If you like the Bond movies, you owe it to yourself to check out "Largo Winch."

Fortunately for the company, Largo turns out to be a formidable knife fighter in the corporate sense; fortunately for this sleek, empty thriller, he turns out to be a formidable knife fighter in the street sense too.

There's so much plot and so many locations in this international finance-steeped thriller that it's one very exhausting but ultimately satisfying rollercoaster.

It won't make anyone forget Bond, of course. But it will do for now.

There are plenty of twists and just as many bad guys speaking in a wide variety of accents. It's handsome, large-scale escapist fare - and has as its costar the formidable, versatile Kristin Scott Thomas.

November 17, 2011

It's a film that flies through its frantic pace with the greatest of ease, delivering a couple of real surprises along with set pieces that pay sincere homage to Ian Fleming's James Bond books

An exhilarating, thrilling and thoroughly suspenseful action thriller.

Eye for Film

German star Tomer Sisley brings a winning level of charm to Largo, rising to the physicality of the role and injecting humour, but never letting it slip into pastiche.

Euro-financed production throws large chunks of change at a corporate espionage saga spanning several continents, yet most of the money seems to have landed in locations, with too little allocated to the script and stunt departments.

Do you sometimes get the feeling that you haven't seen a film before, but you might as well have? All of the ingredients are basic.

The generic plot is redeemed by exciting action sequences, good-looking location photography and a hot sex scene involving a femme fatale named Lea.

It stars Kristin Scott Thomas, in one of those French roles she usually excels at. But the movie is a mess.

About halfway through, the wheeling and dealing becomes so elaborate and the villains so numerous that the only way to enjoy the movie is to let its preposterous story wash over as you sit back and take in the scenery.

Heavy on tedious convolutions and depressingly light on character depth, suspense or political-economic intrigue.

It's impossible to imagine how anything this convoluted could have already earned a sequel, but it has.

There's little room for the viewer to get his or her footing, particularly when the assumed point of identification is the relative nonentity of a hero.
