Extremely entertaining
9 October 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Directed by Johnny To. Brilliant, hilarious and nerve wracking.

Everything gets thrown into the plot. Blind detective, betrayed by partner, teams up with a young female cop, a missing teenager, serial killers, a jilted woman, an on-screen birth, thrills and spills.

Hong Kong's Sherlock Holms. Depends on empathy rather than deduction.

As sharp as Zatoichi's blade.

Terrific performances by Andy Lau and Sammi Cheng. Strong supporting cast.

I rarely give a rating of 8/10.

This is one movie I can recommend.
