• Games Gamblers Play

    Mar 16, 2015

    As an introduction to the Hui brothers or Hong Kong comedy in general, this is a fine starting point.

  • Hand Of Death

    Mar 22, 2015

    Although not a masterpiece, ‘Hand Of Death’ is a good example of how quality quickly shines through and stands out in a crowded genre.

  • Hapkido

    Mar 22, 2015

    A simple storyline that is backed up by an ample supply of martial arts sequences; this is a film that makes no bones about being a showcase for the impressive fighting skills of its lead actors.

  • Happy Ding Dong

    Mar 22, 2015

    It’s somewhat disappointing to see a comedian of Michael Hui’s pedigree reverting to, what is essentially, a reworking of the classic Jack Lemmon/Tony Curtis/Marilyn Monroe comedy ‘Some Like It Hot’.

  • Iron Fisted Monk

    Mar 30, 2015

    Any Sammo Hung fan would love this film, as would anyone who enjoys old-school martial arts flicks.

  • Knockabout

    Apr 4, 2015

    The action is simply electric, most notably the two-against-one finale that pits Sammo and Yuen against Liu Chia Yung.

  • Magnificent Butcher

    Apr 19, 2015

    This film could be recommended alone for it’s exceptional fight action, but as you’d expect from this cast there’s much more on offer.

  • Money Crazy

    Apr 25, 2015

    Though it’s not in the same league as the Michael Hui hits it tries to emulate, ‘Money Crazy’ is still reasonably entertaining and certainly better than Woo’s other ventures into the genre.

  • One-Armed Boxer

    May 29, 2021

    ‘One-Armed Boxer’, while a little rough around the edges, has lost none of its crazy energy and still packs an almighty bloody punch with its almost non-stop 90 minutes of martial arts fight action.

  • Plain Jane To The Rescue

    May 11, 2015

    Episodic like a Hui Brothers film but without the sharp humour, ‘Plain Jane To The Rescue’ is an enjoyable diversion though it may test the patience of some fans.

  • Project A

    May 16, 2015

    Using the conventions of the 30’s Hollywood swashbucklers mixed with his insane stunts and sublime fight action, Chan produced one of his best ever films.

  • Security Unlimited

    May 22, 2015

    Far more subtle than Chow Sing Chi, but certainly as funny, ‘Security Unlimited’ is an excellent introduction to the world of the Hui brothers.
