• In The Mood For Love

    Mar 28, 2015

    A good but not great film, as visually it works beautifully, but the pacing of the direction conflicts with the pace at which the story actually develops.

  • Infernal Affairs

    Mar 31, 2015

    The film has one of the best stories I’ve seen in quite a while and the cast and crew all produce some of their finest work to date.

  • Lust, Caution

    Apr 18, 2015

    The pace, the emphasis on spy procedure rather than spy spectacle and the often graphic nature of some scenes may not be to everyone’s taste but ‘Lust, Caution’ is a challenging film made for adults.

  • My Lucky Star

    May 3, 2015

    If only Vincent Kok had nurtured the early comedy of ‘My Lucky Star’ and allowed the two stars to develop their love, this could have been above the norm.

  • People’s Hero

    May 11, 2015

    In Derek Yee though, the film has an impressive craftsmen who layers the tension until the film’s ultimately downbeat conclusion.

  • Red Cliff

    May 16, 2015

    Despite having no conclusion of its own, all of the groundwork of the characterisation and story make the next chapter an exciting prospect.

  • Red Cliff: Part II

    May 16, 2015

    Part 2 is certainly the superior one, but both deserve individual credit for reviving the dying embers of John Woo’s career.

  • Seoul Raiders

    May 22, 2015

    ‘Seoul Raiders’ is not only a disappointment in comparison to ‘Tokyo Raiders’, but also a worrying reminder of the recent lack of sparkle in Hong Kong action cinema.

  • Seven Warriors

    May 22, 2015

    ‘Seven Warriors’ does not compare to the flawless epic that inspired it, but it’s encouraging to report that this is well worth watching.

  • Sound Of Colors

    Jun 1, 2015

    The production cannot sustain its appeal nor can it do justice to the grand themes of loneliness/love that it attempts to tackle.

  • The Eagle Shooting Heroes

    Mar 9, 2015

    ‘Carry on Wuxia’ it may be, but in execution and energy ‘The Eagle Shooting Heroes’ is the most polished in-joke ever made.

  • The Grandmaster

    Mar 21, 2015

    There is no arguing that it is an entrancingly shot piece of work with some typically eye-catching Yuen Woo-Ping action choreography.
