Mad Detective

Description
Detective Bun was recognised as a talented criminal profiler until he sliced off his right ear to offer as a gift at farewell party of his chief. Branded as mad and discharged from the force, he has lived in seclusion with his beloved wife May ever since. Strangely, Bun has the ability to see  inner personality of a person, their subconscious desires, emotions, and mental state. When a missing police gun is linked to several heists and murders, hotshot Inspector Ho calls on the valuable skills of his former mentor Bun to help unlock the identity of the killer. However, Buns unorthodox methods point to a fellow detective and take a schizophrenic turn for the worse.

Fleeting confusion and bizarre literalization aside, Mad Detective is an effective mystery story, with an oddball hero -- like TV's Monk, but far crazier -- and some moments of visceral violence that raise the stakes.

An inventive oddball pic that's diverting and borders on the ridiculous but never becomes uninteresting or completely loses its way.

Every moment in Mad Detective seems engineered for maximum oddity; it almost becomes overwhelming...Yet the movie feels adventuresome, too, a new bridge to Asiaâ(TM)s soulful ghost canon. Itâ(TM)s a metaphysical mystery masquerading as a doodle.

Mad Detective doesn't always make sense, and you cannot always tell what is real and what is imaginary, but viewers will be having too much zonked-out fun to care.

If the insanely inventive and entertaining Mad Detective weren't so weird -- and in Cantonese -- hordes of action geeks would be lining the block to see it.
