Conspirators (2013) Movie Review

9 August 2013 8:49 AM, PDT | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Despite its English language title, “Conspirators” is actually the third film in Oxide Pang’s “The Detective” franchise, following up on the 2007 original and 2011 sequel.

With Pang taking his usual stylised approach, the film treks its way around Southeast Asia, the plot unfolding in Thailand, Malaysia and Guangzhou as Tam tries to get to the bottom of things. The film kicks off where part 2 left off, with Tam heading to Malaysia to try and solve the mystery of his parents’ murder some thirty years back, an unsolved case which inspired him to become a detective. »
