Nice packaging but not much substance
17 September 2000 | by See all my reviews

Very typical of Hong Kong movies, "Torpedoes" provides a superficial package to look "nice", but lacks the substance to really make the movie complete. Quite a number of places just do not add up eg. no MI5 agents showed up in Budapest to stop the bad guy when they knew of his where about. The movie looks "slick","cool" & "entertaining", but it makes MI5 & some audiences look ridiculous!
