Ringo Lam China, 2016

HKFanatic's rating of the film Sky on Fire

As with Spielberg or Eastwood, you know that a late era Ringo Lam movie isn't likely to match the lofty status of the films he produced in his younger, hungrier years - but there's perhaps an even greater pleasure in watching a seasoned master at work. Lam's meticulous framing, practical stuntwork, and biting social commentary are on display here, and prove why he's still a welcome voice in global action cinema.
