This one slipped under the radar as a solid action/suspense movie, yet there appears to be no distribution here in the States. A worthy DVD though and my customers have been asking for it daily.

The story follows an unwilling yet physically and mentally adept heir to a multi-billion dollar corporate empire as he trots the globe, first for himself then later throughout the film to find who murdered his father and is conspiring to take over the Group. The camera work is great as they went all over the world to film and used some beautiful aerial angles with each switch. The story is told out of sequence over five different times in our main character's life, but I enjoyed how they played out, especially with the final two plot twists. There are a couple scenes where you have to suspend some reality (James Bond-ish kind of events) but they kept it real otherwise.

The picture quality is good, but it NEEDS a Blu treatment as this could be an amazing transfer. The sound is solid, with both English and French mixed tracks, and a reversible cover that is either French or English text. The five interview supplements all last less than a few minutes but are French only with no subtitles. For those that might be concerned, almost half of the movie is in English at varying times, but the scenery, stunts and pacing can keep the attention span if the remaining subtitles bother you that much.

Movie lovers know that French action movies ain't that bad at all (Nikita, Leon, and many more support that) . This movie is not exception.
I just can't understand how come French producers don't make more efforts to put their movies in more countries. Hence why this movie never made it to my collection before.
I missed Spanish subtitles, since it is my mother language, and extras (this DVD has none), but it does have a nice packaging that makes it look like collectible.
If you don't need more languages besides English or French, you can definitely buy this movie and you won't regret it.
I hope you find my review helpful.

My only real standard for a movie is that it be entertaining without resorting to shock value or cheap tricks, such as lots of explosions (think Transformers), in order to be entertaining. This movie was great because it was very entertaining and didn't resort to using either of the two. It had car chases, fight scenes, beautiful women, beautiful skylines, beautiful geography, a good sound-track, and some surprises thrown in. All very well done. And all of it was somewhat believable - nothing ridiculously unbelievable like is often seen in a Tom Cruise movie or a Will Smith movie. Actually, for some reason this reminded me a little of a James Bond movie, except this movie was actually good. And it was 100x better than the Marvel comics crap that seems to be all the rage nowadays. I gotta start watching more foreign (non-American) movies...that is where the good stuff is nowadays. If you like well-done action/thriller movies, I recommend this 100%.

I have no idea what the first reviewer's problem is and I don't care. I am not going to bore you to death about what this movie is about, read the synopsis. The question is this, is this movie worth watching and is it well written? The answer is, hell yes!!The opening scene is based on a the real life death of a famous billionaire who was on his yacht and mysterioulsly fell off and found drowned--How they explain their version of the death is brilliant and is a great way to open the movie. As for the full script/story, it is an excellent story based on real current events and for me that makes for a compelling movie.

I'd never heard of this film, "The Heir Apparent - Largo Winch" - and if not for chance would never have watched it. Which would have been my loss. This is a solid, better than solid, adventure film with almost non-stop action, great scenery, fascinating characters, a twisty, thinking man's plot and heart. This French action flick is a great action movie that you could watch at least a couple of times without getting bored. It's a character study of the prickly relationship between a very rich man and boy he adopts as his heir, a murder mystery, a story of corporate intrigue, and while it goes all over the world, it's set primarily in Hong Kong and it's the best tourist promotion for that city I've ever seen. Hong Kong literally dazzles with its jewel-like beauty. And that heart I mentioned. There are real people and real emotions and real pain. They're very good actors. And keep an eye on the cutie who plays a key role throughout the film. She is a heart breaker. If you have a chance to see this, or buy this, do it. It's worth it.

I don't like movies with subtitles. They usually distract and take away from a movie. The Heir Apparent has subtitles, but I really didn't notice.

The scenery was fantastic, the acting was pretty good, Mélanie Thierry is absolutely gorgeous and the script was great for an action movie. How often do you have the 'bad' guy say, "I'm the bad guy in this book."

Read the other reviews for a plot synopsis, but the plot twists were good and if you can suspend your belief in how long it actually takes to fly across the world, it all comes together.

A hidden gem for the action film fan out there, and don't be afraid of subtitles.
