Passage from Hong Kong
10 November 2013 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

Directed by Ross Lederman, who worked for Warner and Columbia pictures, this little film provides us good entertainment. A mix up of comedy, espionage and romance movie. Nothing exceptional here, the exotic atmosphere is of course not been made in natural setting but in Warner studios.

This is a rather rare film, aired on late TNT and never been shown since, at least as far as I know.

I have not really much to say about it. It is not especially my cup of tea. But I took it because of the opportunity to purchase such a rare item. During WW2, you found many of those features, with fifth column agents and other foreign evil characters, essentially German or Japanese.
