Billionaire Nerio Winch is found dead, drowned. An obviously suspicious death as Nerio is the founder and majority shareholder of the powerful and sprawling W Group. Who will inherit this financial empire? Officially, Nerio had no family. But he had a secret he kept well-hidden: a son, Largo, adopted nearly thirty years before from a Bosnian orphanage. The only problem is this young heir has just been thrown in prison deep in the Amazon. Accused of drug trafficking, he claims he's innocent. Nerio murdered. Largo in prison. What if these two events were part of a plot to take control of the Winch empire? Written by
A shocking waste of time. Decent plot and well-made film but the company and characters are of no interest. Halfway through the film I realised I genuinely didn't care what would happen to the company or the heir, so what was the point in watching it?
The film is very similar to 'Transporter' in a way except it does not have any characters to actually take an interest in. There's a great deal made about an heir called Largo Winch and yet when you finally meet Largo he's an arrogant kid who has magically obtained fighting skills, fluency in numerous languages and universal knowledge.
A minor gripe; the actor playing Largo just pulls one expression for the entire film... it's beyond irritating.
