Critic Reviews for Blind Detective
To's ambitious amalgam of comedic trappings and grisly crime analysis is just odd enough to remain of interest.
Tiresomely frenetic crime-comedy-romance.
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.
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.
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.
Lau and Cheng have an alternately aggravating and ingratiating chemistry that suggests Nick and Nora Charles as played by Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck.May 23, 2013 | Full Review…
Audience Reviews for Blind Detective
Jan 26, 2014<i>Blind Detective</i>, from Johnnie To, meshes together two genres that seem as if they aren't made for each other.<p>With a story over 2 hours which displays a hybrid of a romantic comedy and a crime thriller, <i>Blind Detective</i> is quite the viewing. On one hand, it's hard to take seriously, while on the other hand, it's meant to be taken seriously.</p><p>The over the top scenes and the playful acting of the romantic comedy somehow manages to share screen time with the investigative crime scenes. There really isn't much in the way of action, but the concept of the story is intriguing enough to hold attention.</p><p>Andy Lau and Sammi Cheng do have solid chemistry together, although the overacting is a bit of an annoyance. The rest of the cast falls into the shadow of the two leads.</p><p><i>Blind Detective</i> isn't a unique masterpiece; however, it is watchable for what it is.</p>JY S Super Reviewer
