1) A love triangle set in 1952 between a British journalist, an American covert CIA agent, and a young Vietnamese woman against the backdrop of the French Vietnam War.
2) Watch it for Michael Caine as an unengaged reporter narrating the entire plot.
1) The young Vietnamese girl is supposed to be an exotic femme fatale beauty. But the actress who played the crucial role of Phuong doesn’t fit the role.
2) Brendan Fraser is miscast.
Hinh: Sooner or later, Mr. Fowler, one has to take sides, if one is to remain human.
