• Golgo 13: Assignment Kowloon

    Mar 21, 2015

    ‘Golgo 13: Assignment Kowloon’ seems to do so much right that it makes me wonder why this wasn’t the start of a series of films.

  • Kill Bill: Volume 1

    Apr 3, 2015

    ‘Kill Bill: Volume 1’ is a great tribute to Asian action cinema that mixes Tarantino’s stylised violence with some top Yuen Woo-Ping choreography.

  • Shogun’s Samurai

    May 25, 2015

    Not the best of its kind and it drags a little too much with the running time, ‘Shogun’s Samurai’ is still a decent slice of Samurai drama from a time when they used to make them big.

  • Survive Style 5+

    If you just remember to bring a sense of humour, and wonder, you’ll be rewarded with what is easily one of the best Japanese films of the year.

    Apr 3, 2015

    Whether you’re looking for a martial arts movie with a bit more depth or just want some top-notch action, this really does deliver on all levels and I heartily recommend it.

  • The Storm Riders

    Jun 1, 2015

    ‘The Storm Riders’ is a film that all Hong Kong film fans will want to watch for its reputation. Whether or not it’ll stay in the viewer’s mind much longer after the final credits role is a different matter.

  • Yakuza Deka

    Jun 29, 2015

    Despite some excellent action with Chiba on top form, it’s the unintentionally comical moments and camp overall feeling that win out.

  • Yakuza Deka: The Assassin

    Jun 29, 2015

    While it may still be an adequate time filler, ‘Yakuza Deka: The Assassin’ is really nothing more than a carbon copy of the first film.
