Detective Dee and the Mystery of the Phantom Flame is basically a murder mystery with wuxia trappings, and features the classic character of Di Renjie, a real-life Tang Dynasty official whose fictionalized adventures make him something of a Chinese Sherlock Holmes. Played here by Andy Lau, Detective Dee is a smart investigator whose righteousness and martial arts ability are tested when he's asked to investigate some deaths by spontaneous combustion. The two mysterious murders are supposedly related to some sacred religious amulets, which were moved by the victims not long before they suddenly burst into flames. The amulets are located in an outrageously gigantic Buddha statue built to commemorate the ascension of Empress Wu (Carina Lau), who will become the first female ruler of China. Theoretically, the deaths of these amulet movers could signal divine disapproval of the Empress via instant flame-on. Or the murders could be the doing of people pissed at the Empress, as the victims were her loyal supporters.
