Detective Chinatown 2
18 June 2019 | by jackson_roSee all my reviews

Grand scale, liable actors and actresses but way too many plot holes and meaningless lines and scenes makes Detective Chinatown 2 a major letdown. Part of what made the first movie work was the grittiness of Thailand sort of matches the two leads of the film, it really accentuates their personality and helps with the flow of the film. But setting it in New York, and using all the landmarks of the city, it really requires something that befitting in an artistic and storyline sense, and the film fails to deliver in that sense. Character motives and story progression is all over the place in the film, although the film does sort of lines everything up towards the end, the journey was already taken by viewers and it was not pretty. Also would have liked them to explain and elaborate on how Tang Ren got to New York in the first place. It just feels the movie was hastily made, and that the Are York and the entire story was added in last second without too much deliberation. The characters and concept works, as it was shown in the first film, but execution really needs to be improved if the franchise is to continue to move forward.
