Film Review: The Grand Grandmaster 乜代宗師 (2020) - Hong Kong

The Grand Grandmaster 乜代宗師 (2020) - Hong Kong Reviewed by Andrew Chan (Film Critics Circle of Australia)   Despite popular Cantonese stand up comedian Dayo Wong’s most honest intentions, his second directorial effort in “The Grand Grandmaster” is really one big mistake after another. The film is constantly lagging in its overdue jokes, comic timing is often turned off and a rather subdued Wong does not help the entire proceeding. The only saving grace comes in the form of Annie Liu in her first physical role as a professional boxer who more than looks the part with the heavily punches...

Film Review: Enter the Fat Dragon 肥龍過江 (2020) - Hong Kong

Enter the Fat Dragon 肥龍過江 (2020) - Hong Kong Reviewed by Andrew Chan (Film Critics Circle of Australia)   Donnie Yen’s follow up after the Kung Fu retirement of Ip Man career comes up with a highly entertaining, fun action affair in “Enter the Fat Dragon”. In fact, this is easily Wong Jing best produced film in years and reminds long time action fans of the glory days of Jackie Chan’s action comedy with an inject of indirect modern day social commentary. Impressive are the action scenes, Yen is comfortably in a fat suit and as agile as Sammo Hung...

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...
