• Blood Brothers

    Feb 24, 2015

    Not a complete waste of time as it does provide some basic gangster movie stylings but ‘Blood Brothers’ is just that: an exercise in style and a style that has been done much better by other films.

  • Boiling Point

    Feb 25, 2015

    For newcomers it may prove a little difficult to get into and occasionally confusing but those already enjoying Kitano’s films will easily find several merits here that are synonymous with his best work.

  • Born To Fight

    Feb 25, 2015

    It’s basically just ninety minutes of acrobatic fight sequences, nail biting stuntwork and laughable plot devices, so enjoy!

  • Boyka: Undisputed

    Oct 16, 2017

    Scott Adkins returns to one of his signature roles in this fourth instalment of the ‘Undisputed’ franchise and, much like Parts 2 & 3, he and the film deliver.

  • Breaking News

    Feb 26, 2015

    ‘Breaking News’ is punctuated by tension-filled action set-pieces, but its main draw is the sharp characterisation and the insightful critique of the media that fills most of the running time.

  • Breathing

    Aug 7, 2018

    Director Fan Haolun seems to be more concerned with playing with flashbacks and flash-forwards than he is with constructing a story of any real depth.

    Feb 26, 2015

    The film carries on down a winding road of raised fists and black eyes but maintains a battered humanity as well.

  • Brother

    Feb 26, 2015

    ‘Brother’ is a very classy film with some powerful moments that are eloquently shot and acted through the eyes of Takeshi Kitano.

  • Bullet In The Head

    Feb 27, 2015

    ‘Bullet in the Head’ still packs an enormous emotional punch and is very much one of the all time classics of Hong Kong cinema.

  • BuyBust

    Jan 29, 2019

    We could be reaching fatigue with this style of relentlessly violent edged, Eastern set action flick but ‘BuyBust’s commitment to its own vibe and the impressive setting make it a worthwhile investment.

  • Children…

    Feb 28, 2015

    Lee Kyoo-Man provides us with a well shot, gently paced ‘what if?’ that might not be gripping, but is much more than just a distraction.

  • China White

    Feb 28, 2015

    ‘China White’ is not as accomplished as Yu’s later films and hasn’t dated the best either but still remains an entertaining thriller with some hard hitting action scenes.
