Lee Strasberg is NOT in the Picture
11 January 2019 | by TheFearmakersSee all my reviews

A boring film, for one. More dialogue than action, and it all seems very written... and acted.

And why it was even sought out, purchased ala import and viewed in the first place is... that there's a listing of Lee Strasberg, the famous "father of American Method Acting" and Hyman Roth in The Godfather Part 2, as a character in CHINA VENTURE...

But Lee is not in the opening credits, and not in the film... not one bit, not for one second is Lee Strasberg in CHINA VENTURE... at all...

"I didn't ask, click... When someone shot Moe Green... click... in the eye... click... Because it was just.... BIZNESS!"
