• Ip Man And Four Kings

    Feb 7, 2020

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

  • Ip Man: Kung Fu Master

    Jul 27, 2021

    At a swift 80 minutes ‘Ip Man: Kung Fu Master’ fairly throttles along trying to cover as much early Ip Man history as possible as well as cramming in as many fight scenes as it can.

  • Maria

    Jun 5, 2019

    A B-movie with some bite, ‘Maria’ stumbles with its by-the-numbers story and unnecessary scenes of torture but is saved by some cool fight scenes and a fierce lead performance from Cristine Reyes.

  • My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising

    Aug 21, 2020

    ‘Heroes Rising’ is a step in the right direction but it is still some way from being the ultimate ‘My Hero Academia’ movie.

  • My Prince Edward

    Aug 14, 2020

    Tackling familiar pressures that face young couples – especially women – in modern Hong Kong, Wong favours an understated, low-fi style that suits the material very well.

  • 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.

  • Roh

    Jul 19, 2021

    Slow burn and tense filled horror that relies more on a continuous and thick sense of dread rather than jump scares and oodles of gore, ‘Roh’ is serious horror that gets under the skin.

  • 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.

  • Silat Warriors: Deed Of Death

    Aug 27, 2021

    A mixed bag unfortunately but if you stick with it there is some incredible fight action come the second half which is a great showcase for some very gifted screen fighters.

  • 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.
