Film Review: She Shoots Straight 皇家女將 (1990) - Hong Kong

She Shoots Straight 皇家女將 (1990) - Hong Kong Reviewed by Andrew Chan (Film Critics Circle of Australia)   The 90s was a time of great cinematic heights of Hong Kong action cinema and in the sub-genre of kick ass heroine, we had the pleasure of action superstars Michelle Yeoh, Cynthia Rothrock, Moon Lee and Jade Leung. “She Shoots Straight”, directed by Corey Yuen and produced by Sammo Hung is a largely forgotten affair. The film stars Joyce Godenzi (also known as Mrs Sammo Hung and former Miss Hong Kong winner) facing off against the likes of Yuen Wah and the famous...

Film Review: Walk With Me 雙魂 (2019) - Malaysia / Hong Kong

Walk With Me 雙魂 (2019) - Malaysia / Hong Kong   Reviewed by Andrew Chan (Film Critics Circle of Australia) Malaysian filmmaker Ryon Lee continues his fusion of Malaysian and Hong Kong filmmaking with the atmospheric bit part horror and psychological thriller “Walk With Me”. With good performances from the hard working Michelle Wai and welcoming veterans display of Anna Ng, Emily Kwan and Richard Ng, the film tries hard to revoke J-Horror films as well as Hollywood counterparts. The film works at times and becomes a better character study than an actual horror film.   Michelle Wai headlines the film...

Film Review: The Current War (2017) - USA

The Current War (2017) - USA Reviewed by Andrew Chan (Film Critics Circle of Australia)   Released in cinemas 2 years after its TIFF debut due to the Harvey Weinstein’s allegations, “The Current War” is lavish in its period set designs with top notch A-list casting of Benedict Cumberbatch, Michael Shannon, Nicholas Hoult and Tom Holland. Somehow the film remains rather average and stale with a lack of crucial excitement factor or adrenaline going for it. Instead we get the classic old battle of AC and DC between two powerhouse of electricity Sir Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse. Satirical comedy...

Series Review: Designated Survivor: 60 Days (60일, 지정생존자) (TV-2019) - South Korea

Designated Survivor: 60 Days (60일, 지정생존자) (TV-2019) - South Korea   Reviewed by Andrew Chan (Film Critics Circle of Australia) Season 1: 16 episodes (1 hour each)   Riding on the back of the American successful TV series “Designated Survivor”, we get a rehash of sorts with everything Korean, from White House to Blue House, from Middle East threats to North Korea to a story that rhymes with the Korean general public. To say that this series succeeded is an understatement as it manages to stay fresh, despite many elements being inspired by the original and at the same time...
