A job offer at the right time
25 May 2015 | by (Hamburg, Germany) – See all my reviews

Private investigator Nelson Ryan (Heinz Drache) comes home one night and discovers a lady's corpse in his living room. Since he finds that difficult to explain to the police, he just takes a job offer in Hong Kong and runs. Not a shining example for a hero, but things like that happen. Along with his assistant Bob Tooly (Ralf Wolter), Ryan tries to find out more about a mysterious man with a mask, the evil boss of a gang of drug smugglers. Also a very rich family will pay him to find out more about their son's demise. And thus the plot thickens...

One of several thrillers produced by Wolf Hartwig (with Erwin Dietrich) and filmed at Hong Kong, but probably the weakest and cheapest among them. The cast lacks co-stars like Brad Harris and Horst Frank this time. Director Köhler, who debuted with this movie, clearly is no Jürgen Roland, and the script is too straight and simple for a whodunit, I wonder why the masked villain bothered to wear a mask at all. The little Kungfu fight on top of a hill is staged so poorly that they must have hired the cheapest stunt men they could find, Hong Kong's action choreographers would cringe if they ever see that. However, filmed in color and widescreen, it is watchable if you don't expect too much.
