    ‘Bullet in the Head’ still packs an enormous emotional punch and is very much one of the all time classics of Hong Kong cinema.

  • Fearless

    Mar 11, 2015

    This is a Jet Li film we can finally be proud of and a Ronny Yu work that will finally stand the test of time.

  • Iceman: The Time Traveller

    Feb 28, 2020

    What could have been a fun period set actioner is instead a rushed, confusing sequel which, as other reviews have pointed out, seems to have been cobbled together in a rush from unused footage from the first ‘Iceman’.

  • Lost In Time

    Apr 14, 2015

    With characterisation so strongly emphasised in the film, it’s encouraging to see that both of the pivotal figures are empathetic enough to make Derek Yee’s goal successful.

  • Mr. Cinema

    May 1, 2015

    If the more ambitious nature of the production can be ignored and the awkward jingoism put to one side, ‘Mr. Cinema’ can be enjoyed as a well-performed, sometimes captivating film.

    May 17, 2015

    Fast, fresh, funny and full of character and tension, this is wuxia done well and should be seen by fans of the genre at their earliest convenience.

  • Special ID

    Jun 1, 2015

    After a surge of period and fantasy styled films, Donnie Yen returns to modern day cop action territory in the somewhat schlocky but no less entertaining ‘Special ID’.

  • Sword Master

    Apr 20, 2017

    In a relatively short time Yee creates a fascinating martial world every bit as involving as the visions that Chor Yuen used to put together years before.

  • The Way We Are

    Jun 25, 2015
