The Synopsis for The Heir Apparent: Largo Winch (2008) 720p

Billionaire Nerio Winch 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, 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?

The Reviews for The Heir Apparent: Largo Winch (2008) 720p


Really well made but with an average story and some weak acting.Reviewed byBoba_Fett1138Vote: 6/10

This movie is a real mixed big. On the other hand it's one great looking and well directed movie, with a pleasant pace and some good action but on the other it's being a real average one with its story and suffers from some weak acting as well.

It's actually a movie based on a Belgian novel- and comic-book-series. And it's not really hard to see why they wanted to turn it into a movie-series as well. It has a very typical movie style and way of storytelling to it, that reminds you of movie-series such as the Bourne Identity and James Bond ones. It has a thriller type of plot, hot women, plenty of action and hand-to-hand combat and some exotic locations as well. Yet as a movie this one does not really work out quite successfully. Also financially it was a disappointment but that didn't prevent them from making a sequel, with the poetic title "Largo Winch II", in 2011, which was not much of a success either. So it seems that the series is already over before anybody had really heard about it, unless some big Hollywood studio decides to pick it up and turn it into a movie-series, since the potential is all definitely still present in it.

It's a movie in which a secretly adopted son has to proof his legitimacy, in order to take over his murdered father's company, that is worth billions and prevent it from falling in the wrong hands of some shady business people. Doesn't sound like the most interesting perhaps and you're right to think so. It's mostly being a Industrial espionage thriller, with backstabbing characters and ones with double agendas, with some action thrown in it to spice up things. It just isn't really the most exciting concept to begin with and besides, the movie its story offers little new or surprising really. It all has been done before and better as well. It's all quite predictable, also in the way it's progressing.

But the film-makers didn't seemed to be stopped in their ambitions to still create a great movie, despite of its story. It's a real slick looking movie, with a great visual style to it. They also handled the action really well, with some good camera-work and nimble editing. I'm a fan of some good old fashioned hand-to-hand action and this movie has plenty of that. Really, I can't say anything bad about the directing approach of this movie. It also provides the movie with a pleasantly fast pace, which ensures that the movie, despite of its story, won't ever start to bore you.

And the movie also needed a fast pace, since it seemed to be covering lots of ground. It's set in many different countries, at many different places, with many different people. Yet they managed to fit it all into a 100 minutes short movie. It might cause you to loose track at times though. I mean, it's quite hard to understand at times why our main character is suddenly in a different country or how he got there in the first place.

But something that really truly brings this movie down is its acting. Most of the actors really got poorly cast in this and seem to belong on TV or soap operas only really. Kristin Scott Thomas is an exception and Benedict Wong also does a decent enough job but the rest were really struggling to get their lines out convincingly. Perhaps this was also partly due to it that most characters have to speak in many different languages. The movie mostly consists out of French, English and Serbian dialog, while some of the actors themselves aren't even French, English or Serbian. And hearing a French person utter some English words just never really sounds convincing. The lead actor Tomer Sisley was also really struggling with this and only seemed to be in his element during the action sequences.

Not a great movie by any means but still worth giving a go when you have run out of anything else to watch.

Now the French are beating us at action/thrillers--we better start calling ours "Freedom Films"Reviewed bycarbuffVote: 9/10

I put off watching this movie for a long time, but I ran out of things to watch with a certain group of people whose tastes I had to all satisfy, so I decided to this a try. I was thinking that a French action/thriller set in the world of corporate high finance sounds like an oxymoron; however, I was really wrong, and this movie was great.

It's quite intelligent for this kind of movie and is well-filmed in a variety of interesting locales. While obviously working with a way lower budget than a typical American blockbuster, it managed to be feel much more real and satisfying, with the added bonus of no unpleasant aftertaste of guilt for time wasted.

If you watch typical Hollywood thrillers, you really should give this foreign one a try, since, while it is not exactly brain food, it's a good step up from pure Tinseltown junk food.

Only been maybe 4 days since i saw it and i've already forgotten themajority of it...The Heir Apparent won't be the most memorable filmyou've ever seen...but it was a well done enough action film of the"old school" french variety that will play very nicely on TV in yearsto come. Sleek enough to hold your attention and telling a story thatdoesn't insult your intelligence but won't really tax it either--themovie works well enough while its going, but once its over you'lleither have trouble believing what you just saw, or you won't reallycare what you just saw--you'll just wanna see another movie asap.

Requiring a daring man of action to save the day but really just acontinuing series of action sequences barely held together by acontinuing storyline (ironically not unlike district b-13 which whilean awesome movie is much much more of an example of "new school" frenchaction film that's more in vogue right now.) The Heir Apparent issupposed to be more of an old school french action movie--like thiscould've easily been made with jean paul bellmondo in the 70's.

Largo Winch is the adopted heir to the CEO and founder of thisgianormous company--when the ceo is found dead--its up the adopted heirto find out why, who, when, and if possible save the rest of thecompany. (Largo is a guy who loves breaking out of places--you see himas a kid running out the window of his bedroom--he hates being coopedup in one place...naturally a break out of jail sequence is includedhere, but with the nice twist that largo really really doesn't wantanyone to help him with it....he's also apparently fiercely independentwhich just makes you wonder why he's doing what he's doing but nomatter.) Anyways the bulk of the plot is basically Largo beingrecruited by the board of the company to do whatever he can to keep thecompany from being swallowed up by its main competitor. (this requiresbasically getting the majority of stock in the company back from theguy who owns the competitive company, but of course there's so muchmore to that then just going up to the guy and making him hand over theshares of stock) That's really all you need to know---anything else isstuff that comes up throughout the story that you just kinda roll yourshoulders and go with--otherwise you'll have too many questions and toquestion what's happening here is besides the point.

Some of the action scenes are pretty cool...and the lead actor has anappealing what me worry? attitude that matches the tone of the movieperfectly. The reversals and double reversals that happen throughoutthe movie don't really add anything besides obstacles for the maincharacter to hurdle over--but hurdle them he does, and well. KirstenScott Thomas appears but adds nothing except maybe a sense thatsomething significant is supposed to be happening here, but its prettyclear its not. Ummmm the movie was entertaining enough--like it was funto watch, but after an hour or so it gets kind of dull, like you startto wonder what the point is, why is Largo Winch so perfectly willing tobe used by his father's board members when he himself has no interestin running the company at all anyways---there are flashbacks of himtalking to his father that are meant to give depth to largo's characterbut only serve to remind us that we could be watching a much bettermovie if Largo could just somehow get out from his father's company'sshenanigans. Anyways--it was an OK movie--but there were hints that itcould've been something more. As it is its not bad, its actually prettyfun to watch but i'll prob forget i saw it in a day or two.
