A Better TomorrowFeb 23, 2015
This is the ‘Citizen Kane’ of HK heroic bloodshed films and it never ages, even after repeat viewings.
A Better Tomorrow IIFeb 23, 2015
What this film lacks in plot, it sure as hell makes up for in action and the finale of ‘A Better Tomorrow II’ is a brutal display of guns, grenades and swordplay.
Bullet In The HeadFeb 27, 2015
‘Bullet in the Head’ still packs an enormous emotional punch and is very much one of the all time classics of Hong Kong cinema.
From Riches To RagsMar 15, 2015
Ricky Hui therefore ensures that this is entertaining despite its very unpredictable nature making it an acquired taste.
Hand Of DeathMar 22, 2015
Although not a masterpiece, ‘Hand Of Death’ is a good example of how quality quickly shines through and stands out in a crowded genre.
Heroes Shed No TearsAug 21, 2018
It might not be an essential Woo flick but one would be doing themselves an injustice in not checking out this early but highly entertaining action flick from the director.
Money CrazyApr 25, 2015
Though it’s not in the same league as the Michael Hui hits it tries to emulate, ‘Money Crazy’ is still reasonably entertaining and certainly better than Woo’s other ventures into the genre.
Once A ThiefMay 6, 2015
John Woo really surprised the audiences with this mixture of acrobatic gunplay action and comedy.
Plain Jane To The RescueMay 11, 2015
Episodic like a Hui Brothers film but without the sharp humour, ‘Plain Jane To The Rescue’ is an enjoyable diversion though it may test the patience of some fans.
Red CliffMay 16, 2015
Despite having no conclusion of its own, all of the groundwork of the characterisation and story make the next chapter an exciting prospect.
Red Cliff: Part IIMay 16, 2015
Part 2 is certainly the superior one, but both deserve individual credit for reviving the dying embers of John Woo’s career.
The KillerApr 3, 2015
It’s amazingly stylish with a brilliantly constructed story and some superb shoot-outs. If you call yourself an action movie fan then this one is going to be right up your alley!
