Film Review: God of War (2017) - Hong Kong / China

God of War (2017) - Hong Kong / China Review by Andrew ChanBack in the 2000s, historical martial arts epic was made in high frequency, with fewer outputs in the 2010s. It's probably timely that director Gordon Chan returns to form with the latest epic God of War. Starring the highly talented Vincent Zhao who was once potentially tipped by Tsui Hark to take over the mantle from Jet Li. Sammo Hung also offers his hand of support in the role of failed general being succeeded by Zhao. Perhaps the best thing in the film goes to the welcome back...

Film Review: IT (2017) - USA

IT (2017) - USA Review by Andrew ChanClowns are literally and figuratively scary and are most children hideous nightmare. Stephen King's IT is iconic with the Pennywise character and it is so scary and chilling that the film will leave most faint hearted audience breathing heavily. There are so many thrilling and genuinely scary moments in this latest remake that put many other Stephen King's adaptations to shame. Full credit to director Andrés Muschietti by taking us on a highly visual yet psychological creepy journey that uses all genre tricks and situations to make us al the more frightened.  The...

Film Review: American Made (2017) - USA

American Made (2017) - USA Review by Andrew ChanOne of the best pilot in the world is Tom "Top Gun" Cruise and being in the trade for so many years have not diminished his steady fast coolness. In one of the best film of the year thus far, Cruise managed to play real life CIA, top airline pilot turned drug smuggler, informant, White House related delivery man in the enthralling life of Barry Seal. Like "Catch Me If You Can", you just can't stop wanting Cruise to win and somewhat escape and succeed. It is that kind of magically ride...

Film Review: King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017) - USA

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017) - USA Review by Andrew ChanThis blockbuster of a film directed by the voltage fuelled Guy Richie failed for many reasons. First up, the lead actor Charlie Hunnam is by no means an A-list recognisable star. Sure he had some success on the TV screen, but lacks the charisma to carry such a big epic historical tale. Secondly, the film have too much Richie's footprints all over it and in many circumstances, it overshadow its own material. Too many words and things are happening at an unassuming pace and that's just not on....

Film Review: The Way of the Dragon (1972) - Hong Kong

The Way of the Dragon (1972) - Hong Kong Review by Andrew ChanBruce Lee showed the world what he is capable of in his first two films. The Way of the Dragon is filmed largely within local studio set pieces and also in the ancient backdrop of Rome. It is not Lee's best effort, but most will remember it for his directing debut. The 4K remastered is certainly a welcome manner to look at this film. It is especially clear for those that take special note of the famous fight at the Roman colosseum between Chuck Norris and Lee.
