If you’re a fan of Chinese cinema and like Sherlock Holmes, then Detective Dee and the Mystery of the Phantom Flame should be right up your moviewatching alley. Starring Andy Lau, Bingbing Li, Carina Lau and featuring stunning fight choreography from Hong Kong action star Sammo Hung, Dee is slated to get a limited release September 2nd.

This period epic from genre master Tsui Hark (Once Upon a Time in China) finds Empress (Carina Lau), on the eve of her coronation as China’s most powerful woman, being haunted by a murder mystery – seven men under her command have burst into flames, leaving nothing but ashes and bones. She enlists the services of Dee Renjie (Andy Lau) – a man whose unparalleled wisdom is matched only by his martial arts skills. Dee battles a series of bizarre dangers while trying to unveil the truth that puts an entire dynasty in peril.
 
The film was an official selection at last year’s Toronto Film Festival, Best Visual Effects nominee at this year’s Asian Film Awards and winner of the Hong Kong Film Awards (including Best Director and Best Actress).
