• Big Bullet

    Feb 23, 2015

    Although the state of Hong Kong cinema is much approved now, it’s hard to forget the wretched state just a few years ago. ‘Big Bullet’ really stood out when it was released and remains a class act.

  • Comeuppance

    Mar 1, 2015

    The style and substance of ‘Comeuppance’ are in well-balanced equilibrium as neither overtakes the other, but there is still something indefinable that proves to be obvious by the time the credits roll.

  • Dial D For Demons

    Apr 26, 2018

    ‘Dial D for Demons’ is a modest but effective Hong Kong ghost story and generates just enough suspense to keep one on edge until the finale.

  • Downtown Torpedoes

    Mar 8, 2015

    While not proving to be a significant mark in the pages of Hong Kong film history, ‘Downtown Torpedoes’ is still a pleasant diversion that achieves most of its goals.

  • Enter The Eagles

    Mar 10, 2015

    This is an excellent action flick in the vein of Yuen Kwai’s 80’s actioners such as ‘Yes, Madam’ and ‘Righting Wrongs’ and is certainly a class above more recent efforts from the HK action circuit.

  • Fantasia

    Mar 10, 2015

    This, as you can tell from my gushing praise, is a film that has an obvious admiration and affection for the films that inspired it.

  • God Of Gamblers 3 – The Early Stage

    Mar 19, 2015

    The film has neither the charm or magic of the original ‘God Of Gamblers’ and fails to competently put together a back story that is worthy of its hero.

  • Golden Job

    Jun 12, 2019

    Working with what is probably a minimal budget by Hollywood standards, Chin Ka-Lok fashions quite an impressive action film, complete with international locations and slick looking set-pieces.

  • 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.

  • Herbal Tea

    Mar 24, 2015

    It may be relatively incident free and not as prestigious as many of its contemporaries, yet this is still a film that earns mild commendation.

  • Hot War

    Mar 26, 2015

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

  • Initial D

    Mar 29, 2015

    The linear narrative and lack of real danger in the story may limit what would otherwise be a sure-fire hit.
