同謀 (Conspirators) (Blu-ray release 2013-7-5) is the sequel to the Hong Kong movies The Detective (2007) and The Detective 2 (2011).  In the previous movies the protagonist tried to find out who is responsible for his parents’ death without much progress.  In this movie the plot is finally centered around it.  While there are certain good attributes, like the atmosphere, the addition of CHEUNG Ka-Fai as another detective, and an action scene involving a train, the overall movie is only average, especially when compared with the 2007 movie, which was an original and very interesting mix of two movie genres.  Without spiritual help, the detective story in this movie is, unfortunately, bland.
