DVD review: Fatal Secret (1988)
A computer disc is stolen and Kim Brown (Camilla Lundén) is asked to arrange a deal between LeWinter (David Carradine), which now has the floppy, and the CIA who want it. But she tricks the two and flees with the money and disc. With the CIA and KGB LeWinter behind she quickly realizes that she is playing a dangerous game. Fatal Secret is written and directed by Mats Helge Olsson and Anders Nilsson. It´s another swedish production that tries to pass itself off as American. The acting isn´t very good but we watch these movies for the action and not for the acting. The camerawork and editing is pretty good. The pacing is pretty good and there´s plenty of gunplay, shootouts and hand to hand fighting and A.R. Hellquist is pretty good as John Mitchell, Kim Brown´s former lover who comes to her aid. There are some gore in the form of squibs. There is some brief T & A in this courtesy of Camilla Lundén.
This review is based upon the swedish region 2 DVD release from JGS AB
Rating: 3½ out of 7. I enjoyed this, it´s a pretty decent action flick with a decent plot and plenty of action.
