Country: Hong Kong
A Terracotta WarriorJun 10, 2015
Bathing various scenes with the visual potency that alludes to Tsui Hark and with a rousing soundtrack at his disposal, Ching Siu Tung unleashes a minor epic that is highly recommended.
A Wicked GhostJun 19, 2020
‘A Wicked Ghost’ is a vaguely interesting premise, let down by some rather pedestrian direction and generally wooden performances by its largely unknown cast.
A-1Feb 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.
AccidentFeb 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 PlacesFeb 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 IIFeb 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 StreetFeb 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 TwiceFeb 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 HitFeb 16, 2015
The film boasts a truly stellar cast and good production values, but sadly the saga had run out of steam.
Agent Mr. ChanFeb 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 LongFeb 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 LoveFeb 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.
