Ex-private dancer Beth aspires to be a Las Vegas cocktail waitress, when she falls in with Dink, a sports gambler. Sparks fly as she proves to be something of a gambling prodigy--much to the ire of Dink's wife, Tulip.
Two ex-government agents turned rival industrial spies have to be at the top of their game when one of their companies prepares to launch a major product. However, they distract each other in more ways than one.
Taking that somewhat bizarre premise and running with it, the intrepid heroes set out to solve Goethe's increasingly complex and dangerous puzzles while holding the bad guy's "evil" henchman and his sidekick at bay.
The things that do work: the scenery is gorgeous and the bad guy's henchman is by turns slimy and menacing. Some of the chase scenes are so preposterous as to be quite thrilling. However the plot is clunky and the leading man swallows his words. I am not a native German speaker, so with no subtitles I had to work really hard to understand what he was saying.
All things considered, the film is quite entertaining, if you liked Relic Hunter you will like this, but don't go looking for any deeper meaning as it's very much a join the dots plot with some set pieces thrown in. Average and inoffensive.
