An image from Detective Chinatown 2

Detective Chinatown 2 is a detective film set in bustling New York. The main characters Tang Ren (Wang Baoqiang) and Qin Feng (Liu Haoran) are back to investigate the serial killer who killed a tycoon’s grandson and several ordinary people. They cooperate with other famous detectives who are the top members of a professional detective game. Detectives from all over the world show their abilities and figure out the serial killer case together.

Unlike other serial killer or detective genre films, Detective Chinatown 2 does not spend a lot of time scaring people but focuses on the crime case itself, so you can pay attention to all the clues and figure out the case alongside the protagonists. It is also a successful comedy as there are many jokes about the difference between American and Chinese culture which both western people and Chinese can understand. Although the film is about crime, the whole atmosphere is still delightful and relaxing so is a great watch for for students who are stressed out whilst revising exams. Detective Chinatown 2 is a fantastic film that promotes traditional and religious Chinese culture and is a must see. Many people may not have seen the first one, but do not worry about it as these two films have completely two different crime cases and audiences can understand the plot without watching the previous one.
