Young Detective Dee: Rise of The Sea Dragon 狄仁傑之神都龍王

Hmm.....What else can we expect from Film Director Tsui Hark for his previous numerous failure in trying to make his Chinese epic films a come back since his peaks in the 90's. The answer is still without much expectation, there will not be any disappointment so it goes with his latest so called first ever underwater Chinese 3d film <Young Detective Dee: Rise of the Sea Dragon> in which the underwater scenes are to the minimal despite seeing the rise of the sea dragon mainly above water. This prequel of Tsui Hark's Detective Dee  has been replaced by Taiwanese sweetheart Mark Chao Yu-Ting who gave a much more approachable and casual acting than Andy Lau who portrayed the intelligent Detective Dee in disguise. For Lau's fan, it hurts but boy, the truth is always cruel and so be ready to accept what it is. As for the story goes, Director Tsui Hark is getting much greedier when he gets a bigger budget for his Kung Fu action pack. This time around, he had put in a little here and there from the <Pirates of the Caribbean> + <Harry Portter> + <Percy Jackson>. Is there anything we have not seen? Fans of Angelababy may get too carried away by her beauty at all stages, but pla....lease, all she can put up with is a one directional dull facial expression. It seems that she wasn't allow to act, but hold on a minute, can she really do it? Her previous films already showed not much acting skills needed from the role that she played. All and all, this action packed film suspense indeed is full of hollows especially when it goes without the CG effect.

Rating : 2.5/5
