Film Review: Escape Plan 3: The Extractors (2019) - USA

Escape Plan 3: The Extractors (2019) - USA Reviewed by Andrew Chan (Film Critics Circle of Australia)   Probably the most unwanted sequel in years comes in the form of Sylvester Stallone’s “Escape Plan 3: The Extractors”. After the simply atrocious “Escape Plan 2”, this follow up is actually a better film, but that’s not hard to pass the mark. The film is saved by the presence of “Ip Man 3” martial arts star Max Zhang who impresses with his Kung fu moves in the finale and Harry Shum Jr who shines in the small role before dying off midway...

Film Review: Paskal: The Movie (2018) - Malaysia (Netflix)

Paskal: The Movie (2018) - Malaysia (Netflix) Reviewed by Andrew Chan (Film Critics Circle of Australia)   “Operation Red Sea” meets “Wolf Warrior” gets a Malaysian production overhaul in “Paskal: The Movie”, directed by Adrien Teh and up and coming action star Hairul Azreen.

The main problem of the film lies in the script and acting whilst being overblown by the visceral action sequences and various gun-fu affair. Azreen shows that he is...

Film Review: Fong Sai Yuk: The Beginning (新方世玉前传侠者无畏) (2020) - China

Fong Sai Yuk: The Beginning (新方世玉前传侠者无畏) (2020) - China As part of the ongoing Film Critics - Martial Arts series - “Discovering the world of Martial Arts cinema” With big boots to fill, the latest reboot of folk legend hero “Fong Sai Yuk”, made famous by Jet Li and Vincent Zhao in the 90s, it’s probably timely that the Chinese streaming giant takes an interest. Casting the fairly uncharismatic Narisu Bai in the title role remains the start of the long list of disappointment. For martial arts cinema fans, there is not enough action to sustain the paper thin story...

Film Review: The Tuxedo (2002) – USA

Film Review: The Tuxedo (2002) – USA Reviewed as part of Jackie Chan's 66th Birthday Celebration Series Reviewed by Andrew Chan (Film Critics Circle of Australia) I think we can all agree that Jackie Chan does not need CGI effects to enhance his Kung Fu skills. Whilst it is fun to see Chan attempt to play a taxi driver thrown into a James Bond situation and gaining magically superman-like kung fu skills after wearing a tuxedo. Add in the sexy Jennifer Love Hewitt as the sidekick, the premises seem fun enough for a 100 minute ride. However, the film drags...
