We took all of the movies directed by Stephen Chow and looked at his Rotten Tomato Critic, Rotten Tomato User, Metacritic, Metacritic User, IMDB, and Letterboxd scores, ranking them against one another to see which movies came out on top. The movies are ranked in our list below based on which movies have the highest overall score between all 6 review sites in comparison with all of the other movies by the same director.

The full ranking chart is also included below the countdown on the bottom of the page. We will update the article if/when a new movie by Stephen Chow is released.
