Donnie Yen stomps his way back on to the big screen with Kung Fu Jungle, which is being brought out theatrically by Well Go USA in select American cities under the title Kung Fu Killer. For fans of Yen's work, this is most definitely a release worth heading to the local multiplex to check out.

Movie review: The Moon Warriors

This entry in the venerable Sammo Hung's filmography feels a bit like it is going through the motions, holding no real surprises to those who are well versed in the genre. But the star power shines through enough that at least you won't be bored during the proceedings.

Movie review: The Bullet Vanishes

This is a detective thriller that should provide a good time to potential audience members, even though this is not the most original material ever produced. This is a film that clearly shows its' influences from the Sherlock Holmes movies and distilling them through a bit of CSI glossy crime-busting.
