Number of Times Seen – 1 (19 Sep 2014)
Brief Synopsis – On a strange night in London, 3 complete strangers make a pact in order to be granted a wish from a Chinese goddess that will change their lives forever.
My Take on it – The concept here is quite good and is scripted extremely well.
Everyone has their problems in life and this movie puts three people in a place where ‘they need to be careful what they wish for because they might actually get it.’
Each of the characters are very different in the scope of their personal issues, but there is always a way to connect people in ways never imagined.
This is yet another great collaboration between Sidney Greenstreet and Peter Lorre and they work so well together it makes me wish that I’d seen more of their movies.
I think I’m now going to actively seek some of them out and hopefully find some true gems out there.
The twists and turns are fun and it’s great how things constantly change around so often.
It’s not a perfect film, but it’s still a very captivating one.
Bottom Line – Very interesting film noir that has numerous twists that make it quite captivating. Great script and it’s once again nice to see Lorre and Greenstreet working together. This movie is lacking slightly which prevents it from being better than it truly could have been
Rating – Globe Worthy
