    May 7, 2015

    ‘Once Upon A Time In Triad Society’ is a great little movie, purely down to Francis Ng in what must be one of his greatest roles.

  • Pom Pom Strikes Back

    May 13, 2015

    With this fourth part the formula remains in place and the whole production has the very comfortable feeling of familiarity to it.

  • Project A Part II

    May 16, 2015

    It was impossible to match the original classic, but Chan pulled out all of the stops to make sure he gave it his best.

  • Royal Warriors

    May 19, 2015

    Just scraping into the 4 star category, the ever-watchable Michelle Yeoh produces more classic 80’s action in a way only the battling babes can!

  • The Unmatchable Match

    Jun 19, 2015

    ‘The Unmatchable Match’ is a good example of an unremarkable synopsis getting better as the film takes hold. For a pre-comedy Chow vehicle, this is nothing for the Cantonese superstar to be ashamed of.

  • Truant Hero

    Jun 16, 2015

    There is actually some entertainment to be derived from ‘Truant Hero’ and it exists on its own strengths rather than being completely reliant on its influences.

    Jun 25, 2015

    Not quite knowing whether it is a comedy, action film or thriller, ‘What A Hero!’ manages to put in so many elements without ever succeeding in any of them.
