• 92 Legendary La Rose Noire

    If any viewer has been brought up on the Hong Kong musicals that Jeff Lau’s work alludes to, this will be highly recommended.

  • All’s Well, Ends Well

    Feb 17, 2015

    There’s still enjoyment to be had in this Hong Kong comedy though as long as the potential viewer is willing to forgive its various shortcomings.

  • And I Hate You So

    Feb 17, 2015

    ‘And I Hate You So’ could and should have been much better; instead the viewer is left with a good film that simply didn’t realise its full potential.

  • Daddy, Father And Papa

    Mar 4, 2015

    Clifton Ko prefers to fill the film with dubious comedy and ‘Home Alone’-style action – certainly no compensation for even a few seconds of Sammo’s genius.

  • Front Page

    Mar 15, 2015

    Michael Hui uses moments of slapstick, social conscience and satire in conjunction with his flawless timing.

  • Hard Boiled

    Mar 22, 2015

    John Woo allowed his imagination and cinematic showmanship full flight in ‘Hard Boiled’, strapping his trademark visuals and themes to an RPG and launching them into orbit.

  • Legend Of The Dragon

    Apr 6, 2015

    ‘Legend Of The Dragon’ is a very entertaining parody of Bruce Lee movies that is packed full of Stephen Chow comedy gold.

  • 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.

  • Now You See Love… Now You Don’t

    May 4, 2015

    ‘Now You See Love… Now You Don’t’ is engrossing and eventually quite touching.

  • Protégé De La Rose Noire

    May 16, 2015

    ‘Protégé De La Rose Noire’ is an extremely exaggerated and silly comedy that really failed to tickle any part of my funny bone.

  • The Magnificent Scoundrels

    Apr 19, 2015

    There’s little room for Chow’s trademark “fast speak” here, and it’s definitely more ‘Three Stooges’ than ‘Monty Python’.

  • The Spy Dad

    Jun 1, 2015

    I did notice my skin peeling off as the film neared its conclusion, though on closer inspection this seems to have been what doctors call ‘The Chapman To effect’.
