Results tagged “Hong Kong” from Reviews of Movies We Haven't Seen Yet
Acclaimed Hong Kong director Johnnie To -- who makes movies so frequently that he makes the busiest Hollywood directors look like lazy bums -- brings us Mad Detective, about an investigator who just happens to be able to read minds. That sure would come in handy, now, wouldn't it? Except, maybe there are things in those deranged minds that he doesn't want to know, and maybe, just maybe, knowing these things might lead us to the "Mad" of the movie's title. The trailer offers close-ups of guns, shattering mirrors, bloody photo IDs, pictures of strange werewolve-ish creatures, someone putting on a (hopefully) prosthetic ear, our protagonist pointing his finger and shooting people with it, same man being buried alive, red powder on scattered sheets of paper (money?), a group of people all whistling the same tune as they walk down the street, an ominously hung pig carcass, more guns, more shooting, more mirrors, chases, and bright lights shining in people's faces. If those images don't scream "Asian cinema" and "action movie," nothing does.
