"The Maltese Falcon" in Asia
4 May 2000 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

Well, certainly not in the same class as the 1941 classic. But the basic plot is the same. Three foreigners, each an old hand in the region, are after a valuable ancient Korean sword. They change allegiances at dizzying speed, but basically cannot avoid each other as they tear around South Korea.

Some nice scenery and plenty of hamming it up. Pleasant, a little offbeat, but certainly no classic !
