Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
No Score Yet Distinction (Fei tung faan heung) (2018) You'd have to have a heart made of absolute granite not to be moved by Distinction. ‐ Hollywood Reporter

No Score Yet No. 1 Chung Ying Street (2017) Despite a miniscule budget (that kept shrinking), Chiu has turned in an eerily relevant drama...‐ Hollywood Reporter

No Score Yet Strawberry Flavored Plastic (2018) Strawberry Flavored Plastic works remarkably well as an often-chilling character study of a homicidal sociopath over the course of his self-described therapy, among other things.‐ Hollywood Reporter

No Score Yet Retreat (2017) Retreat is a lean, efficient chiller, if not an outright terrifying one, anchored by an understated central performance from Kim Allan.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted May 11, 2018
No Score Yet Puzzle (2018) A slow, respectably compelling start that recalls David Fincher's The Game (narratively, if not tonally) eventually gives way to a more rote thriller with a less than satisfying conclusion that's sure to infuriate many, many viewers.‐ Hollywood Reporter

No Score Yet The Receptionist (Jie Xian Yuan) (2018) Timely and important, if somewhat familiar.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted May 10, 2018
No Score Yet The Backstreet Noire (2018) Kang's narrative meandering, reliance on archetypes and lack of focus (except on how best to debase his lead actress) detract from the film's novelty.‐ Hollywood Reporter

No Score Yet What a Wonderful Family! 3: My Wife, My Life (2018) Despite Fumie, Tomiko, Shigeko and Shoto's wife Noriko (Yu Aoi) never quite getting woke, a pesky sitcom vibe and a bloated run time, Wonderful Family! 3 has a sweetness that's hard to resist.‐ Hollywood Reporter

No Score Yet Looking for Lucky (2018) The film toggles between absurdism and dour drama without ever losing sight of the father-son relationship that underpins the narrative.‐ Hollywood Reporter

Read More | Posted Mar 19, 2018
No Score Yet The Vanished (2018) Only those who've never seen a mystery thriller before will be surprised by the film's third act twists, but first-time filmmaker Lee handles the hoary material gracefully, and with just enough creativity ... to raise the material.‐ Hollywood Reporter

33% The Monkey King 3 (2018) Cheang does his able best to balance a love story with the heightened fantasy action expected of the previous two films, and after a rocky start he largely succeeds.‐ Hollywood Reporter

Read More | Posted Jan 25, 2018
No Score Yet I Can Speak (Ai Kaen Seupikeu) (2017) As intellectually and morally unassailable as it is, I Can Speak, as a film, is emotionally manipulative and narratively schizophrenic.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jan 25, 2018
No Score Yet The Bold, the Corrupt, and the Beautiful (2017) The film tells an outrageously labyrinthine tale of power, corruption and lies pivoting on a ruthless matriarch and the daughters she is ostensibly gaining all her wealth for.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jan 4, 2018
No Score Yet Ajin: Demi-Human (Ajin) (2017) A pedestrian sci-fi jaunt that brings nothing new to the table.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jan 4, 2018
50% Along With the Gods: The Two Worlds (2017) A three-hanky weepy that's not nearly as grating as it should be.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jan 4, 2018
No Score Yet The Empty Hands (2017) A willfully oddball martial arts drama that rises above its modest station thanks to star Stephy Tang's lead performance.‐ Hollywood Reporter

