Director: Ching Siu-Tung
A Chinese Ghost StoryFeb 28, 2015
Any fan of wuxia films MUST see ‘A Chinese Ghost Story’. I can not give a higher recommendation for this veritable classic.
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.
An Empress And The WarriorsMar 10, 2015
‘An Empress And The Warriors’ is enticing enough to divert the attention, but without anything substantial within the duration it is quickly forgotten.
Belly Of The BeastFeb 22, 2015
A painfully generic kidnap/rescue flick with nothing in the plot or script to rise above most other straight to video fare.
Conman In TokyoMar 1, 2015
This isn’t the best ever Hong Kong movie – it isn’t even the best ever Hong Kong gambling movie – but it could have been much worse.
Dr. Wai In “The Scripture With No Words”Mar 8, 2015
The action is about only thing that makes ‘Dr. Wai’ worth watching, with Li on typically fine form for a couple of battles with some interesting opponents.
Duel To The DeathMar 9, 2015
‘Duel To The Death’ is ostentatious proof director Ching Siu Tung is not someone merely told where to put the camera.
Naked WeaponMay 3, 2015
Worth a look if you are a fan of the genre, as much of the action hints at the potential on offer when such talented choreographers are available.
SwordsmanJun 6, 2015
‘Swordsman’ is not as strong as its superior sequel and the aforementioned difficulties are all apparent, but it is still an ultimately rewarding film.
Swordsman IIJun 6, 2015
The viewer is treated to a visual feast that fully sketches out this almost mythical setting – kudos once more to director and cinematographer.
The East Is RedMar 9, 2015
‘The East Is Red’ ends the popular series with a visual bang that pummels the viewer relentlessly. Unfortunately the exercise is very much one of style over substance and the overall effect is a bewildering one.
The RaidMay 16, 2015
In what could be described as a mixture of Indiana Jones and well-known Hong Kong film traits, ‘The Raid’ is a very entertaining 100 minutes of action/comedy.
