Film Review: Bad Genius (2017) - Thailand

Bad Genius (2017) - Thailand Review by Andrew ChanBad Genius is so much fun, filled with moments of real tension as if we are watching a live crime robbery or an engaging heist thriller. As we all know, the Thai national box office winner is a film about how a group of high schoolers attempts to cheat the school exams and eventually the International University Admission test. The chemistry between the relative newcomers simply strikes gold (charmingly played by Chutimon Chuengcharoensukying, Chanon Santinatornkul, Teeradon Supapunpinyo, Eisaya Hosuwan).   Director Nattawut Poonpiriya knows precisely how to film a commercially successful film...

Film Review: SPL 3 / Paradox (2017) - Hong Kong

SPL 3 / Paradox (2017) - Hong Kong Review by Andrew ChanLouis Koo goes berserk in his most physical performance to date and even manage to make Liam Neeson looks proud in the process as the father on a mission desperately searching for his missing daughter in Pattaya. It is also easily Koo best ever performance and most certainly in line for a Best Actor award. Director Wilson Yip returns to the directing chair for the third instalment and like its predecessors, it is brutally entertaining and tension filled from start to finish and not a film for the faint...

Film Review: A Better Tomorrow (1986) - Hong Kong

A Better Tomorrow (1986) - Hong Kong Review by Andrew ChanRecently undergone remastered work for a 4K HD release is John Woo's iconic action classic - A Better Tomorrow.

Film Review: Tai Chi Master (1993) - Hong Kong

Tai Chi Master (1993) - Hong Kong Review by Andrew Chan Viewing on the best possible version available, the Dragon Dynasty Blu Ray, it plays well enough on my TV screen without being perfect with the typical flaws find in many 90s Asian cinema releases. Still, Tai Chi Master is an amazing exhibition for both Jet Li and Michelle Yeoh to show their highlight martial arts reels. It helps when the director in chair is master Yuen Woo Ping and costarring Chin Siu Ho as Li's best buddy turned foe. This is an all time classic and the fight sequences...
