Storyline

Madame Kim Soo is a respected benefactor to social causes in Thailand, but she enjoys viewing Muay-Thai matches with a handsome male escort. Jo Walker and his friend Tom Rowland notice her at ring side, because of her haughty demeanor and beauty. Later, as they search for an American girl who disappeared, possibly another victim of a prostitution-ring, they will visit her at her entertainment club for rich patrons only. The club, situated in a secretive "island of 1,000 lotus flowers", offers foreign sex tourists all kinds of pleasure they may wish for. To the peril of his life, Joe Walker goes alone to meet Kim Soo, after identifying her as the leader of an army of thugs with a tattoo with three snakes. Will Captain Tom Rowland and the Thai paratroopers arrive in time to save Joe Walker from death in the island of lost girls? Written by Artemis-9

Lesser entry in the "Kommissar X" series
27 July 2010 | by gridoon2021See all my reviews

This is the 5th "Kommissar X" film that I have managed to track down and watch so far; only 2 more to go! As usual, it benefits from the fun teaming of the suave Tony Kendall with the stoic Brad Harris, it has some good stunts and flavorful exotic locations (this time, Thailand). But it suffers from plodding pacing (the kidnapping story doesn't have the drive it should, and very little of the action actually takes place on the title island), as well as the lack of memorable secondary characters (with the possible exception of the brave but ill-fated Petra, a reformed guardian). The first film of the series ("Kiss Kiss, Kill Kill") remains the best. ** out of 4.
