Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Tiresomely frenetic crime-comedy-romance."
‑ Neil Young, Hollywood Reporter
"Lau and Cheng have an alternately aggravating and ingratiating chemistry that suggests Nick and Nora Charles as played by Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck."
‑ Keith Uhlich, Time Out New York
"Although it serves up a few laughs and a couple of set-piece scenes that To completists will want to cut out and keep, Blind Detective is a decidedly minor offering."
‑ Lee Marshall, Screen International
"This madcap mystery-romance sustains a light, bouncy tone and a decent hit-to-miss laff ratio even in scenes involving strangulation, dismemberment and cannibalism."
‑ Justin Chang, Variety
"To's ambitious amalgam of comedic trappings and grisly crime analysis is just odd enough to remain of interest."
‑ Jordan Cronk, Slant Magazine
"Despite having acclaimed director Johnnie To at the helm, this mash-up of the romantic comedy, buddy cop and thriller genres is a total mess from beginning to end."
‑ David Baldwin, We Got This Covered
"After initially being put off, though, I eventually adjusted to the film's antic rhythm, enjoying the two leads' go-for-broke enthusiasm and the convoluted plot's nutty digressions."
‑ Mike D'Angelo, AV Club
"It's about as light-hearted and goofy as they come, but also disorganized, chaotic, and lacking much of the cohesive sense of style and vision that normally characterizes a To film."
‑ Barbara Scharres, RogerEbert.com
"A daring if totally misguided hybrid of two very different films that may suffice for the director's fans, though will likely be remembered as a sloppy curio farce above all else."
‑ Shaun Munro, Film School Rejects
