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

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.

Film Review: Fearless (2006) - Hong Kong / China

Film Review: Fearless (2006) - Hong Kong / China

Fearless (2006) - Hong Kong / China Review by Andrew ChanBilled as Jet Li's final wushu film, Fearless directed by Ronny Yu is an epic affair. Watching the director cut's version with a duration of 2 hours and 35 minutes, a good 35 minutes longer, it definitely feels more complete, developed and coherent. In the former theatrical version, the middle redemption part is far too short to be convincing. A decade onwards, Fearless is every bit as brilliant and the well meaning wushu message of the biggest enemy is thyself plays extremely well with the three parts storyline. If this...

Film Review: The Adventurers (2017) - Hong Kong / China

The Adventurers (2017) - Hong Kong / China Reviewed by Andrew ChanRemaking John Woo's classic comedy heist film Once a Thief is a tough ask. Directed by Stephen Fung and starring Andy Lau, Shu Qi, French actor Jean Reno, Zhang Jing Chu and Taiwanese Tony Yang, it works as a fun mindless entertainment that goes a tad too long. Films about stealing priceless valuables and the process behind the heist is always a joy to watch. Fung if anything managed to make everyone looking at their coolest and it's easy to say when you three of the most photogenic actors...

Film Review: The Saint (2017) - USA

Film Review: The Saint (2017) - USA

The Saint (2017) - USA Reviewed by Andrew ChanIn terms of cinematic experience this is as flat and non-interesting as it gets. When the storyline is so tired, it's not difficult to imagine how The Saints, original a TV series pilot converted into a movie after falling to impress TV studio heads. Pegged as Sir Roger Moore final film appearance (also starred in the original film), the film suffers from lack of action, gadgets and thrilling moments that is supposed to make up of a spy thriller like The Saints.  Adam Rayner simply lacks the charisma for the coolness in...
