Plot twists & turns
19 November 2001 | by (Montreal, Canada) – See all my reviews

You may not want to pay to go see this movie, but if it comes on TV it may be worth your time.

First off, the setting of this movie goes from Europe to Thailand to Cambodia (Angkor Wat). It was really neat to see scenes of Bangkok over 40 years ago.

Lots of secret agents involved as well as some unexpected killing & serious plot twists. I was just thinking "hey, that's exactly what I'd do in that situation". In so many films you see someone kill someone then leave that person's gun behind and you say to yourself that they're a real idiot, that you would have picked up the gun and searched the body, etc. This film has a lot of scenes where feel that the actors are acting intelligently.

This movie was originally in German and the English dubbing isn't bad at all.

Check it out!
