Former policeman Johnston (Lau), retired from the force after losing his eyesight, becomes a private detective investigating cold cases. During the course of his work, at the scene of a crime, he meets Ho Ka-tung (Cheng), a sporty, all-action policewoman.
Ho, noticing Johnston's intelligence and instinct, hires him for a private job and Johnston accepts.
In Blind Detective Lau, the more realistic actor, does a tremendous job of matching Cheng's habitual boundless energy, even if the film struggles to find a consistent style.
Over-the-top laughs lurk around every corner, although if director To could just have loosened up a little more and let the absurdity take over, Blind Detective could have been an even more enjoyable ride than it undoubtedly is.
