Pulsating and potent 'Drug War'

A great script usually promises half the success of a movie, and “Drug War” delivers just that. Director Johnnie To Kei-Fung (杜琪峰) works with frequent collaborator, scriptwriter and co-director Wai Ka-Fai (韋家輝), producing yet another enthralling cop-versus-robber chase. As the movie opens, To literally cuts to the chase as the story unfolds with a chase scene.

Lightweight but fun 'Hitchcock'

The man who made “Psycho” was no lightweight, though he kind of comes off that way in “Hitchcock.” Starring Anthony Hopkins as Alfred Hitchcock and Helen Mirren as his wife and collaborator, Alma, “Hitchcock” puts a featherlight yet entertaining touch on the behind-the-scenes struggle to make the mother of all slasher films.

'Parker' is rather perfunctory

“Parker” plays like the bloodiest promotional video ever made for Palm Beach tourism. Stabbings, explosions and furniture-smashing brawls occur at some of the ritziest (and name-checked) locations within the sun-splashed, pastel-soaked slab of Florida opulence. Kinda gives a whole new meaning to the idea of The Breakers.

Everybody must die, almost

From the beautiful faces of the charming cast posing dashingly in the movie posters, it seems that “Saving General Yang's” marketing strengths might be selling its brawns rather than its brains.

Insight in the making

With unforgettable works from “The Bride with White Hair” to “Fearless,” Director Ronny Yu (于仁泰) is finally back in the spotlight after seven year of silence with “Saving General Yang,” a historical war movie set in the Northern Song Dynasty (A.D. 960-1127).

G.I. Joe: Retaliation

If a big, dumb action movie knows it's a big, dumb action movie and revels in that fact, is that preferable to a big, dumb action movie making the mistake of thinking it's significant, relevant art?

Yes, but 100 times no

To some, marriage is a word; but to others, it is a sentence. That's why, in the newly released movie, “Say Yes” (101次求婚), it takes 101 proposals to get the girl of your dreams.

'Creatures' concocts familiar teen angst

The genders have been reversed but the supernatural, star-crossed teen angst remains firmly intact in “Beautiful Creatures,” which clearly aims to pick up where the “Twilight” franchise left off.

'Promised Land,' engaging and entertaining

“Promised Land” is an engaging and entertaining — if preachy — look at Big Energy and fracking — the land-and-water-wrecking practice of drilling and pumping water and chemicals into the ground to extract natural gas from shale.
