Release Year: 1996
Balance Of PowerDec 18, 2021
‘Balance of Power’ is a fast and fun little programmer that gets by on the likability of its star and the pairing of him with the always great Mako.
Big BulletFeb 23, 2015
Although the state of Hong Kong cinema is much approved now, it’s hard to forget the wretched state just a few years ago. ‘Big Bullet’ really stood out when it was released and remains a class act.
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.
Bloodfist VIII: Hard Way OutOct 25, 2017
‘Hard Way Out’ is a sloppily cobbled together mess that is littered with awful genre cliches and a collection of very bad actors.
Bloodsport II: The Next KumiteFeb 24, 2015
‘Bloodsport II’ is an improvement over its predecessor due to the greater quantity (and quality) of the action.
Book Of SwordsFeb 25, 2015
‘Book Of Swords’ offers very little of substance and is really only suited to hardcore Mortal Kombat fanboys.
Dr. Wai In “The Scripture With No Words”Mar 8, 2015
The action is about only thing that makes ‘Dr. Wai’ worth watching, with Li on typically fine form for a couple of battles with some interesting opponents.
Dragon From ShaolinMar 8, 2015
On paper, this looked a winner: Yuen Biao in an Indiana Jones role fighting an assortment of villains in search of an ancient relic. On celluloid though, this is a grand turkey.
First OptionMar 13, 2015
‘First Option’ is definitely a high scorer on the cheese scale, but luckily it’s also loaded with some original action scenes that make it worth your while.
First StrikeMar 13, 2015
Vitally, ‘First Strike’ is still full of the energy and invention that leaves so many other action films pale in comparison.
Fists Of Legends 2: Iron BodyguardsMar 13, 2015
This is, in all honestly, a very bad film. However, if it were purely being judged on the action, then it would easily gain 3 stars.
Forbidden City CopMar 14, 2015
Avid fans of Chow’s humour can also rest assured as this is one of his sharpest films.
