Watch this if you liked: “The Detective”, “Murderer”

There is little that is frighteningly original about "The Detective 2" but it does retain a lot of the
quietly gripping style of its predecessor and continues to benefit from a very committed performance from Aaron Kwok as the titular private investigator.

The noirish directorial sentiments of Oxide, one-half of the celebrated Pang brothers, get a good run-out with the support of Eddie Cheung Siu Fai as a deranged murder suspect, Liu Kai Chi as the righteous cop buddy and Patrick Tam Yiu Man as his annoying superior. Since the movie is plot-driven, it does add to the seamlessness of the story that these roles seem like they could not be better cast.

However, as mentioned earlier, there is little that is wildly original about the story. There are requisite scenes of cloak-and-dagger - while the detective's logic is often commonplace if not, actually boring. The themes may be recycled but it is rather disappointing that more riveting case-solving content is used. The setting is excellent for stories that would benefit from the locale but "The Detective 2" is intent on delivering a sub-clever twist to a rather familiar story.

"The Detective 2" isn't an award-winner but we'll see more from this franchise if Oxide Pang gets more time in Thailand. Well at least it's not completely unrewarding like that other Aaron Kwok thriller - "Murderer".
