The Burma Conspiracy (Largo Winch (Tome 2)) Reviews
better than the first one
(2011) The Burma Conspiracy: Largo Winch II
(In French with English subtitles)
As an action movie it sucks because throughout the entire film, there's like three action sequences- one, in the beginning which involves a car chase, awfully photographed and acted, the second one, was a fight scene that's obviously inspired by the Jason Bourne movies probably the best thing through this entire film without it being any better than what I've seen before, and finally sometime near the end, when Winch was jumping out of a plane via James Bond, but looks much more fake. The plot centers on many underhanded dealings and double crosses, so many in fact, that I didn't want to see it anymore, motivating me to use a fast forward button while playing and at the same time and totally ignoring much of it's English subtitle dialogue. Yes, it's that excruciating, and without those possible options about how I can view this, I would have given this film a much lower rating. Cut the preliminaries, how's the action sequences going to be like since the plot is extremely boring and very routine.
2 out of 4 stars
With that being said, we get more of Largo and his back-story. While I'm not familiar with the source material (haven't read anything, only watched the first movie), it seems like there is a rich story behind the character. I'm not sure if there will be another installment into the series (could go even further back I guess), but I do know that Largo made an impression on me overall. Good action-thriller that delivers what it needs to
maybe part 2 ain't as first one but its there, so 3 stars
