A Hong Kong war movie set in a Japanese POW camp
12 February 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This is a Hong Kong war movie. It is set in World War II in a Japanese POW camp. What I found interesting about this movie is that it gives us a glimpse of World War II from the Chinese point of view. What we forget is that the Chinese were under Japanese rule for a lot longer that anybody else, and even more we seem to focus on the war in Europe (or the Pacific) and forget about Asia. The most stupid thing I have heard said is that the British don't care about Australia because they didn't help us against the Japanese. The reason that they did not help us is because they had problems of their own.

This movie is about a man who escapes from the camp to get married only to discover that his fiancée is a spy and that he has been dragged into the affair. Now he must return to the camp to find an agent name Fortune who has the code to a bank account which contains 50 million dollars. The Japanese know of this and also want the money.

The Fortune Code is a simple spy movie with a very James Bond type opening, that is a casino scene. This opening has a Hong Kong flavour to it though with their kung-fu fighting that erupts in the casino. It also has the typical Hong Kong humour, such as the man holding a gang boss up with a water pistol. It is a good little movie that is quite enjoyable. There is little depth to it, but there is not meant to be. Rather it is meant for entertainment. There is also a little twist to who Fortune is, but I will not reveal this: watch the movie and find out for yourself.
