    Jacob Cheung’s celebrated drama is that magical juxtaposition of gritty social commentary and absorbing character study that many lesser directors aspire to replicate.

  • Dragon From Russia

    Mar 8, 2015

    ‘Dragon from Russia’ is best described as a group of excellent fight sequences strung together by a rather muddled plot and some curious casting.

  • Kung Fu Vs. Acrobatic

    Apr 4, 2015

    ‘Kung Fu vs. Acrobatic’ is bizarre. Very importantly though, it is also an entertaining and pleasantly silly film.

  • License To Steal

    Apr 12, 2015

    Joyce Godenzi accepts the lead role with real grace and, like Michelle Yeoh before her, is a flawless mixture of fighting prowess and femininity.

  • 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.

  • New Dragon Gate Inn

    May 4, 2015

    May disappoint die-hard action fans, but would prove a good introduction to swordplay style films, especially for the H.K uninitiated and Hollywood lovers.

  • Once Upon A Time In China

    May 6, 2015

    Hark combines a well-paced and beautifully photographed narrative with strong characters and exciting fight action.

  • Once Upon A Time In China III

    May 7, 2015

    Tsui Hark very cleverly realised that topping the fight action in part 2 would be almost impossible, and adopted a different style accordingly.

  • Once Upon A Time In China IV

    May 7, 2015

    The action (ladder fight excepted) is equal to part 1, but not the dramatic element, and it is certainly not the equal of part 2 for fight choreography.

  • Once Upon A Time In China V

    May 7, 2015

    For those that hate the frequent use of wire-fu (like me), you better look elsewhere as action choreography for this film relies heavily upon its use.

  • Prince Of The Sun

    May 15, 2015

    If the rest of the film had been as good as the last half hour then ‘Prince of the Sun’ would be more fondly remembered.

  • Summer Snow

    Jun 4, 2015

    Its gritty, truthful tone and flawless cast manage to take a sub-genre fraught with cliché and melodrama and give it a provocative resonance that is so very precious.
