DETECTIVE CHINATOWN is a Chinese comedy crime drama about two men in Bangkok's Chinatown who have to turn detective in order to prove their innocence when one of them is accused of murder.

Violence

Strong violence includes a large spurt of blood when a man is shot in the shoulder, and a bloody scene where a man is hit several times over the head with a heavy object. There is also a scene in which a man jumps out of a window, is hit by a car, and lies dead in a large pool of blood. Several other scenes feature moderate action violence with a comic tone.

Sex

One brief strong sex scene as a couple are shown with a man thrusting between a woman's legs, with no nudity.

Further issues include references to suicide and several verbal references to rape and the suggestion that one of the suspects may have been sexually abusing a teenage girl. Mild bad language includes the terms 'shit', 'son of a bitch' and 'bastard'.
