• 100 Ways To Murder Your Wife

    Jul 2, 2015

    What may sound like an unpleasant crime thriller because of the concept and title is actually another of the comedy films that Chow Yun-Fat made earlier in his career.

  • Big Brother

    Apr 12, 2019

    ‘Big Brother’ is a wasted opportunity. It is enjoyable enough for its duration, but every scene seems like it’s been pinched from the genre book written with Dead Poets’ Society strokes.

  • Body Weapon

    Feb 25, 2015

    Dark cinematography, powerful scenes, politically incorrect humour and good fight choreography combine to make this an entertaining film, but one you are only likely to watch once.

  • Conman In Tokyo

    Mar 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.

  • Deadly Dream Woman

    Mar 5, 2015

    A deeply unfunny comedy from director Taylor Wong who allows all pace and narrative flair to disappear out of the window after the first ten minutes.

  • Fight Back To School

    Mar 12, 2015

    ‘Fight Back To School’ is one of the finest films in the Stephen Chow back catalogue, and one of my favourite Hong Kong comedies of all time.

  • Fist Power

    Mar 13, 2015

    ‘Fist Power’ is a very thin framework onto which a few interesting action scenes are hung and should not be treated as a classic of the genre.

  • Forbidden City Cop

    Mar 14, 2015

    Avid fans of Chow Sing-Chi’s humour can also rest assured as this is one of his sharpest films.

  • From Vegas To Macau III

    Oct 5, 2016

    Packed with the deluge of banality and popular references that will doubtlessly age the film well before it’s time, this third part is every bit as frustrating and lazy as the one that came before it.

  • God Of Gamblers 3 – The Early Stage

    Mar 19, 2015

    The film has neither the charm or magic of the original ‘God Of Gamblers’ and fails to competently put together a back story that is worthy of its hero.

  • Haunted Mansion

    May 14, 2018

    Whilst not without some near-peripheral flourishes of merit, To’s film is perhaps no more (or less) notable than many other similar productions of the era.

  • High Risk

    Mar 25, 2015

    This action comedy is undoubtedly at its best when Jet Li is given centre stage and allowed to show off his smooth physical moves.
