• How To Choose A Royal Bride

    Mar 26, 2015

    Some may not like ‘How To Choose A Royal Bride’ because of the episodic nature of the story but this is some fun if rather slight entertainment.

  • Killer Constable

    Apr 12, 2015

    ‘Killer Constable’ could have been a genre film with a heart as well as a brain; as it is, this is a good, but not great kung fu film in both action and content.

  • Killers Five

    Apr 3, 2015

    I really can’t find much to criticise in this movie. It’s a short, tight story that is well told, well acted, exciting and at times surprising. Good times.

  • Legacy Of Rage

    Apr 6, 2015

    ‘Legacy of Rage’ may not even be in the same category as ‘A Better Tomorrow’, but it makes for relatively pleasing pop entertainment.

  • Magnificent Warriors

    Apr 19, 2015

    Whether she’s using a bull-whip, fighting Hwang Jang Lee or enjoying a momentary pause, Yeoh controls this film with pure class.

  • Martial Club

    Apr 21, 2015

    This fine period film flawlessly combines the dazzling choreography that one expects from Liu Chia-Liang and the moral edge that often underlines his work.

  • My Rebellious Son

    May 3, 2015

    With a studio-bound feel that ages it beyond its years and an ambling storyline that sees the useful sub-plots cast aside, ‘My Rebellious Son’ rarely shines.

  • One-Armed Swordsman

    May 7, 2015

    Without any argument, ‘One-Armed Swordsman’ is therefore a quality swordplay film that has much to offer to viewers today.

  • Peking Opera Blues

    May 11, 2015

    The three female stars are simply flawless with each offering a different aspect to the film’s overall feel.

  • Perils Of The Sentimental Swordsman

    May 11, 2015

    The real draw, and the skill of Chor Yuen, is to make an ensemble of eccentrics, oddball antagonists and superheroes appealing and a means of covering up the unapologetic holes in the narrative.

  • Return Engagement

    Sep 26, 2018

    ‘Return Engagement’ is cut from much the same cloth as many gangster films of the era but differentiates itself with a stronger core storyline.

  • Return Of The Dead

    Jan 6, 2018

    Li’s ghostly anthology achieves its ends as a series of cautionary tales of the ills that might befall those who succumb to their own greed and desires.
