... unapologetic piece of B-movie termite art...

Dec 14, 2017 | Full Review…

A conventional and predictable but disarmingly entertaining actioner.

All Shock Wave really has going for it is scope and spectacle, which you can get in any big dumb American blockbuster, and Lau's upright handsomeness and bravado, which you can also get in much better films.

Nov 2, 2018 | Full Review…

Yau stands out in the Hong Kong crowd for his willingness to blend two very different styles of filmmaking: the traditional Chinese epic drama and the high octane thrillers that pull in the crowds today.

A taut crime thriller with just the right blend of action, suspense, and pathos.

Yau does an impressive job of keeping the audience engaged amid the barrage of car crashes, shoot-outs and explosions.
