Audience Reviews for C+ jing taam (The Detective)

abit hard to follow (normally common w Thailand movies i find) and graded way way to dark for my taste but still worth a watch...just might take a few to connect all the dots, names, and plot summaries.


Great noir murder mystery. Very tight - from the directing to the acting to the cinematography... even the story is wrapped up nicely. The pacing was nice and it held my interest start to finish. My only complaint might be that it was a bit too long, but that would be nitpicking.

This is truly a great flick... not much else to say.

Well, since the plot is empty - It's about a private detective who starts investigating a case where a man thinks a woman is trying to kill him... his investigation turns up a series of corpses and scoldings from local police... his only clue is a single burned photograph...

Max A.

It was suspenseful and addictive, however the movie fell short at the end. The resolution just wasn't enough, and through out the whole movie I kept on thinking that there must be more than meets the eye, but unfortunately I expected too much. All in all the movie was entertaining, had many possibilities, but did not deliver.
