Chan Kwai Bun (Lau Ching Wan) has the power to see people's "inner personalities," making him a very capable, if unorthodox and unstable, police detective. He is invited back to active duty by Ho Ka On (Andy On), a cop investigating the disappearance of a fellow officer whose weapon has been used in multiple robberies. Ho and Ko Chi Wai (Lam Ka-tung), the missing cop's partner, go after an Indian suspect. Bun, however, can see both men's inner selves and suspects something else at play.

    Mad Detective is equal parts gonzo inspiration and overwrought indecision. It could be called "The Lunatic From Kowloon." show more

    Director Johnny To's previous flicks are slicker affairs, but there's still plenty here to please the fans. show more
