Review & Giveaway: Detective Dee & The Mystery of the Phantom Flame [Blu-ray] #Rafflecopter

A period epic from genre master Tsui Hark (Seven Swords), DETECTIVE DEE AND THE MYSTERY OF THE PHANTOM FLAME, is an action-packed, visually breathtaking Sherlock Holmes-style mystery starring some of China's top acting talent: Andy Lau, Bingbing Li, Carina Lau, and Tony Leung Ka-fai. Nominated for Best Special Effects at the 2011 Asian Film Awards and stunningly choreographed by master Sammo Hung, this intricately plotted whodunit is set in an exquisitely realized steampunk version of ancient China.


On the eve of her coronation as Empress (Carina Lau, 2046), China's most powerful woman is haunted by a chilling murder mystery: seven men under her command have burst into flames, leaving behind only black ash and skeletal bones. Recognizing this threat to her power, she turns to the infamous Dee Renjie (Andy Lau, Infernal Affairs, House Of Flying Daggers): a man whose unparalleled wisdom is matched only by his martial arts skills. As he battles a series of bizarre dangers, he unveils a chilling truth that places his life, and the future of an entire dynasty, in peril.

For the longest time I stayed away from movies with subtitles because I was afraid that I would miss out on story.  I guess I thought that I couldn't really watch what was happening and read at the same time.  Then, about a year or so ago I realized that I was missing out on a lot of really great movies.  It's not nearly as hard to follow along as I thought.  During one of our movie marathons, my husband and I watched Detective Dee & The Mystery of the Phantom Flame [Blu-ray].  This movie was totally worth having to read subtitles.  The acting was great and the story was interesting.  Plus, with all that action, it's hard not to be impressed with Detective Dee.
