In their best moments, Hark's action movies have a what-did-I-just-see giddiness, as if their choreography were springing straight from a cartoon id.

By the end, with the running time pushing past the two-hour mark, it's reasonable to ask: Just who are these people?

The film's visual style is at times so dense it simply overwhelms (ditto the plot).

There is nothing wrong with its reach, but its grasp of genre elements is random.

If you're looking for a popcorn movie, producer-director Tsui has crafted an absurdist fantasy that might cure -- or spontaneously combust -- the summertime blues. But even escapist entertainment can have interesting angles.

It is a peculiar conflation of history -- there really was an Empress Wu -- and pure cinematic fantasy.

"Dee" doesn't shoot for the gravitas of Zhang Yimou's "Hero." It doesn't approach that film's magnificent sensory impact, either, or the artistic romanticism that made "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" such a success here.

Detective Dee is the action flick of the year, a two-hour epic that blows the Pirates of the Caribbean to the Bermuda Triangle.

What's tragic about "Detective Dee" is the fact that it rapes a chapter of Chinese history beyond any semblance of reality.

Three decades into his career, Tsui Hark stands as one of the movies' great entertainers, displaying a dancer's sense of rhythm and movement and manipulating physical space with an abandon worthy of Chuck Jones.
