It's true : one of the worst movie ever, Madonna or not (web)
When the opening credits start, you are surprised how it's immediately bad : the song is lame, the visual inspiration is particularly awful. Then, the first scene comes and you are already bored. Then, comes Madonna, Sean Penn and nothing changes : there are no story, no action, no exoticism ! This is like this for nearly 100 minutes and if you wonder why the movie bombed, well, now you know ! For those who expected a firework between the new spouses, it's a disappointment : it's maybe the first couple on a screen who doesn't exude a little chemistry between them ! Shot on locations on Macau, you expected to feel like « Empire of the sun » or « Indy 2 » but the places are limited to the port, a lake, and looks like today! The big action sequence is a ridiculous rickshaw pursuit and the special effects are just laughable as much as they are bad (exploded hands, tomato blood!)... In other words, the movie is just totally uninteresting and in addition totally salvaged by a inept crew!
