• Born Invincible

    Feb 25, 2015

    ‘Born Invincible’ contains what many consider to be Carter Wong’s strongest performance; playing the crazed Chi Kung master, Wong enjoys every minute of his scenery chewing role.

  • Kung Fu Of Eight Drunkards

    Apr 4, 2015

    ‘Kung Fu of Eight Drunkards’ is interchangeable with most of the other independent productions of the time, the same strengths and weaknesses again apparent.

  • Kung Pow: Enter The Fist

    Apr 4, 2015

    If you get a giggle out of fart jokes and squeaky voices then it may well be the movie for you, but I imagine most will be better suited looking elsewhere.

  • Master Of The Flying Guillotine

    Apr 21, 2015

    It’s hard not to be drawn into director Wang Yu’s eccentric world with its almost Python-esque techniques and fights.

  • My Life’s On The Line

    May 3, 2015

    For everyone looking for a fight-filled evening’s entertainment, ‘My Life’s On The Line’ will satisfy even the most jaded viewer.

  • One Armed Swordsman Against Nine Killers

    May 9, 2015

    A few moments of Wang Yu madness creep into the film to enliven things, but this is mostly a hard slog to get through.

  • The 7 Grandmasters

    May 22, 2015

    It’s a pity that ‘The Seven Grandmasters’ is nearly a classic, but not quite. The reason it falls short and the reason why many of Kuo’s features stumble in the same way is the ending.

  • The Buddha Assassinator

    Feb 27, 2015

    ‘The Buddha Assassinator’ offers little new in terms of storyline or narrative twists. What it does offer though is some top-quality action from a very able set of actors and another classic stand-off between hero and villain.

  • The Cavalier

    May 28, 2015

    ‘The Cavalier’ is a below par effort from Joseph Kuo, a director who should know better.

  • The Idiot Swordsman

    Mar 28, 2015

    ‘The Idiot Swordsman’ is a disappointing use of cast and concept, choosing to tread very tired ground rather than explore the full potential of the story.

  • The World Of Drunken Master

    Jun 28, 2015

    Joseph Kuo can be credited with providing the genre with much to savour, but ‘World Of Drunken Master’ is a very routine kung fu comedy.
