    1. Detective Dee is intentionally made for Mandarin. Just like “Legend of the Fist: The Return of Chen Zhen”. Even all the film festival prints of “Detective Dee” were in Mandarin.

  1. I’ve got the HK blu and watch it with the Cantonese soundtrack!

    Makes more sense to watch it with the Mandarin soundtrack I know but I’ve gotten so used to watching films in Cantonese these last 20 years that if the option is there that’s what I’ll do

    1. Well, I speak the language myself and felt the Cantonese dubbing felt kinda odd. Even if it does feature the voices of Andy Lau and Carina Lau. In fact, I was checking out the Cantonese dub of “The Lost Bladesman” today and the dubbing felt unnatural even with Donnie Yen being the only actor in the entire film speaking with his natural voice.

      In unrelated news, I finally watched “Men Suddenly in Love”. My verdict: I wish I never watched it. It was awful!

  2. I wonder if some of the DC dissonance stems from the fact that many of their other characters are ill-suited to follow Batman down the Dark Knight path. It works well with martial arts and batarangs, maybe not so much with green space rings, Kryptonite and magic lassoes. Marvel heroes have always been a bit more down to Earth and fallible, with relatable human problems — maybe that’s part of the reason they make for more cohesive films.
