Trivia

Since this film takes place prior to Blaise's exploits with The Network, the criminal organization she ran before becoming an agent for British Intelligence, the character of Willie Garvin, Blaise's right-hand man, does not appear. This is the only official Modesty Blaise adventure (comic strip, novel or film) in which Garvin does not appear. See more »

Goofs

Modesty? You must be joking
1 March 2004 | by DavidHeyoSee all my reviews

I just saw the DVD and ask myself why Quentin Tarantino agreed to have is name mentioned as "Quentin Tarantino presents"? Alexandra Staden is so bad as Modesty Blaise that you spend most of the time wondering why the chief gangster doesn't kill her immediately to make her shut up. And, by the way ,Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, the actor playing the "bad guy" looks too good looking for that part. Never witnessed such a stupid casting. The film is about a hold up in a casino. Hostages are taken and what do we get?... The girl telling the boring story of her life.
