Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Detective Dee - Mystery Of The Phantom Flame [DVD] (DVD)
The period and the name 'Dee' suggested that this was my old friend Judge Dee, whose exploits I've read about since I was an adolescent (I'm 73 now), and I wasn't disappointed. Superb film. I suppose the martial arts are inevitable these days, but the special effects, cinematography, 'magic' were spectacular, and the sense of period, ie 8th Century China convincing. Judge Dee's intellect and his intrepid mission to investigate the mysteries at the heart of the phantom flame absolutely gripping.
