This little film is directed by Clive Donner who gave us SECRET PLACES several years earlier. This latest was far more interesting than the movie I am talking about right now: SINISTER MAN. A classic and boring story about an investigation around a corpse found in river Thames. Asian people are accused because the dead man was killed by a karate or judo expert... This Edgard Wallace Mystery tale is unusually flat and tepid for my taste. I am not used about that, if I compare to the other films of this series. But it's a rare item, directed by a known film maker.
Talkative, it lacks some suspense and action sequences, or more interesting characters.
But it's watchable. That's all.
