The Burma Conspiracy (15)

The Independent Culture

This thriller, with its own demented logic and some suitably hammy characters, is based on a Belgian comic-book. Tomer Sisley plays daredevil billionaire Largo Winch, who decides to strip the family business of its assets and give the profits to charity. This irritates quite a few shadowy figures, so he's fitted up by Sharon Stone's international prosecutor for a massacre in the Burmese jungle three years before. So the one-note hunk seeks to clear his name and reunite with his pretty, earnest, former girlfriend (Napakpapha Nakprasitte). An erratic, convoluted and rather humourless film, which really needs a more charismatic lead.
