Rating (a 1 – 6 scale): 4.7

The Pang Bothers, who have come up with several lemons these last few years, hit just the right note with The Detective. From the discordant soundtrack (which immediately grabs you and doesn’t let go) to the wonderful performance by Aaron Kwok as a down on his luck detective that finds himself sucked into a complex and deadly mystery, this little gem of a film (part classic gumshoe, part ghost story, part thriller) can’t fail to entertain you.
