Storyline

Billionaire Nerio Winch (Predrag "Miki" Manojlovic) is found dead, drowned. An obviously suspicious death as Nerio is the founder and majority shareholder of the powerful and sprawling "W Group". Who will inherit this financial empire? Officially, Nerio had no family. But he had a secret he kept well-hidden: a son, Largo (Tomer Sisley), adopted nearly thirty years before from a Bosnian orphanage. The only problem is this young heir has just been thrown in prison deep in the Amazon. Accused of drug trafficking, he claims he's innocent. Nerio murdered. Largo in prison. What if these two events were part of a plot to take control of the Winch empire? Written by Happy_Evil_Dude

Just didn't have the resources to pull it off
3 March 2011 | by KineticSeoulSee all my reviews

Now I never read any of the comic about this character so I didn't know what I was in for, no did I ever heard of Largo Winch until this movie came around. But I heard it's a pretty cool superhero flick so I decided to check it out. The thing is, it's a decent B action movie, and also fast paced. But some parts are just skimmed over really quickly without much development. I know the direction is more getting to the core of everything, but there is little to no attachment to any of the characters. They are just mainly there to move the story forward and nothing else for the most part. The movie started off alright but started to lose it's flare after a while, in fact almost a hour of this movie revolves around bunch of people bickering about the company. I don't know if it's because this movie caught me off guard, cause this just wasn't the the type of movie I was expecting and that isn't a positive. This is also a adaptation from a comic book but just didn't have any of the comic book vibe to it. I don't know if the budget for this movie was really low, but from what I heard it's a poor adaptation to the comic and just didn't go in the direction it should have. For a superhero flick or just a comic book adaptation it just seemed like they didn't have the resources to make the adaptation work and make it good. Some even say the adaptation from this comic to a movie if done by Hollywood would have been terrible. I disagree, yeah stuff blowing up constantly gets old after a while but this is one of those movies that needed at least some resources. It also has noticeable plot holes and sequences that make absolutely not sense. This was suppose to be a adventure/thriller but didn't find anything adventurous or thrilling, it's basically below mediocre action movie at most. I am giving this movie a 5.8 because the last 30 minute was sort of entertaining and I liked how almost everything got put together.

5.8/10
