Producer: Tsui Hark
A Better TomorrowFeb 23, 2015
This is the ‘Citizen Kane’ of HK heroic bloodshed films and it never ages, even after repeat viewings.
A Better Tomorrow IIFeb 23, 2015
What this film lacks in plot, it sure as hell makes up for in action and the finale of ‘A Better Tomorrow II’ is a brutal display of guns, grenades and swordplay.
A Better Tomorrow IIIFeb 23, 2015
As a standalone film ‘A Better Tomorrow 3’ is a fairly watchable effort thanks to an intriguing premise, but as a prequel to ‘A Better Tomorrow’ it just doesn’t quite cut it.
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.
All About WomenFeb 16, 2015
‘All About Women’ is hard work, something I never thought I’d be writing about a Tsui Hark film.
Black MaskFeb 23, 2015
The action is still impressive, and deserves 4 stars, but the direction, annoying camera work and lack of real plot drag it down into the 3 star category.
Black Mask 2: City Of MasksFeb 23, 2015
‘Black Mask 2’ could be seen as Hark’s interpretation of what appeals to a global audience or maybe he just watched one too many episodes of ‘Power Rangers’ before production began.
Burning ParadiseFeb 27, 2015
‘Burning Paradise’ is definitely a worthy addition to the classic kung fu genre as well as the many legends of Fong Sai Yuk.
Detective Dee And The Mystery Of The Phantom FlameMar 7, 2015
Impressive production values, an excellent cast and a few moments of genuine inspiration (courtesy of Sammo Hung’s action choreography) make the minutes fly be.
Detective Dee: The Four Heavenly KingsJul 30, 2018
Much like the first two Dee flicks, ‘The Four Heavenly Kings’ is an often breathless fantasy blockbuster that doesn’t skimp on the wuxia action, CGI wonderment and imaginative scenarios.
Flying Swords Of Dragon GateMar 14, 2015
Those less critical may get more out of ‘Flying Swords’ as there is still a lot of high flying action on offer, despite it being stuffed with CGI, and the film certainly has a rich visual style.
