• A Man Called Hero

    Apr 20, 2015

    Andrew Lau has a very obvious formula for making comic book adaptations and it’s one that is ultimately not very satisfying.

  • Anna In Kung Fu Land

    Feb 17, 2015

    It’s doubtful whether even non-action audiences will be fully satisfied by this entertaining, but insubstantial production

  • For Bad Boys Only

    Mar 14, 2015

    The film though has some good special effects and does retain a certain entertainment value, but it stands as a masterclass in the way a director’s lack of self-control can hinder a film’s progress.

  • Future Cops

    Mar 16, 2015

    ‘Future Cops’ is definitely worth a look for its crazy action and glittering cast, but be warned that the middle section may make you reach for the fast-forward button.

  • Help!!!

    Mar 23, 2015

    Not a Brunel intellectual challenge, this is a recommended satirical comedy, easy to enjoy and a feather in the cap of Johnnie To’s varied filmography.

  • Horseplay

    Mar 26, 2015

    This is superior entertainment of a light and fluffy nature that somehow feels more sophisticated than anything out at the moment (even though it probably isn’t).

  • Hot War

    Mar 26, 2015

    Although this didn’t set the Hong Kong box-office alight, it is still recommended viewing.

  • It Had To Be You

    Mar 30, 2015

    For those who have had their fingers burnt on numerous occasions by Hong Kong rom-coms, I offer up ‘It Had To Be You’ as a partial redemption.

  • Kamui: The Lone Ninja

    Apr 3, 2015

    Colourful, comic booked tinged ninja tale, ‘Kamui’ is a fun sword swishing time that packs in action, drama and some striking scenery.

  • Let’s Go Slam Dunk

    Apr 12, 2015

    ‘Let’s Go Slam Dunk’ cannot seem to decide whether it is aiming for heart-felt sentiment or low-brow, ‘Lucky Stars’-style comedy.

  • Mermaid Got Married

    Apr 22, 2015

    Though director Norman Law sets up a few interesting rivalries between the characters, the film tends to get too bogged down in its teen romance sub-plot.

  • My Dream Girl

    May 3, 2015

    I’ve lost 90 minutes of my life that could’ve been more productively spent on getting rid of those pesky nostril hairs. Make sure you don’t make the same mistake.
