Great combination of story and action...
I didn't know that this was the sequel for "Largo Winch", and if I had known I might have watched "Largo Winch" first. So for the time being I don't know how "The Burma Conspiracy" (aka "Largo Winch 2") is connected to the first movie, nor how much of a continuation it might be.
"The Burma Conspiracy" is driven by a wide-spanning story that takes place in Burma, Thailand, Hong Kong and Switzerland. And there is also a good amount of action the the movie. The movie starts out with a really impressive, and nicely filmed, car chase scene. And, of course, there is a love story here as well, so you might say there is something for everyone here.
Tomer Sisley carried the movie really well, and I think this is actually the first time I am taking notice of him, despite having seen other movies that he was in. And Sharon Stone did a good job in her supportive role opposite Sisley. And it was a treat to have Thai heavyweight actor Nirut Sirichanya in the movie too, as he always bring a level of authority to his movies.
"The Burma Conspiracy" is a movie that grabs you by the throat and take you on an adrenaline-filled roller-coaster ride. I was more than genuinely entertained by the intricate storyline, the action and the acting performances. "The Burma Conspiracy" is well-worth sitting down to watch, and the almost two hours seem to just fly by.
The only thing missing from "The Burma Conspiracy" to give it a higher rating is the lack of contents to support more than a single viewing. While the story is good, then it is, unfortunately, the type of movie that you will watch only once.
