• Shaolin And Wu Tang

    May 3, 2022

    There are some plot holes that become apparent as the film continues, but good quality action and a fine cast cover a multitude of sins.

  • Shaolin Intruders

    May 23, 2015

    ‘Shaolin Intruders’ doesn’t offer any of the genre-defining moments that leap out of the true masterpieces of the genre.

  • Sixty Million Dollar Man

    May 26, 2015

    ‘Sixty Million Dollar Man’ is a lazy and disappointingly unfunny outing for all concerned.

  • The Duel

    Mar 9, 2015

    With a clearly impressive budget and a star-studded cast, it is to be expected that the film is padded out and not always as engrossing as it should have been.

  • The Hero Of Swallow

    Mar 24, 2015

    ‘The Hero Of Swallow’ retains a few likeable old-school qualities that just about save it from falling below the three star mark.

  • The Iceman Cometh

    Mar 30, 2015

    ‘The Iceman Cometh’ remains one of Biao’s finest leading man moments. It’s packed full of great performances, enjoyable kung fu fights and a very unique story.

  • The Lovers

    Apr 17, 2015

    Despite ‘The Lovers’ undoubted quality, it proves to be short of the magic that it often hints at. Parts of this film therefore prove to be greater than it as a whole.

  • The Spy Dad

    Jun 1, 2015

    I did notice my skin peeling off as the film neared its conclusion, though on closer inspection this seems to have been what doctors call ‘The Chapman To effect’.

  • The Storm Riders

    Jun 1, 2015

    ‘The Storm Riders’ is a film that all Hong Kong film fans will want to watch for its reputation. Whether or not it’ll stay in the viewer’s mind much longer after the final credits role is a different matter.

  • Till Death Do Us Laugh

    Jun 15, 2018

    ‘Till Death Do Us Laugh’ hits a nice balance of horror and comedy, with neither outweighing the other, whilst never taking itself so seriously as a collective that the audience can’t have a bit of fun with it.

  • Wonder Seven

    Aug 10, 2017

    While it’s no great shakes ‘Wonder Seven’ will provide some nostalgia tinged enjoyment for those who miss the golden days of stunt filled Hong Kong action cinema.
