97 Aces Go PlacesJul 19, 2015
Even though I was eager to like the film and the trailer helped make this seem a possibility, this is a major disappointment – even for the most forgiving fans of the Samuel Hui/Karl Maka classic.
Heart Of DragonMar 23, 2015
If you prefer to see Jackie in films like ‘Shanghai Noon’ and ‘Rush Hour’ then this may not be for you, but if you want to see an alternative to his stereotyped bumbling hero then it will certainly deliver.
Kidnap In RomeApr 3, 2015
‘Kidnap In Rome’ is far too preoccupied with the activities of the bumbling Italian trio who ‘aid’ Bruce Leung.
Kung Fu JungleApr 4, 2015
‘Kung Fu Killer’, despite its B-movie title and the odd moment of cheesiness, comes very close to bringing back the elation one felt when watching golden era Hong Kong action cinema.
Legacy Of RageApr 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.
Millionaires’ ExpressApr 23, 2015
Newcomers will enjoy the fight action, the slightly more experienced will also appreciate the comedy and the veteran viewer will be entertained by the great cast.
Osaka Wrestling RestaurantMay 10, 2015
For anyone who wants something a bit different from Hong Kong’s blockbusters, this may be a worthwhile purchase. Be warned, though, that ‘Osaka Wrestling Restaurant’ is not going to be to everyone’s taste.
Pedicab DriverMay 11, 2015
The final reel is raw power and energy as Sammo takes on a small army of goons before meeting his match in Billy Chow.
Shanghai ShanghaiMay 23, 2015
If you’re a fan of Biao or Sammo, this will make an unremarkable, but enjoyable addition to your collection; if you’re indifferent to either, the chances are you will feel the same about this film.
The Blonde FuryFeb 24, 2015
If, like me, you loved the 80’s action style of people like Yuen Kwai then this is a good purchase, as the fights stand up to repeat viewings even if the rest does not.
The Buddha AssassinatorFeb 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 Gambling GhostMar 16, 2015
What makes ‘Gambling Ghost’ an above-average feature is undoubtedly the superb performance by the film’s main star.
