Film Review: ‘From Vegas to Macau III’

9 February 2016 9:22 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Featuring a table-tennis game and a low-tech robot smash-up as its highlights, Wong Jing and Andrew Lau’s “From Vegas to Macau III” is a gambling caper with model “Chinese Socialist characteristics,” meaning there’s hardly any gambling or any other naughty fun at all. Single-handedly killing a once internationally beloved, one-of-a-kind Hong Kong genre that Wong himself invented, the filmmakers have so mangled their material to suit mainland criteria that they’re left with a string of moronic gags barely held together by cheapskate production values. That “III” snagged the biggest household names in Hong Kong cinema only testifies to the irresistible lure of Chinese coin. If the second film’s boffo B.O. was an indication that bad taste rules, this third movie’s guaranteed success will prove there’s no bottom in such a market.

5 Highly Recommended Wong Kar-wai Films, to celebrate the honoring of Jet Tone Films

4 February 2016 5:01 AM, PST | AsianMoviePulse | See recent AsianMoviePulse news »

Wong Kar-wai at the Berlin Film Festival 2013/Cc-Attribution 3.0 Unported

Wong Kar-wai’s Jet Tone Films Ltd. will be honored at the upcoming Hong Kong Film Festival on March 21 to April 4, 2016 and some of the production company’s well-known movies will be screened during the course of the festival in spring.

Although a definitive list is yet to be released, you can look forward to some of these movies on the Hkiff screening.

Days of Being Wild

This 1990 drama stars Leslie Cheung, Maggie Cheung, Andy Lau, Carina Lau, Tony Leung Chiu-wai, and Jackie Cheung. Leslie Cheung plays Yuddy, a consummate playboy who breaks the heart of Li-zhen (Maggie Cheung) and Mimi (Carina Lau). The film casts light into the characters’ psychological drama, but has been labelled as frustrating by many audiences because it does not present a clear plot. This project started Wong Kar-wai’s collaboration with premier cinematographer Christopher Doyle »

At first look…

 

The title of the movie sounds like one large can of Whoop-Hash. Just the phrase “house of flying daggers” sounds like a Chinese translation for filling a “room full of uppercuts.” However, House of Flying Daggers is not a bar room brawl threat, but the name of a group of people who are waving their middle daggers at the government. The movie goes like this…

Sammo Hung is back in ‘The Bodguard (2016)’ – Teaser Trailer

12 January 2016 7:10 AM, PST | AsianMoviePulse | See recent AsianMoviePulse news »

 

Starring Sammo Hung ,Deng Chao ,Wang Xuebing,Tian LiangAndy Lau

It feels like its been forever since we last saw Sammo on the big screen  yet he’s actually had roles in a few films over the last few years – Rise of the Legend, Once Upon a time in Shanghai  . In those films though Sammos role was only in supporting, but now he’s back in lead and damn does this look good.

Sammo brings Andy Lau along for the ride (fresh of the excellent ‘ Saving Mr Wu‘). This is our first look official look at the film and based on the trailer this could be something special indeed.

Notes: This is Sammo’s first directed film since Once Upon a time in China and America (1997), Andy Lau is also a producer.

Look out for Yuen Biao who should have a role in the film, although at this stage »

The Bodyguard Trailer And Poster, Starring Sammo Hung, Andy Lau And Crime

7 January 2016 11:00 AM, PST | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

The great Sammo Hung delivers a great-looking first trailer for The Bodyguard, in which he stars as the titular character. Now in retirement, he has settled down in a small town on the border between Russia and China, where he befriends a young girl whose father (Andy Lau) becomes ensnared with local criminals. When the girl and her father disappear, Sammo must come to the rescue. Hung is both director and action director for the film and it looks as good as his classic work, albeit enhanced a bit more with wires. Still, it promises a tasty chunk of action. The Bodyguard is due for release on April 1. Check out the poster, the trailer, and a previous promotional photo in the gallery below. [Via Film Combat Syndicate...
