    I just watched Detective Dee 2010 for the first time tonight 6/24/2011. The movie blow me away with it’s incredible style, art and acting. The movie certainly is better than many block busters that I’ve seen in America. I’m looking forward to the prequel and watching Detective Dee in action again. I had no idea this movie even existed. America is a very short cited country and refuse to accept other cultures. I also believe that It would help if some of the major Asian firms were English dubbed which would increase the appeal and circulation Asian Films.
    Note: Detective Dee is a good name and the beginning of a very good Series or Franchise.
    Also Note that this movie reminded me a little bit of “The Duel” that also stared Andy Lau. Although “The Duel” was more of a comedy I really enjoyed the very funky detective that had cool gadgets, cool friends and a hot babe.

  3. I’m looking forward to this, but not exactly digging that poster.
