This low-budget superhero movie looks good on the outside, but is mostly hot air when it comes to its story and characters.
'Vengeance of an Assassin' is impossible to take seriously but if you grew up on the low-budget 80s action movies of Cannon Films and similar studios, it is possible to enjoy.
A bizarre, complex, and provocative alien film that is more visually stunning than gory and violent as others before it, "Annihilation" explores deeper and darker themes than just our natural responses to otherness.
Overly ambitious in presenting too many perspectives, the film lacks a clear direction for both the characters and the audience, wasting a promising opening and convincing performances.
"The Cured" is a dark and depressing zombie film about guilt and politics, presented in rather obvious metaphors that are hyper-relevant in the current times of divisive ideologies.
Stunning visuals, astounding scores, and flawless performances can’t compensate for an overly ambitious film trying to mix a love story with terrorism and oceanography.
Boasting a mix of frenzied thrills and social commentary, 'Train to Busan' is very much alive on arrival.
Boasting a star-studded cast, a dark and intriguing plot, and a director-actor brother duo, "Gringo" starts off with a promising set-up only to lose its steam as the film progresses, leaving a bad aftertaste.
Undeniably one of the best local farcical films to date, fans of The Noose who have missed Lulu, everyone’s favourite PRC in leopard print, won’t be disappointed with this uproarious comedy that will have audiences laughing from start to finish.
This 'Alien' instalment will make you scream, but as much out of frustration as in terror, its grandeur undercut by an unremarkable stable of characters and an uninspired plot.
Special effects shouldn’t be a main criticism for most films, but the enormous attention paid to its effects makes it impossible to brush aside.
A thrilling sci-fi horror film that’s well-paced and scary, Life does its illustrious genre forebears justice.
