    ★★★★

    I watched this a bit earlier and am still processing how I feel about it. It was dreamlike, mesmerizing and enchanting, but also rather cold.

Eddie Murphy's comic quality doesn't quite track as a detective. Overall, the story is clunky and the romance with the vaguely ethnic love love interest is poorly…
