The inevitable John Wick 4 has been confirmed

If you've seen the end of John Wick: Chapter 3 -- Parabellum then you know that it wasn't really the end. In fact, I'd argue the film was much akin to Infinity War in that it set up the greater conflict to come and felt more like ...

Review: John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum

When John Wick was first announced it wasn't that clear that the franchise would be anything special. After all, Keanu Reeves had made plenty of action films before that of varying quality, and elderly action hero coming back for reven...

Review: Master Z: Ip Man Legacy

Legendary Wing Chun practitioner Ip Man is famous for popularizing the Wing Chun style the world over and for having taught Bruce Lee, among other students. You'd think that legacy alone would be ripe for great films, but this didn't truly ...

Review: Triple Threat

There's an unspoken rule in cinema that team-up films are typically bad. While Marvel seems to have bucked that trend, other studios still struggle with giving all of their leading stars proper screen time. You'll have a bunch of A-list act...

Kung Fu Hustle 2 is officially in the works

15 years ago, Stephen Chow unleashed his magnum opus Kung Fu Hustle upon the world. The film was a glorious send-up of kung fu cinema tropes with a dash of absurdist comedy for good measure. Featuring the likes of Chow in the starring role ...

Review: Buffalo Boys

International movies have the unique ability to share with us stories that we may not know about in easily consumable bites. It's not that every single movie ever released has to tell the story of a nation or peoples past, God knows we don'...

The Raid 3 is most likely not happening ever

The Raid and The Raid 2 are masterpieces. Literal masterpieces. They are some of the best action of any kind you will see ever. Director Gareth Evans should be directing everything. It's a crime he's not involved with some superhe...

New Iron Fist trailer reminds me to watch Luke Cage

I'm really, really behind on my television watching, but if there's something that's going to make me catch up it will be wanting to watch the awesome-looking Iron Fist with a complete understanding of what's going on in the Netflix se...

See Kung Fu Panda 3 early and free

Has the shine worn off the Kung Fu Panda franchise yet? It's a long time between these sequels and I've just gotten less and less enthused about the series, but both 1 and 2 were enjoyable so maybe three will work too. I was ...

First trailer for Kung Fu Panda 3 brings the thunder

I've got quite a fondness for the Kung Fu Panda series. It's a competent cartoon that's as funny as it is endearing. It's also got some really good classic kung fu sensibility, and since that's so rare these days, it's nice to see it execut...

NYC's Old School Kung Fu Fest 2015 has so many ninjas

The folks over at Subway Cinema head up the annual New York Asian Film Festival, my favorite of all the year's festivals, and I'm always excited to see what else they cook up. Last month, we brought news of their efforts to fund the 2015 Ol...

For everyone who was sitting around thinking about how much they want to watch the most-likely-lesser-than-the-original remake of The Raid (pretty much no one) we've got some bad news. The film has been delayed. It was supposed to star...

47 Ronin trailer gives us some sweet Keanu

This newest trailer for 47 Ronin (starring Keanu Reeves, whoa) looks like a big and dumb spectacle, and there's probably nothing wrong with that. I mean, sure 47 Ronin is based off a much better film, and sure it pulls a Last Samurai and g...

UK trailer for 47 Ronin makes it look much more enjoyable

Maybe it was the extended length of the first trailer for 47 Ronin, or maybe it was just my chagrin over the bastardization of the story, but I was not sold at all on it. This UK trailer on the other hand gives me a bit more hope. It ...

See The Grandmaster early and free

While it may have 20 minutes cut from it when it lands in American theaters seeing The Grandmaster on the big screen is definitely something you want to do. That's why we're giving out passes for it. We're cool like that. If you're int...

Trailer: Man of Tai Chi

We had a previous trailer for Man of Tai Chi, but it was all meant for the Asian market and subtitled. Who wants that crap? We want trailers pandering to us English speaking folk with text we can understand, damn it! Well, here it is. The ...

Check out new photos for Wong Kar Wai's The Grandmaster

Trailer: The Grandmaster

Wong Kar-Wai's The Grandmaster has been stuck in production and post-production h-e-double-hockey-sticks for about three years now. While we can hardly say at this point whether or not the movie will be worth the wait, we can at least be e...

The Raid sequel takes place only two hours after original

How much silat can one man do in a day? If you've seen The Raid: Redemption (most needless subtitle ever) than you know that its hero basically fights constantly for at least half of a day. In the end though he fights everyone and they...

Review: Tai Chi Zero

A few things you should probably know about Thi Chi Zero since I'd guess you haven't heard about it before. It's a Hong Kong kung fu film with big sets, plenty of fights and lots wire work. It isn't, however, much like anything you've likel...

New Man With the Iron Fists videos kick so much ass

The Man With the Iron Fists is going to kick way too much ass and bring "da ruckus" as RZA (or Hubert) would say. In anticipation of its release in less than a month, here are a few character trailers showing off its kick ass villains Bras...
