    Withnail & I

    ★★★★

    This was an incredibly fun time. Richard Grant and Paul McGann played off each other effortlessly and had a charming presence in their own rights. Underneath all of its ridiculous humour was something quite heartfelt at times. It captured two lives carried away by a seemingly inescapable chaotic energy which made anything possible, and nothing worth dwelling on for long.

    What a perfect Saturday night film! 'Royal Warriors' was filled with high-energy martial arts action. The big action set pieces all made incredible use of their varied environments to bring out something unique and exciting in each. Even the familiar fight setting of a night club found a distinct identity here.

    The trio with Michelle Yeoh at the heart of them provided very likeable, in their own ways, although the film failed to build the emotional weight it was clearly trying to find through a couple of the narrative decisions.
