• Big Bullet

    Feb 23, 2015

    Although the state of Hong Kong cinema is much approved now, it’s hard to forget the wretched state just a few years ago. ‘Big Bullet’ really stood out when it was released and remains a class act.

  • Black Mask

    Feb 23, 2015

    The action is still impressive, and deserves 4 stars, but the direction, annoying camera work and lack of real plot drag it down into the 3 star category.

  • Daddy, Father And Papa

    Mar 4, 2015

    Clifton Ko prefers to fill the film with dubious comedy and ‘Home Alone’-style action – certainly no compensation for even a few seconds of Sammo’s genius.

  • Dummy Mommy, Without A Baby

    Mar 9, 2015

    The film is reliant on the gentle charm of its principle cast and the genuine warmth of the relationships therein.

  • Embrace Your Shadow

    Mar 10, 2015

    The major problem with ‘Fighting For Love’ is the fact that the leading characters are so unsympathetic that the viewer cares little about their fight to be together.

  • Funeral March

    Mar 15, 2015

    By avoiding Hollywood histrionics or schmaltz, a well-worn plot again manages to seem fresh and deeply moving.

  • Hidden Heroes

    Mar 24, 2015

    At nearly two hours long, ‘Hidden Heroes’ is an ordeal that only those versed in S.A.S. survival tactics should ever attempt.

  • Love Undercover

    Apr 16, 2015

    Although it is a lightweight effort that doesn’t generate too many belly laughs, ‘Love Undercover’ succeeds with an immense charm that sweeps the viewer away.

  • Love Undercover 2: Love Mission

    Apr 16, 2015

    Joe Ma’s goal is to create a fun comedy that highlights the charm of Miriam Yeung and absorbs the viewer in her outlandish adventures – in this regard the film is a definite success.
