Although I’m wasn’t as enamored with director Oxide Pang’s “The Detective” as the majority of folks who saw the flick, I appreciate what the filmmaker was trying to accomplish. After all, it’s not everyday that you encounter a Chinese detective story set in Bangkok that centers around a near-sighted private investigator with serious personal and financial issues. The film was a pretty big success, prompting Oxide and star Aaron Kwok to deliver a sequel, aptly-titled “The Detective 2″. If the trailer’s any indication of things to come, the plot feels a little darker this time around, peppered with a fair amount of light comedy. Trust me — it looks a lot better than it sounds.

But first, a handy synopsis to clear the air:

Mysteries keep revolving around Tam’s life. Not only does this ex-police officer and now a private detective struggle to make sense of the mysterious death of his parents, he is further entangled in a case which escalates out of control into a spree of serial killings, that started when his childhood buddy Fung showed him some crime scene photos.

Todd was raised on a steady diet of Hollywood blockbusters, late-night Cinemax programming, and USA’s “Up All Night,” which may explain why his taste in movies is more than a little questionable. When he isn’t providing news and reviews for Beyond Hollywood, he can be found lounging lazily on his couch, perched in front of his television, or dwelling in places where direct sunlight can be easily avoided. He's happily married, in his 30's, and totally badass. If you'd like to reach Todd, you can follow him on Twitter or send him email/scoops to todd (at)

    I enjoyed the first one very much. I hope this one is just as good.
