• Clan Of Amazons

    Mar 1, 2015

    ‘Clan Of Amazons’ is an elegant swordplay film that shows how entertaining the genre can be when the various components are properly blended.

  • Shaolin Temple

    May 23, 2015

    ‘Shaolin Temple’ is still a major achievement by a film-maker who was one of the true creators of the genre. There is, therefore, plenty to put this near the top of your viewing list.

    ‘The Lady Hermit’ still manages to stand up well decades on as an extremely entertaining, if not extremely gory, example of the Shaw Brothers armed combat films in their prime.

  • The Shadow Boxer

    May 22, 2015

    ‘The Shadow Boxer’ is a fairly standard affair as offered by the Shaw Brother’s studio and is unable to elevate itself to compete with the likes of the classic ‘Boxer from Shantung’ and the exceptional ‘The Water Margin’.

  • Trilogy Of Swordsmanship

    Jun 16, 2015

    Though there is talent behind the lens and in front of it, this is a run-of-the-mill swordplay film with a wasted gimmick.
