• #Alive

    Oct 12, 2020

    Buoyed by two incredible performances from the young leads the film offers a fun take on two youngsters in the digital age using their grasp of tech to help them survive.

  • Anima

    Feb 26, 2021

    A visually splendid hybrid of family drama, survival story and environmental clarion call, ‘Anima’ is a haunting feature that certainly leaves an impression.

  • Crocodile Island

    Oct 12, 2020

    ‘Crocodile Island’ is deadly earnest which doesn’t quite work when characters are facing spiders the size of a shire horse.

  • Debt Collectors

    Jun 10, 2020

    This is pulp noir action done right, the banter as sharp as the flying fists and Johnson wisely builds on the first film adding depth to French and Sue as their bond deepens.

  • Deliver Us From Evil

    Apr 30, 2021

    Despite using well worn action tropes as a framework to pit two men against one another, the film spins a refreshing take on these tropes to constantly surprise the viewer and ultimately deliver an emotional wallop.

  • 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.

  • Enter The Fat Dragon

    Mar 6, 2020

    Most of the film’s jokes are lame and the plot would be familiar to those who have seen more than a couple of 80s’ Hong Kong movies.

  • God Of Gamblers

    Jun 21, 2021

    Much like a television movie version of ‘God of Gamblers’, but stripped of many of the elements that made the original work, this 2020 unofficial update is low budget and low entertainment value.

  • Jiu Jitsu

    Mar 6, 2021

    Entertaining for the most part and certainly packed with fight action, the film unfortunately suffers from muddled execution of its own brilliantly bananas concept.

  • Minari

    Apr 1, 2021

    ‘Minari’ is beautifully shot – Terence Malik would be proud – and directed with such assuredness that you quickly realise that you are watching something special.

  • Peninsula

    Dec 24, 2020

    ‘Peninsula’ had a lot to live up to and it all looked promising with the initial turbo-charged teaser trailer. But while there is a lot to enjoy here it’s unfortunately not a case of lightning in a bottle striking twice.

  • Russian Raid

    Mar 16, 2021

    The setup is basically a showcase for star Kotik and various real-life Russian MMA fighters to cut loose in a series of elaborate fight scenes and confrontations.
