Not bad!
22 May 2019 | by RodrigAndrisanSee all my reviews

Perhaps Mr. Spielberg found his inspiration for Indiana Jones not only in "That Man from Rio" (1964), but also in this "The Corrupt Ones" (1967). Elke Sommer and Nancy Kwan are the most important assets of the film. Neither Robert Stack, Werner Peters and Christian Marquand, they are not bad at all, on the contrary. The film has rhythm, is well done, in all respects. The most exciting, original and ingenious scene is when Stack is tied up with a rope, attached to a motor boat and dragged through the sea, to be made to talk. I'm a big fan of Elke Sommer too (especially due to "Deadlier Than the Male" made in the same year 1967) but here, Nancy Kwan is the sweetest, sexy, cool, etc.
