Barnes & Noble
James Clavell's blockbuster novel of rivalry, extortion, and murder comes to particularly splashy life in this 1988 NBC miniseries that is set in the high-stakes business world of Hong Kong, where it was largely filmed. Pierce Brosnan is Ian Dunross, just named the tai-pan (CEO) of the powerful Anglo-Asian trading company Struan & Co. Before the champagne has stopped bubbling, a nasty piece of work named Quillan Gornt (played with relish by Indy 4's most notable absentee, John Rhys-Davies) targets Struan for a hostile takeover. Suddenly plunged into a criminal underworld of international espionage, deception, and financial crises, Dunross turns up the heat by engaging in a dangerous romance with his nemesis' aide (Deborah Raffin). But with danger lurking around every corner, Dunross ultimately sees he has no choice but to fight for his company's honor and survival. A lush two-night affair, Noble House also features Tia Carrere in a pre-Wayne's World role, plus such veteran screen favorites as Denholm Elliot, John Houseman, Nancy Kwan, Burt Kwouk, and Ben Masters.

    great!!

    Dont go into this one expecting james bond, thats usually why people dont enjoy alot of brosnan's movies is because there expecting 007. and they dont get it. This is a political/corporate thriller/mystery/caper... that will keep you engaged for the whole 6 to 8 hours. Probably the best of brosnans pre-bond works. He certainly plays a character he often doesnt, and does a great job with it.
