Movie Reviews: Legend of the Demon Cat (Cmovie, 2017) and Detective Chinatown 2 (Cmovie, 2018)

I visit the China Film Insider website ever so often to read about the latest movies and last month had read an article about how currently the most popular movies in China are those with “buddy love” storylines. I’d been noticing lately that a lot of the movies and series I have started to prefer as well have had a strong bromance and could see why they would do well.

Good examples of the bromance element can be found in Legend of the Demon Cat and Detective Chinatown 2. Because both movies are basically buddy cop murder mysteries and had a lot of common elements, despite taking place in different time periods and being different genres (historical drama versus modern comedy), I decided to review them together.

      If you are looking for something newer, Miracles of the Namiya General Store is good. (I haven’t had a chance to write a review yet for that one, but now that it’s on Viki, was going to add.) Not as new, but still good: Swordsman (on Netflix), Journey to the West: The Demon Strikes Back (Amazon for rent), Black and White: Dawn of Justice (Amazon Prime) and I was going to finally watch Detective Dee: Rise of the Sea Dragon.

    Legend of the Demon Cat has a touching tragic story diminished by too much visual effects.
