• A-1

    Feb 15, 2004

    There are moments of entertainment here, but the flat denouement sums up the lack of real polish that the preceding 100 minutes had provided.

  • Accident

    Feb 16, 2015

    Weaving a tangled web, ‘Accident’ is actually elegant in its simplicity but by the film’s conclusion, whatever your thoughts are on the movie itself you are likely to be more cautious of crossing the road or getting out of a car.

  • Aces Go Places

    Feb 16, 2015

    Unlike much of today’s canto-comedy, the humour in ‘Aces.’ translates very well and certainly doesn’t seem to have dated after nearly twenty-years.

  • Aces Go Places II

    Feb 16, 2015

    The formula that made the original so successful has naturally remained untampered, but the scope of effects and stunts clearly expanded.

  • Aces Go Places III: Our Man In Bond Street

    Feb 16, 2015

    Alongside this familiar narrative is the constantly disarming duo of Samuel Hui and Karl Maka and they of course continue to show great comic timing and interplay in the familiar roles of Sam and Kodijack.

  • Aces Go Places IV: You Never Die Twice

    Feb 16, 2015

    Unlike ‘Aces. III’ which failed to integrate the eastern and the western elements of the film, ‘Aces. IV’ succeeds in creating a globe-hopping adventure without losing its main Asian audience.

  • Aces Go Places V: The Terracotta Hit

    Feb 16, 2015

    The film boasts a truly stellar cast and good production values, but sadly the saga had run out of steam.

  • Agent Mr. Chan

    Feb 6, 2019

    It’s all very pleasant as a celeb-spotting exercise though it does remind you of the much better films these stars have already been in, productions you should be watching instead.

  • All About Ah Long

    Feb 16, 2015

    For those willing to explore other genres of Hong Kong films though, ‘All About Ah Long’ is a quality film that continues to have a resonance after it has ended.

  • All About Love

    Feb 16, 2015

    When the main story takes centre stage, the viewer’s interest is likely to be lost and the plot-holes difficult to reconcile.

  • All About Women

    Feb 16, 2015

    ‘All About Women’ is hard work, something I never thought I’d be writing about a Tsui Hark film.

  • All For The Winner

    Feb 17, 2015

    ‘All For The Winner’ is a fun all-round movie with a particularly pleasing performance from Stephen Chow.
