• Police Story 2013

    May 12, 2015

    There is much to appreciate here, especially a plot with enough turns and twists to keep the viewer attentive and characters who go beyond their stereotypes as the villain’s motives unfold.

  • Project S

    May 16, 2015

    Stanley Tong continues to show his skill in the action genre with more kinetic direction.

  • Shanghai Affairs

    May 22, 2015

    The action lacks any spark or excitement and the narrative fails to grab onto the viewer in the slightest.

  • 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.

  • Three Kingdoms: Resurrection Of The Dragon

    Jun 11, 2015

    ‘Three Kingdoms: Resurrection Of The Dragon’ is a mixture of well shot conflict, stirring heroism and flawed drama.
