  • All The Wrong Spies

    Feb 16, 2015

    Despite the weakness of its central performance, ‘All The Wrong Spies’ does incorporate the zest of the Cinema City films that dominated the early 80s.

  • Banana Cop

    Not that ‘Heart Against Hearts’ doesn’t have its moments, but it certainly never develops the story beyond typical moments of Hong Kong farce.

  • Heart Into Hearts
