Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
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

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

No Score Yet Ajji (2017) Exactly as heartbreaking and infuriating as it needs to be.‐ Hollywood Reporter

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

17% The Adventurers (2017) The Adventurers is every bit as generic as its title ...‐ Hollywood Reporter

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
80% Shock Wave (2017) A conventional and predictable but disarmingly entertaining actioner.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Apr 25, 2017
80% 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

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

83% 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
84% 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
Read More | Posted May 11, 2016
22% Chongqing Hot Pot (2016) The trouble with Chongqing Hot Pot is that despite its brief running time, it takes too long to bring its various threads together.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Apr 12, 2016
67% Rise of the Legend (Huang feihong zhi yingxiong you meng ) (2016) Chow and To don't tinker with the lore's DNA too much, but fortunately they have Peng to freshen it up, and even the specter of Li does little to detract from his emerging star power.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Mar 8, 2016
93% The Mermaid (Mei ren yu) (2016) Chow and his army of writers (seriously, it took nine people to write this) get terrific support from a strong cast of regulars and newcomers who really sell the story, cheesy special effects aside.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Feb 23, 2016
10% Point Break (2015) Strips the silly fun and relatively straight-ahead narrative from the original for a humorless, if photogenic spin on extreme crime.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Dec 3, 2015
91% Coming Home (2015) Coming Home sinks into a conventional tragic romance rut that not even engaging performances by Gong and Chen can save.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Oct 1, 2015
70% The Beauty Inside (2015) Bottom line, The Beauty Inside works for the fantastical, soft focus romance it is.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 8, 2015
No Score Yet Ghadi (2013) Dora's extremely gentle satire about bigotry, redemption, faith and acceptance has the kind of sweet nature that helps it pull off its ridiculous premise.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Aug 19, 2015
86% Sunrise (2014) A surreal and haunting procedural.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted May 1, 2015
64% The Rewrite (2015) It's the fourth collaboration between Grant and writer-director Marc Lawrence, and it could be their strongest outing to date.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Feb 12, 2015
No Score Yet Love the One You Love (2014) Love the One You Love's strengths lie in its normalcy, in the recognizably banal beats of working at a relationship and the mundane factors that can sabotage them.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Oct 22, 2014
22% 3-D Sex and Zen: Extreme Ecstasy (2011) After about an hour of Wei's amusing escapades, however, things take a turn for the decidedly vicious.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jun 13, 2011
80% I Saw the Devil (2011) On any number of levels, Devil is troublesome at best, offensive at worst.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Oct 12, 2010
89% Son of a Lion (2007) Imperfect but timely drama that puts a human face on a frequently demonized people.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Oct 18, 2008
90% Crossing the Line (2007) Dresnok comes across as honest and credible, and his story is absolutely fascinating.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jan 16, 2007
93% The Host (2007) Bong's typical satirical, almost absurdist humor is in evidence here -- most vividly in a funeral scene that disintegrates into hysterical fisticuffs -- along with a touch of socio-political comment.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Sep 25, 2006
No Score Yet The Heavenly Kings (2006) This is a strong, assured debut and just the jolt the Hong Kong industry needs right now.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jun 22, 2006
No Score Yet Piteopaeneui gongshik (The Peter Pan Formula) (2005) Director Cho shows a steady hand and a good eye.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jun 22, 2006
96% Triad Election (Hak se wui yi wo wai kwai) (2007) For anyone who saw Election, Johnnie To's masterful, modern reworking of the Hong Kong Triad drama and its mythology, Election 2 isn't so much a sequel as a logical extension of the story.‐ Hollywood Reporter
