Whilst ambitious and obvious strong potential as a director, 90s version of Yen failed to resonance with a crowded Hong Kong market coinciding with the pending global financial...

Film Review: Shanghai Noon (2000) & Shanghai Knights (2003) - USA

Shanghai Noon (2000) & Shanghai Knights (2003) - USA Reviewed as part of Jackie Chan's 66th Birthday Celebration Series   Reviewed by Andrew Chan (Film Critics Circle of Australia)   Shanghai Noon (2000)   Back in 2000, when Jackie Chan is still capable of making actual funny movies. Chan’s pairing with Owen Wilson, not only launched a Hollywood career for his counterpart, but a hugely enjoyable action packed “east meet west” film about cowboys, imperial guards, royal family and American Indians. This exotic mix ends up working particularly well as Wilson’s comic timing matches with Chan’s slapstick action with almost...

Film Review: Iceman 2: The Time Traveler 冰封侠: 时空行者 (2018) - China

Iceman 2: The Time Traveler 冰封侠: 时空行者 (2018) - China   Reviewed by Andrew Chan (Film Critics Circle of Australia)      Not entirely sure what Donnie Yen was thinking when he made the sequel to an already terrible film - Iceman 3D. The sequel was filmed in 2014 and released suddenly 4 years later is simply bad filmmaking, terrible special effects, non existent acting and an atrocious and incoherent plot to boot. It is so bad that it is not even funny and when a village of people dies, there is zero emotions and when Donnie tries to act,...
