Detective Dee is back after many years absence. I had high expectations to how he will solve the mysteries this time.

The story: As expert in the Investigation bureau, Dee has to protect himself this time from accusations of the Empress. This leads him to a sect with origins from India, using sorcery and illusions to harm the empire and the emperor. The story has a lot of surprises, and there is no boring sequences. Lots of action scenes and plots to discover.

The cast: they all did very solid performance. Refreshing to see Juan Ethan here, after I finished "Legend of Fu Yao". William Feng does a great job as Di Renjie's friend Yuchi and head of the Golden guard. I love actions scenes he is in. Carina Lau is good as always as the empress. Mark Chao and Lin Geng Xin are like Sherlock and Dr Watson; they know each other well, and chemistry is excellent. Sandra Ma is a new face to me, but she does it pretty well as a female assassin.

The cgi/effects: Because the story includes a lot of illusions, I am amazed by the effects done in this movie. It looks great, and had their natural space in the movie. Very well animated

Overall, I enjoyed the 2 hours the movie lasted, and I think I will watch it again to make sure I got all the details in it. Highly recommended if you love fantasy, FX and a bit of ancient myths

The movie starts with Yakumo Kyosuke who wants to investigate Kiharazaka Yudai, a very special photographer.

I think the start is a bit slow, but I was very curious about Kiharazaka Yudai. Why he wants to take pictures the way he does, and why people around him are protecting him.
As the story continues, more secrets are revealed, and at some point, it turns around. I loved being fooled to believe I knew the answer, but I was fooled again.

The plot is fascinating, and if you like thrillers, this is one of the best. Writing more will reveal the story, so it is better to just watch and learn the truth yourself.

I put the rewatch value as low because the surprise is already revealed, so it is not the same watching it the 2nd time

Highly recommended!!!

The story goes straight to the point what the female lead has to do to survive. She meets her love, and together they face a bloody and cruel world, People only want to seperate or kill them.

Cast: Many new faces to me, but overall they did at great job. I could feel anger, compassion, sympathy and sorrow to most of the characters because of their background and life experiences.

Story: I love the contradictions the main couple went through. But also the many obstacles the support roles were facing throughout the drama. I was not bored, and I especially loved they way they animated the stories behind each character.

Disliked: The slow dialogues, taking a lot of breaks to finish a sentence. I am sure if the actors could move normally when there are sad scenes and talk in normal speed, it would be at least 5 episodes less.

Liked: I love the content in the dialogues. The fighting scenes are amazing and incredible to watch. Beautiful OST. Realistic description of Gui Hua City, the city of asassins and their brutal daily life. Cha Lua is straightforward evil leader of the city. Chang An IS THE BEST!! I loved everything about him.

Watch the whole drama, it is absolutely worth your time.
