• Kickboxer 5: The Redemption

    Jun 23, 2020

    ‘Kickboxer 5’ is far from perfect but it remains a solid action outing that is boosted by the inclusion of such a physically adept leading man.

  • Love In The Time Of Twilight

    Apr 15, 2015

    ‘Love In The Time Of Twilight’ is the kind of film that starts awkwardly but increases in stature as the story continues.

  • Mortal Kombat

    Apr 30, 2015

    While it is undoubtedly still flawed, ‘Mortal Kombat’ remains one of the most admirable big screen video game adaptations and a competent American Martial Arts movie.

  • My Father Is A Hero

    May 3, 2015

    ‘My Father Is A Hero’ provides some adrenalin pumping set-pieces, notably a classic scene where Li takes on a dozen of the villain’s lackies with a pair of tonfa.

  • Only Fools Fall In Love

    May 9, 2015

    The over-the-top style that is often associated with this sub-genre of comedy may not be to everyone’s taste, but it remains entertaining and raises the odd chuckle.

  • Peace Hotel

    Jan 12, 2021

    A great set up is unfortunately wasted via odd creative choices, too much focus on comedy-romance and a reliance on grating theatrics.

  • Red Wolf

    May 17, 2015

    While it remains watchable, ‘Red Wolf’ really suffers from its own inability to create anything fresh.

  • Rumble In The Bronx

    May 19, 2015

    The action is far superior to that of any American made film on ten times the budget, and shows Chan at his best shortly after the excellent ‘Drunken Master 2’.

  • Savate

    May 21, 2015

    The action is typically American. Gruner displays a repertoire of 3 different kicks at a less than blistering pace, while his opponents are even less impressive.

  • Score

    May 21, 2015

    Not that I am expecting high art from what is a low budget Japanese action film but this film really is awful.

  • Sea Root

    May 21, 2015

    Lau Ching-Wan is simply stunning in the role of Root, putting so much delicate charm and humility in his part that it’s impossible for the viewer not to empathise with him.

  • Sixty Million Dollar Man

    May 26, 2015

    ‘Sixty Million Dollar Man’ is¬†a lazy and disappointingly¬†unfunny outing for all concerned.
