Do not be evil





As part of the popular detective movie series, it was definitely one to
remember. Yet the reviews ran the gamut from contempt to qualified
rapture. Some thought highly of the intention and the context while
others considered it vulgar and awkward.


The plot setup was barely a satisfactory. This film served as great
entertainment with its colorful cast and numerous plot twists. On one
hand, the film integrated popular elements, for example the bromance and
fleeting moments of silly fun without any traces. On the other hand,
comic plots are much more than the reasoning ones. In addition, many of
scenes in the movie designed to make laughter seemed to be vulgar, which
may be the common fault of the commercial films appearing at the New


The one actor that gave this reviewer pause was Liu Haoran as Qin Feng.
He has historically been typecast as the boy next door, so it was a
shock to watch him streaking on the New York Boulevard. It turned to be
a good decision as Liu portrayed the genius detective role brilliantly.


As for the background music, the director has selected some classical
and popular Chinese pop music, such as Pink Memories which exaggerated the
plot and resonated with the audience.


It is worth mentioning that the depiction of humanity and law, good and
evil in the movie add a new dimension on critical thinking. It is a
simple but complex question to answer. A doctor killed several people to
cultivate elixir in order to save more people. Absolutely, no one has
the right to deprive the life of others. And the doctor should be
sentenced by the law. However, perspective shifted, if one of the party
is doomed to pay the cost of life, is it a doctor who have a good
medical skill to save more people? Or an ordinary person? There is no
moral answer to the Trolley Problem.


One of the episodes was that Song Yi disguised himself as the doctor to
kill his enemies to avoid legal sanction. Many people highly appreciate
the fact that the detective who has mastered the evidence but released
Song Yi, considering it a combination of law and humanity and a social
lubricant. I’m afraid that I can not agree with this kind of point.
Talio(demanding life for a life) is a serious breach of the rule of
law. No man can take humanity as an excuse to deprive of the life of
others. When law is damaged, the community as a whole suffers; and when
it is destroyed, societies falter and collapse. The perception warp,
psychological barriers wear down, everyone will live in the panic
created by uncertainty. At the very least, every citizen has the right
and the obligation as well to report the facts of the crime. Under the
premise of our own security, a small step that we have taken is a big
step in the promotion of justice.


Ending with some words said by Friedrich Nietzsche, the film impressed
me a lot. He who fights with monsters should look to it that he himself
does not become a monster. And if you gaze long into an abyss, the abyss
also gazes into you. Contradictions and opposites depend on each other,
connect with each other and penetrate each other. Under certain
circumstances, each side turns to the other side. Such examples are not
uncommon in real life. People from poor backgrounds tend to be more
extreme in order to avoid falling back into poverty; in order to achieve
substantive justice, people abandon procedural justice. The beginning of
all these phenomena stem from the pursuit of the “correct reslt”. No
matter what we may encounter, we should stick to the bottom line of
justice. Next time you face the abyss, do not gaze at it, but turn your
head and feel the warmth of the sun. Let yourself be a little sun, so
that all the people around you will feel warm and bright.


Commercially it was a triumph; philosophically it was thought-provoking.
Despite the minor shortcomings, Detective Chinatown is exciting,
creative, and meaningful——and well worth a few hours of your time.
