• Mad World

    May 25, 2018

    It tackles a complex subject with real skill and, while not pretending to be the definitive film on the matter – as if any one film could claim to be – it is a work of rare brilliance.

  • Master Of The Drunken Fist: Beggar So

    Feb 14, 2017

    A ho-hum attempt at old school martial arts that succumbs to plodding pacing and dull storytelling.

  • Master Of The Shadowless Kick: Wong Kei-Ying

    Feb 16, 2017

    A few fight scenes pull one back from catatonia, but mostly this is a failure without the luxury of budget constraints to blame its incompetence on.

  • Mission Milano

    May 18, 2018

    ‘Mission Milano’ is exactly what you would expect from Jing; a paper thin plot, overdone action sequences and low-brow humour.

  • My Best Friend’s Wedding

    Mar 15, 2017

    This may not be revolutionary film-making, but ‘My Best Friend’s Wedding’ is ninety minutes of entertainment that will keep a smile on your face.

  • Operation Chromite

    May 31, 2017

    ‘Operation Chromite’ isn’t much different from any other recent big budget Korean war epic but on its own well produced terms and commitment to delivering spectacle, certainly entertains.

  • Operation Mekong

    Jul 1, 2017

    Lam has made better films but, along with Benny Chan, he is at the forefront of Hong Kong action in terms of delivering large scale spectacle.

  • Railroad Tigers

    Jan 6, 2017

    An often spectacular and thoroughly enjoyable action comedy with a range of characters that the audience really begins to care about.

  • Re:Born

    Mar 6, 2018

    It may be a little too simplistic in its narrative for some and others may find the one-man-army slant pushed to its limits but ‘Re:Born’ is a triumph for all involved.

  • Shin Godzilla

    Jul 9, 2017

    Not sure what it wants to be, the latest Japanese production of their beloved property is not the triumphant return some had hoped.

  • Skiptrace

    Nov 12, 2016

    It’s almost as if the makers watched ‘Rush Hour’, ‘Shanghai Noon’ and even ‘Around The World In Eighty Days’ and thought how utilitarian it might be just to throw various elements from these into one puzzling lump.

  • Sky On Fire

    Aug 25, 2017

    Ringo Lam in the director’s chair should ensure a film that is at least cohesive. ‘Sky On Fire’ shows that this faith in the film-maker may be currently under review as this incredulous action thriller is a messy, wildly inconsistent affair.
