Spoof or Homage to Film Noir?
27 March 2018 | by See all my reviews

I could not decide if this was a homage to Hollywood Film Noir of the forties or a spoof or just a mess.

For an excellent review see Sino-Cinema Derek Elley's summary http://sino-cinema.com/2015/12/25/review-the-unbearable-lightness-of-inspector-fan

My comments are only supplementary. The film was billed as a comedy action romance suspense. It did not succeed at any of them. Ruan Jingtian as Inspector Fan Ruyi was not convincing especially when he was supposed to be smoking. I didn't find anything comical particularly not the throwing up scenes at the beginning - one barf would have been enough. The violence was gruesome and gratutious.

The sets and costumes were well done but the main character's lack of convincing performance hindered being drawn into the mish mash story. A cast of unusual warriors: Thunderbolt, Angry Panda, Obese Tiger, Evil Monk and Smiling Ghost did help to break up the monotomy.
