The Burma Conspiracy
Propelled to the head of the W Group after the death of his adoptive father, Largo Winch decides, to everyone's surprise, to sell it, and use the proceeds to create an ambitious humanitarian foundation. But on the very same day, he finds himself accused of crimes against humanity by a mysterious witness. To prove his innocence, Largo will have to retrace the steps of his past life, in the heart of the Burmese jungle..
Optically wonderful, with all the panoramic views of interesting places; a solid, puzzle-like espionage-plot; a charming protagonist.
It looks like the newer Bond movies and is build up like one, too.
Nice thriller that is a little too long but otherwise quite good.
The second Largo Winch film sees Largo wishing to donate much of his wealth to humanitarian projects, alas he becomes embroiled in a scandal relating to the ethnic cleansing of a Burmese village. This globetrotting sequel is an improvement on the first film, delivering a more action-packed adventure and some much needed character development - and love interest - for Largo himself. Manservant Gaultier and new friend Simon add a dash of comedy, making this a much easier, less po-faced prospect.
Lightweight action conspiracy thriller with a few nice touches.
A gripping international conspiracy thriller that keeps the balance between a story that keeps you guessing and big action and fight sequences that never get overly silly. Ad a charismatic lead and a few good supporting actors, and you got a pretty good Bond movie without the old cliches.
The Burma Conspiracy really tries, and wrongly thinks that it has an edgy and hard hitting thriller story to tell but unfortunately those presumptions are unfounded leading me to think that if a film can suffer delusions of grandeur then this one is a prime example. The thing is, it’s not that the plot is that over complicated it just gets so dull at times that at no point does it have your full attention
