Film Review: Ip Man: Kung Fu Master (2019) - China

Ip Man: Kung Fu Master (2019) - China   Reviewed by Andrew Chan (Film Critics Circle of Australia) Another lesser cash-in due to the current release of the real deal “Ip Man 4” comes a better effort than the atrocious “Ip Man and the Four Kings”.  Dennis To stars in the headline role as Ip Man, and is for most of the film at ease with the heavily burdened role. Having successfully played a bit part in the original Ip Man sequels as well as the younger version of the master in the average “Legend is Born -  Ip Man”...

Film Review: Invincible Dragon 九龍不敗 (2019) - Hong Kong

Invincible Dragon 九龍不敗 (2019) - Hong Kong Reviewed by Andrew Chan (Film Critics Circle of Australia)   Rising action star Max Zhang continues his run of leading martial arts roles with Fruit Chan’s underwhelming “Invincible Dragon”. Billed with MMA fanfare pitting Zhang against MMA Anderson Silva in a Macau tower showdown. The problem starts with this premises as Zhang seems to be acting in a totally different movie. Director Fruit Chan misfires once again in another commercial cinematic attempt, it is perhaps fitting that his next effort bound to be a social commentary flick.   Max Zhang is undoubtedly talented...

Film Review: Missing 失蹤 (2019) - Hong Kong

Missing 失蹤 (2019) - Hong Kong   Reviewed by Andrew Chan (Film Critics Circle of Australia) In one of more refreshing take on the crowded cliche horror thriller genre, debutant Director Ronnie Chau is largely promising in creating a illuminating atmospheric experience for the cinema goers. The film works best whenever it switches to a parallel universe where time travels and ghosts collides with the reality connecting through creepy buildings and Sai Kung forest locations. The setting builds the tension and the story backdrop remains the core as the film succeeds in engaging the audience without having to resort to cliches...

Film Review: Guilt By Design 催眠·裁決 (2019) - Hong Kong

Guilt By Design 催眠·裁決 (2019) - Hong Kong Reviewed by Andrew Chan (Film Critics Circle of Australia)   There is a lot to like and appreciate about the latest trio of directors’ (Lau Wing-Tai, Kenneth Lai and Paul Sze) efforts. Guilt By Design” is extremely well crafted psychological courtroom action thriller that engages you from start to the almost too sensationalised and over the top “Jackie Chan’s style” finale. Nick Cheung excels in the role of a professional hypnotist appointed to be a juror in a criminal trial. It helps when the premises of the film remain fresh as we enjoy...

Film Review: A Witness Out of the Blue 犯罪現場 (2019) - Hong Kong

A Witness Out of the Blue 犯罪現場 (2019) - Hong Kong   Reviewed by Andrew Chan (Film Critics Circle of Australia)   Louis Koo continues to be the most stable and bankable Hong Kong actor this year with yet another convincing turn as the complicated robber with a diverting heart. “A Witness Out of the Blue” is a crime thriller romantic drama produced by veteran Derek Yee and directed by Fung Chih-chiang (in one of his best directorial efforts to date). Taking a leaf out of Hollywood crime thrillers, Fung inject a sense of energy in the numerous characters and supporting...
