Release Year: 2002
A Perfect MatchMay 11, 2015
Despite moments that show a director trying to craft something different from a common storyline, there is no reason why this should be considered unfair; this is mostly well executed yet only mildly diverting fare.
A.f.r.i.k.aDec 5, 2018
‘A.f.r.i.k.a’ isn’t rocket science, but if you like a good laugh and are conversant in the basics of Korean pop-culture and society, it should prove an enjoyable treat, nonetheless.
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.
Blade IIFeb 24, 2015
Part 2 showed some nicer choreography but was hindered by the MTV-style camera work, which has seemingly infected all action films of the past few years.
ChampionFeb 28, 2015
An entertaining if hardly revolutionary piece of sports bio, ‘Champion’ benefits from some fine photography, a commitment to do the subject proud and some excellent performances from the cast.
Dark WaterMar 5, 2015
Like the majority of Hideo Nakata’s work, ‘Dark Water’ proves to be more of a psychological entry into the genre rather than an all out gore-fest.
Dry Wood, Fierce FireMar 9, 2015
Taking a well-trod tale of unrequited love and combining efforts with current hot property Miriam Yeung, Yip imbues proceedings with an infectious air.
Flying Dragon, Leaping TigerMar 14, 2015
What Lan has given audiences is a hark back to the new-wave boom of the early-90s that, while never setting the screen alight, is mostly entertaining.
Frugal GameMar 15, 2015
‘Frugal Game’ is a pleasant comedy that stands out of the rest of the market because of its odd glimpse of invention.
Half Past DeadMar 22, 2015
‘Half Past Dead’ is another poor addition to the rap fu genre and is less entertaining than both ‘Exit Wounds’ and ‘Romeo Must Die’, whose audience this clearly aims itself at.
HeroMar 24, 2015
‘Hero’ has shown that an exquisitely photographed film does not always have to be a case of style over substance.
Infernal AffairsMar 31, 2015
The film has one of the best stories I’ve seen in quite a while and the cast and crew all produce some of their finest work to date.
