The Great Wall Trailer


William Garin and Pero Tovar journey it far and distant lands in a bid to find weapons to help them prevail in fierce battles. Their travels take them to China where they approach the heads of one of their most feared armies. William tells the men that they wish to trade but their request falls on deaf ears and the two foreigners are locked up in a cell.

When Garin learns that the soldiers stationed at The Great Wall of China are protecting their land from something much worse than any human army, he decides that he must earn the soldiers trust and join to fight with their cause.

The Great Wall is acting as a barrier between human civilisation and a continually growing number of wild monsters that crawl the land like humongous dragon lizards. Their main aim is to procreate and feed on any other living being that they come across. The army who protect humanity have spent their entire life training in a bid to defeat the monsters but as the four legged creatures grow stronger their mission becomes harder and harder. The fighters and their warriors must use all their force to try overcome the onslaught once and for all.

A Simple Life Review


Extraordinary
Based on a true story, this gently episodic drama beautifully portrays the connection between a man and his long-time family maid. It's funny, involving and so well-observed that it sticks in the mind for a long, long time.

Ah Tao (Yip) has served four generations of the Leung family over 60 years and is a friendly, cheerful fixture in the community. Her only real company is her cat until busy filmmaker Roger (Lau) returns to live in the family's Hong Kong flat. When she suffers a stroke, Tao doesn't want Roger to care for her, so he arranges for her to live in a nursing home and visits her regularly during her recovery. As the years pass, what was once a nanny-child relationship becomes something much more meaningful for both of them.

Infernal Affairs Review


Good
A twisted pretzel of secrecy and betrayal that always seems on the verge of exploding into an inferno of gunfire, Infernal Affairs strives to be the end-all, be-all of undercover cop movies and comes so close to achieving its goal that one feels petty for registering any complaints. Instead of setting up the standard cop/criminal dichotomy, this film tries to turn genre expectations on their head, blending shades of black and white morality into a foggy gray from the get-go and undermining audiences even further with an almost comically complex plot. This is a film where you can be convinced of one thing only, that you won't know where things stand until the absolute last scene, if then - whether or not some will have mentally checked out by that point is another question.

In its clever introduction, Infernal Affairs presents a triad boss who assembles a band of kids from his gang to infiltrate the Hong Kong police academy - this is a criminal with an unusually long-range vision. Years later, the principals come into focus: there's the undercover cop, Yan (Tony Leung), struggling with his identity after so many years as a fake criminal, and the highly-placed internal affairs officer, Ming (Andy Lau), who turns out to be one of the triad moles. Throwing another loop into the plot is the fact that the triad Yan has infiltrated is the same one Ming is working for, each one knowing that there is a double agent on the opposite side (which is actually their side), whom they have been assigned by their respective bosses to root out.
