Spygames Indonesian style.
13 November 2007 | by haildevilmanSee all my reviews

Great foundation. The execution? Toss-up.

The Nothster plays an ex CIA agent with a recurring romantic nightmare.

The agency wants him back, but he keeps running away so...they force him back to Jakarta.

Jakarta was mostly used for scenery and atmosphere here. Any city would have given a similar result with this plot.

Noth has a girl in his past that he thinks has been nixed. Has she? We head for 'nesia to see. Chase scenes commence. And of course he has an old buddy there. For words from said buddy? "Make it Johnny Walker Black...on me." Hey, he just happened to be in that bar.

The acting wasn't bad really. The cast did their best and created some pretty tense moments.

The chase into the XXX theater was funny. ("Look at the size of that...PIPE.") And the Indonesian puppet shows lent a bit of flair as well. Even if it had little to do with the story.

For fans of Asian based actioners only.
