Film Review: Big Brother (2018) - Hong Kong

Big Brother (2018) - Hong Kong     Reviewed by Andrew Chan (Film Critic Circle of Australia)   Being a pet passion project for Donnie Yen, “Big Brother” is a good film that is equally emotional, engaging and also provides enough well meaning social commentary to boot. It is rare that the best moments in a Donnie Yen film is not a fight scene, but rather Yen as teacher helping his students in out of the box fashion in loggerhead with the out dated and highly competitive Hong Kong education system.    Yen has always been a visionary, his films...

Film Review: Tomb Raider (2018) - USA

Tomb Raider (2018) - USA     Reviewed by Andrew Chan (Film Critics Circle of Australia)    One of the best thing about the latest Tomb Raider reboot is the way our key heroine (played by the wonderful and raw Alicia Vikander) remains rather grounded and extremely human. Whilst Angelina Jolie made the video game heroine as a sex icon, Vikander made her like a strong modern day female character. Teaming with “Into the Badlands” superstar Daniel Wu, the duo venture into the brutal forest of the devil’s island in search of the holy grail and her long lost father....

Film Review: Crazy Rich Asians (2018) - USA

Crazy Rich Asians (2018) - USA   Reviewed by Andrew Chan (Film Critics Circle of Australia)     Probably the most important film of 2018 comes in the form of “Crazy Rich Asians” starring an all Asian cast and directed by Jon Chu in a romantic comedy setting backed by big Hollywood studio - Warner Brothers. Seems like a dream come true, it is for many people and thinking about the trailblazers for Asian representation for Hollywood. The road is long, difficult and often emotional. There is that aspect of feeling surrounding the hype and thank goodness the film is...

Film Review: Adieu 告別之前 (2018) - Hong Kong

Adieu 告別之前 (2018) - Hong Kong     Reviewed by Andrew Chan (Film Critics Circle of Australia)   One of the biggest issue with the well meaning and manufactured “tear-jerker” film about death, life end of journey and cancer is poor filmmaking techniques from the basics to handling strong dramatic scenes. Yes, there will be bound to be a few tears, but mostly forced out of the end of life situations than the developed storyline or plot. There is a lot of good things to say and end of life message the film tries extremely hard to portray, but none...
