The Owl vs Bombo

You could be forgiven for not seeing Oscar winner Michelle Yeoh’s cinema debut in Sammo Hung’s 1984 clunker, Owl vs Bombo. A pretty face and far cry from her future baddassery, she could not save Sammos cringy self indulgent movie. Pairing with George Lams Owl, Hungs Bumbo busts more dance moves than skulls, insistent on pedalling the most awkward romance ever. Credit for not having Ms Malaysia herself as the target of his affections, the cringe:action ratio is leaning the wrong way. What little action there is however, is trademark Sammo Hung and golden era Hong Kong fight cinema. A youthful ..read more

Ballerina

8M ago
Deep down we’re all the Ballerina. Lee Chung-Hyun’s 2023 film Ballerina is a character study of quiet pain and loss, punctuated with visceral, over the top action and a villain you love to hate. Starring Jeon Jong-Seo (Rachel Jun) as a cold and detached security specialist in what is sure to put her on the map, Ballerina has a painfully methodical and unspoken narrative. Sparse though it may be, when the action hits, it hits hard with some genuinely creative storytelling in the brutal ballet of violence. Shout out to Kim Ji-Hoon as the villain Choi Pro, who is definitely choice bro. Handsome ..read more
