This is an Elke Sommer movie. What more do you need to know?
28 March 2006 | by See all my reviews

I guess that "Die Holle von Macao" (called "The Corrupt Ones" in the US) is the sort of movie that you can only find in Movie Madness here in Portland. Cliff Wilder (Robert Stack) is an American spy in Hong Kong who gets hold of an ancient medallion and finds himself the target of various and sundry groups. His only escape is gorgeous Lilly Mancini (Elke Sommer). Meanwhile...

Oh come on folks. THIS IS AN ELKE SOMMER MOVIE!!!!!!!!! You don't watch this sort of movie to have a life-changing experience; you watch it to see her, uh, features. Some people may claim that this movie's just trying to be a James Bond movie. SO WHAT?!!!!!!! It's Elke Sommer, people! Who cares about a decrepit old right-winger like Robert Stack dodging bullets when you've got her hot features on the screen? I know. You say that my infatuation with her is inane, immature, pathetic, and non-respectable, given that she mostly starred in skin flicks in the '60s and hasn't done much since then. Well too bad. I've always found her hotter than the likes of Julia Roberts. In fact, that's why I gave this movie 5/10 stars: the plot is pretty routine, but her presence makes it worthwhile. If I was going to make a movie, I'd do everything possible to try and get her a role, even if it was the same kind of role with which she's always been associated. Hubba hubba...
