Reviews
ReviewSource Variety
Review Tale [from the novel Faraday's Flowers by Tony Kenrick] is a phony, thoroughgoing concoction. A missionary (Madonna) enlists the services of a down-and-out, would-be adventurer (Sean Penn) to help her track down a substantial supply of opium that disappeared under mysterious circumstances a year before, in 1937, during the Japanese occupation of China...The blood-stirring premise provides the excuse for any number of encounters with exotic and shady characters who would have been right at home in Warner Bros foreign intrigue mellers of the 1940s...But centerstage is the completely illogical relationship between the hustler and missionary. Penn seems game and has energy while Madonna can't for a moment disguise that her character makes no sense at all.
