Not Suitable For Children

This is the second film I’ve seen Ryan Kwanten in after last year’s Griff The Invisible, and I continue to be impressed at how legitimately good of an actor he is, despite his portrayal of the idiot brother on HBO’s True Blood.  Here, Kwanten plays an Australian party animal named Jonah whose life is turned […]

The Four

Gordon Chan’s The Four, based off a Wu Xia novel by Wen Ruian, is a convoluted mess of a film, that still manages to entertain through its action and flair. The film focuses on the Divine Constabulary, a department commissioned by the Emperor himself, to handle secret missions and operate in the shadows. Zhuge Zhengwo […]

Wu Dang

Patrick Leung’s kung fu film Wu Dang is one part Indiana Jones and another part Goonies, mixed with some great kung fu action that makes for a really fun film, with the exception of an awkward subplot. Professor Tang (Vincent Zhao) and his daughter Ning (Josie Xu) are on their way to help a family […]

As the title aptly suggests, Legendary Amazons is a wonderful kung fu film that delivers a hell of a good time. The Jackie Chan produced film is a remake of the Shaw Brothers and director Chang Keng’s classic, The 14 Amazons, that is based off of the Chinese folk tale of the Yang Generals. The […]
