• A Lifetime Treasure

    Jan 9, 2020

    It’s almost as if director Andrew Lam just got a few mates together for an exercise in tedium to prove how willing we are to forgive anything for a hit of nostalgia.

  • Abduction

    Jul 3, 2020

    A bit like a SyFy Channel movie mixed with an Adkins actioner, ‘Abduction’ is ninety or so minutes of sci-fi silliness coupled with action awesomeness featuring two of the best screen fighters around.

  • Avengement

    Sep 9, 2019

    Adkins and Johnson go full force here and while it may not be to everyone’s taste, ‘Avengement’ is another hit for the duo and showcase for the unprecedented talents of Scott Adkins.

  • Blood Hunters: Rise Of The Hybrids

    Mar 12, 2020

    This short, sharp and mostly sweet martial arts vampire actioner may lack budget and a dense narrative but what it does have is oodles and oodles of awesome fight action.

  • Double World

    Jul 31, 2020

    Big of budget and large in scope, ‘Double World’ starts out promising and begins to build to something rather exciting before petering off in the final third when it can’t quite keep up its momentum.

  • Ip Man And Four Kings

    ‘Ip Man And Four Kings’ leaves gaping holes in an already threadbare plot while taking even the simplest of character development as an ordeal.

  • Maria

    Jun 5, 2019

  • Parasite

    Jul 12, 2019

    It’s easy to see why ‘Parasite’ won the Palm d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival. Bong Joon-ho’s latest is no mere pretender to greatness; it’s the genuine article.

  • Send Me To The Clouds

    Jan 24, 2020

    The two most striking things about ‘Send Me To The Clouds’ are the photography and the performance of actress Yao Chen.

  • Skyfire

    Jul 10, 2020

    ‘Skyfire’ is a suitably big and brash disaster epic that mimics the bombastic Hollywood productions that reached their apex in the 1970s.

  • The Captain

    Apr 7, 2020

    Had ‘The Captain’ focused on the drama on the plane and not felt the need to flick back-and-forth to dull secondary characters, it might have brought the true story to the screen with aplomb.

  • The Iron Mask

    May 19, 2020

    Chan fans may be disappointed he’s not the main focus but he does feature in an inventive scrap with Schwarzenegger and overall there is some cool action on offer.
