Review: 'Detective Dee and the Mystery of the Phantom Flame'

Given the rave reviews across the board for this, I clambered down to the Landmark Hillcrest eager to see this. Alas, it was one of those movies where the expectations were set too high, and were not met.

There were many parts that were interesting but I would have to say I didn't think it was worth going to a theatre to pay for... more of a DVD rental or streaming maybe.

As for the "action" sequences I found them remarkably tame and nowhere near as impressive as Crouching Tiger or House of Flying Daggers.
