing twists and turns.

  • Return Of The Sentimental Swordsman

    May 17, 2015

    There’s therefore much to recommend this superior sequel, a film that takes the best elements of the original and invites viewers to contemplate a message beyond the common expectations of the genre.

  • Roving Swordsman

    May 19, 2015

    It may be a routine swordplay flick that ambles along with little revolutionary, but ‘Roving Swordsman’ is nonetheless watchable enough to warrant a purchase.

  • Swordsman And Enchantress

    Jun 6, 2015

    While I normally find myself quite happy to suspend disbelief for a Gu Long/Chor Yuen collaboration, ‘Swordsman And Enchantress’ is a real test of my patience.

  • The Anonymous Heroes

    Feb 18, 2015

    ‘The Anonymous Heroes’ is the kind of spectacular romp that has an infectious sense of enjoyment pouring off the screen.

  • The Blood Brothers

    Feb 24, 2015

    ‘The Blood Brothers’ was not a disappointment in any way and this classic Chang Cheh tale of loyalty, love and revenge is an consistently engaging martial arts drama.

  • The Brave Archer 3

    Feb 26, 2015

    The three films are of course better if viewed as one long film, but that is partially the undoing of this third instalment due to it’s comparatively slow pacing following the hectic earlier instalments.

  • The Convict Killer

    Mar 2, 2015

    ‘The Convict Killer’ is held together by the confidence of the man behind the lens and the excellent cast gathered together.

  • The Duel Of The Century

    Mar 9, 2015

    Lau Wing may not be an accomplished screen fighter, but it is his portrayal of Lu Xiaofeng that earns this a moderate rating that it otherwise would not deserve.

  • The Sentimental Swordsman

    May 22, 2015

    Chor Yuen is once again painstaking in his vision of the visual ambience of the martial world, while he also gets fine performances out of his cast.
