Dayton Ka'ne, Perfect!
9 November 2002 | by (Lancaster, California) – See all my reviews

The only thing I liked about this film is Dayton Ka'ne. Perfect. But Mia Farrow was badly chosen. Miscast. They should have chosen a much younger actress. Dayton Ka'ne was in another film, completed in 1979, "Beyond The Reef" (1981) (Also known as "Shark Boy of Bora Bora" and "Sea Killer"), produced by Dino De Laurentiis. I sure wish "Beyond the Reef" was available on VHS and DVD. It would have been nice if Dayton Ka'ne had a longer acting career.
