• A-1

    Feb 15, 2004

    There are moments of entertainment here, but the flat denouement sums up the lack of real polish that the preceding 100 minutes had provided.

  • City Hunter

    Mar 1, 2015

    The combination of wacky humour and Chan’s superior comedic timing make ‘City Hunter’ a lot of fun to watch.

  • Elixir Of Love

    Mar 10, 2015

    ‘Elixir Of Love’ passes the time adequately, but there’s little doubt that it fails to stretch Riley Yip’s creative excellence and doesn’t even rank as one of Miriam Yeung’s best.

  • Fly Me To Polaris

    Mar 14, 2015

    ‘Fly Me To Polaris’ makes no excuses for its obvious emotional machinations and a storyline clearly designed to tug at the heart-strings.

  • Gen-Y Cops

    Mar 16, 2015

    For all the plot holes and script deficiencies, this is an excellent slice of Hong Kong entertainment with a return to the edict of fun film-making that made the 80’s stand out.

  • Juliet In Love

    Apr 2, 2015

    ‘Juliet In Love’ could be well-described as a economic and perhaps minimal love story; there are no grand gestures or over-the-top histrionics.

  • Just One Look

    Apr 2, 2015

    Amusing (though never crude) and nostalgic (though never overly sentimental), Riley Yip’s gentle ‘coming-of-age’ comedy/drama earns a major recommendation.

  • Love In The Time Of Twilight

    Apr 15, 2015

    ‘Love In The Time Of Twilight’ is the kind of film that starts awkwardly but increases in stature as the story continues.

  • Sound Of Colors

    Jun 1, 2015

    The production cannot sustain its appeal nor can it do justice to the grand themes of loneliness/love that it attempts to tackle.

  • Temporary Family

    Jun 9, 2015

    As pleasing as ‘Temporary Family’ proves to be – and it balances comedy, drama and a scintilla of satire – it could have been even better with a few tweaks here and there.

  • 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 World Of Treasure

    Jun 28, 2015

    ‘The World Of Treasure’ notches up the odd moment of entertainment during its course and arouses sporadic interest. However, as a Michael Hui film, or even a general Hong Kong comedy it is found wanting.
