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: The Fatal Raid 不義之戰 (2019) - Hong Kong

The Fatal Raid 不義之戰 (2019) - Hong Kong Reviewed by Andrew Chan (Film Critics Circle of Australia)   The best thing about this action film is that it manages to bring back 90s Hong Kong action cinema stars namely Patrick Tam, Michael Tong and the much missed “Black Cat” heroine Jade Leung. Originally billed as the sequel to “Special Female Force”, Director Jacky Lee twists and turns with plenty of action set pieces that is often better than the over used slow motion direction and incoherent storyline. The result is a mixed bag, a reminder of former glory with the constraints...
