• Kill ‘Em All

    Oct 30, 2019

    ‘Kill ’Em All’ has a gem of an idea at its core but squanders it with needless flashbacks, unnecessary characters and terrible editing.

  • Kung Fu Yoga

    Feb 20, 2017

    It gives me no pleasure to say that I would even consider, if heavily medicated, watching ‘The Spy Next Door’ again rather than this.

  • Love Education

    Apr 3, 2018

    A poignant family drama with dashes of dry humour, ‘Love Education’ is a film that director and star Sylvia Chang can be suitably proud of.

  • Manhunt

    Jul 16, 2018

    Not the return to modern action many a Woo fan may have hoped for but fun in fits and starts if you can forgive its flaws.

  • Midnight Runners

    Feb 22, 2018

    Fresh, funny, exciting and full of snappy action, ‘Midnight Runners’ is a joyous ride, rarely missing a beat from first frame until last.

  • Never Say Die

    Mar 1, 2018

    There is a solid mix of winning visual gags, one-liners and absurdism that makes ‘Never Say Die’ entertaining even for those of us who do not speak Mandarin.

  • Our Time Will Come

    Jan 19, 2018

    ‘Our Time Will Come’ is another excellent Ann Hui film, but it’s Zhou Xun’s aptitude that lingers after the running time ends.

  • Paradox

    Jan 17, 2020

    The third instalment in the ‘SPL’ franchise sees original director Wilson Yip return for another dark crime tale that doesn’t skimp on the nihilism or the hard edged fight action.

  • Savage Dog

    Nov 23, 2017

    A pulpy period actioner is a good way to describe ‘Savage Dog’ but come the second half, the film veers into full on exploitation madness as the violence is ramped up.

  • Shock Wave

    Nov 20, 2017

    ‘Shock Wave’ is an above average Andy Lau action film that shows that the star can still be called on to play the tough hero when needed.

  • Survival Family

    Jan 15, 2019

    The humour is never forced and the drama never over-cooked, meaning that as a whole, the film hits its targets with remarkable accuracy.

  • The Adventurers

    Jan 1, 2018

    ‘The Adventurers’ itself is a breezy romp with a good cast, some smart action sequences and enough momentum to make its duration enjoyable on a standard level.