Read More | Posted Oct 24, 2017

Read More | Posted Oct 21, 2017
No Score Yet Narratage (Narat├óju) (2017) Simply retrograde, fan-fiction level hokum that allows some icky messaging to slip past the radar.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Oct 20, 2017
No Score Yet The Brink (2017) [Li has] put more artistic weight on the film than it can bear and needs to accept pulpy entertainments like The Brink for what they are.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Oct 16, 2017
No Score Yet Glass Garden (2017) There's a fair amount to unpack in Glass Garden, which, for its often forced lyricism and muddy storytelling, makes for a compelling view.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Oct 16, 2017
71% Ajji (2017) Exactly as heartbreaking and infuriating as it needs to be.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Oct 16, 2017
0% Sky Hunter (2017) Sky Hunter barely even cuts it as an action film.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Oct 13, 2017
No Score Yet Berlin Drifters (2017) Berlin Drifters will ... be hampered by its raw production values and hit-and-miss performances, but even those can't really disguise the film's fundamentally sweet-and traditional-heart.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 14, 2017
17% The Adventurers (2017) The Adventurers is every bit as generic as its title ...‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Aug 27, 2017
No Score Yet Paradox (Sha po lang: taam long) (2017) Wilson whips up an efficiently sleek actioner that knows where its comfort zone is and doesn't stray from it.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Aug 15, 2017
No Score Yet Dealer/Healer (2017) Lau has done a fine job of recreating the period, but he's let down by an overstuffed script by Chan Man-keung that can't decide on what it wants to be.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted May 22, 2017
No Score Yet 29 + 1 (2016) A welcome departure from the martial actioners, retro gangster epics and crass comedies Hong Kong has largely been pumping out lately.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted May 17, 2017
No Score Yet With Prisoners (2017) At times visually arresting and intellectually engaging, Wong too often hijacks himself by shoehorning in some stunted backstory and making random, questionable creative choices.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted May 4, 2017
100% Love Off the Cuff (2017) Love Off the Cuff's little parts add up to a much greater whole.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted May 3, 2017

Read More | Posted Apr 25, 2017
83% Vampire Cleanup Department (Gao geung jing dou fu) (2017) Vampire Cleanup Department's special effects (by Fong Wai-kit) are suitably cheesy, and supporting turns by favorites Siu Yam-yam, comedian Jim Chim and Eric Tsang lend the whole affair some old-school credibility.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Mar 16, 2017
No Score Yet Bravestorm (2017) A typically nonsense piece of science-fiction entertainment that will please fanpersons of the form ...‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Mar 15, 2017
No Score Yet Single Rider (2017) A reflective and refreshing character-driven drama.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Mar 12, 2017
74% Headshot (2017) Despite Headshot's flaws, it does have a mesmerizing quality in its illustration of humanity's dark side, social and spiritual. It's a film that coaxes into its world rather than drags.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Feb 28, 2017
No Score Yet Scoop! (2016) Scoop! may not be terribly original, but it is an engaging and resonant low-key drama about an aging paparazzo trying to reinvent himself and stay relevant as his skill set becomes obsolete.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jan 25, 2017
No Score Yet 52Hz, I Love You (2017) Predictable though it may be ... Wei has been careful to replicate the whimsical ebbs, flows and beats required of the form, and 52Hz, I Love You captures the cotton candy essence of the musical romance rather effectively.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jan 25, 2017
No Score Yet Pandora (2017) Pandora ticks off all the current societal scares and packs them into one slightly bloated, often shrieking action drama that nevertheless gets the job done despite its worst narrative instincts.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jan 24, 2017
50% Enter The Warriors Gate (Warrior's Gate) (2017) There are few moments in Warrior's Gate that seasoned viewers will not recognize for what they are the minute they happen.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jan 18, 2017
86% I Am a Hero (2015) The tired zombie apocalypse genre gets a refreshing shot in the arm in Shinsuke Sato's I Am a Hero.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Oct 24, 2016
83% Godzilla Resurgence (Shin Godzilla) (2016) The mother of all allegorical monsters takes on new meaning in a talky, vaguely nationalistic reboot that slips on like a comfortable sweater, even if it's a sweater with some holes in it.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 26, 2016
No Score Yet Cheol-won-gi-haeng (End of Winter) (2015) Kim Dae-hwan's debut is an assured, if occasionally labored exercise in uncomfortable family dynamics rooted in the simmering resentment and repressed rage that only families can engender.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Aug 15, 2016
100% Kill Zone 2 (Saat po long 2) (2016) Ultimately the story is secondary to the action, which rarely lets up and never lets viewers down.‐ Hollywood Reporter
