• 72 Tenants Of Prosperity

    Jul 19, 2015

    With a welcome big screen appearance by Anita Yuen and an all-star rendition of Sam Hui’s beloved ’Private Eyes’ theme, this celebration of Hong Kong is an unpretentious distraction.

  • Clean My Name, Mr. Coroner!

    Mar 1, 2015

    There is no doubt that this quirky and engrossing production has its faults; not all of the loose ends are successfully tied up and those that are seem to work out a little too neatly.

  • Frugal Game

    Mar 15, 2015

    ‘Frugal Game’ is a pleasant comedy that stands out of the rest of the market because of its odd glimpse of invention.

  • Kung Fu Master Is My Grandma!

    Apr 4, 2015

    In its own way it is quite a diverting drama that has its moments of chemistry between the two leads. It’s just unfortunate that the b-movie direction undermines the hard work of the cast.

  • Queen Of Kowloon

    May 16, 2015

  • Satan Returns

    Sep 17, 2016

    ‘Satan Returns’ can’t decide if it’s a serious dark thriller or a goofy over-the-top action horror combo.

  • Sky On Fire

    Aug 25, 2017

    Ringo Lam in the director’s chair should ensure a film that is at least cohesive. ‘Sky On Fire’ shows that this faith in the film-maker may be currently under review as this incredulous action thriller is a messy, wildly inconsistent affair.

  • The Log

    Apr 13, 2015

    There’s no doubt then that ‘The Log’ has qualities that recommend it, though it never reaches the heights that Chiu’s admirers would demand.
