Tiresomely frenetic crime-comedy-romance.

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.

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.

Justin Chang

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.

Lau and Cheng have an alternately aggravating and ingratiating chemistry that suggests Nick and Nora Charles as played by Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck.

We Got This Covered

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.

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.

To's ambitious amalgam of comedic trappings and grisly crime analysis is just odd enough to remain of interest.

Film School Rejects

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.
