Detective Dee and the Mystery of the Phantom Flame

A film by Tsui Hark

In the year AD 690, when the mysterious deaths of a series of loyal senior officials from what appears to be spontaneous combustion threaten to delay the inauguration of Empress Wu Zetian, she summons the infamous Detective Dee back from the prison into which she cast him eight years earlier for speaking against her. But distrust, political maneuvering, and assassination attempts hinder Dee at every turn. An excellent and imaginative martial arts picture!
