• 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.

  • Brotherhood Of Blades

    Sep 17, 2016

    Bathed in nihilism from the opening frames to the last and creates a gradual sense of doom that would befit the most ice-cold thriller of the 40s.

  • Bulletproof Monk

    Feb 27, 2015

    Probably best described as a cliché-ridden mess that is condemned by a combination of a poor script, bad casting and laughable action.

  • Hard Boiled

    Mar 22, 2015

    John Woo allowed his imagination and cinematic showmanship full flight in ‘Hard Boiled’, strapping his trademark visuals and themes to an RPG and launching them into orbit.

  • Now You See Love… Now You Don’t

    May 4, 2015

    ‘Now You See Love… Now You Don’t’ is engrossing and eventually quite touching.

  • Once A Thief

    May 6, 2015

    John Woo really surprised the audiences with this mixture of acrobatic gunplay action and comedy.

  • Red Cliff

    May 16, 2015

    Despite having no conclusion of its own, all of the groundwork of the characterisation and story make the next chapter an exciting prospect.

  • Red Cliff: Part II

    May 16, 2015

    Part 2 is certainly the superior one, but both deserve individual credit for reviving the dying embers of John Woo’s career.

  • Reign Of Assassins

    May 17, 2015

    Fast, fresh, funny and full of character and tension, this is wuxia done well and should be seen by fans of the genre at their earliest convenience.
