Movie review: The Shopaholics

The Shopaholics doesn't deviate too much (if any) from the Lunar New Year release playbook. Namely, it depends on star power and a lot of cameos to buoy a story that is as light and fluffy as a tub of Cool Whip.

In fact, it's probably the best martial arts/western/period piece mashup with a Robin Hood influence that you're likely to come across.

Movie review: The Detonator

When the bottom of the Hong Kong movie industry began to fall out, director Leung Po-Chi soon found himself scrambling to find work. Most of his releases over the past two decades have been similar to this low-budget fare shot in eastern Europe featuring a leading actor whose best years are behind him.
