Chinese movie industry has always been great contributor to the world of cinema. They have introduced legends such as Jackie Chan, Bruce Lee and many more. There have been Chinese movies that went on to be household go-to entertainers for cinema viewers across the globe. The box office appeal of Chinese movies in all continents is formidable. Like any other year, Chinese filmmakers have made several quality movies in 2018. And I try to bring the best of those, the ones I feel will entertain you. So, here goes the list of best Chinese movies of 2018.
15. Detective Dee: The Four Heavenly Kings (2018)
‘Detective Dee: The Four Heavenly Kings’ is quite different from the other two entries about the modest, intellectual and clever Tang Dynasty investigator. While the first movie relies on its mysterious atmosphere and investigative techniques and the second film explores the detective’s early career, the third movie is set between the two and is best described as an engaging flick with supernatural elements. This is a very entertaining fantasy movie with dynamic martial arts elements and colorful costumes and settings but it doesn’t have much depth, doesn’t feature a surprising plot and doesn’t rely on investigative techniques. Some people might, therefore, consider this the weakest entry in the franchise thus far. Despite all that, the film is a thoroughly entertaining experience.

14. Big Brother (2018)
‘Big Brother’ is a cliche high school rom-com movie with some acceptable action scenes thrown into the mix and most importantly it starring the grandmaster of Wing Chun Donnie Yen as the bad-ass teacher of a class full of mischievous teenagers. This movie is different than the average crime action Donnie usually does, besides the ‘Ip Man’ series. But I’m not gonna go out and say this is a breath of fresh air because it is not and the movie knows that too. This is where the movie succeeds. It knows what it wants and what’s wanted from it, which it delivers with relative ease. Watch it if you don’t mind being entertained with some familiar stuff.
