Back in June I posted the trailer for the latest Andy Lau flick – Detective Dee And The Mystery Of The Phantom Flame. Well the time flew and it’s now available to pick up from Yes Asia in both DVD and Blu-ray formats.
Lau plays Detective Dee (actually Judge Dee), the Chinese equivalent to Sherlock Holmes. He is brought in to solve the mystery behind a string of murders involving spontaneous combustion. A tricky puzzle indeed, especially if he is to find the answer before the coronation of Empress Wu (Carina Lau).
Directed by one of the kings of Hong Kong film, Tsui Hark along with action choreography by the master Sammo Hung, this is one of the stand out films for 2010.
