Better than most TV-movies
9 February 2000 | by (Skive,Denmark) – See all my reviews

This TV movie is a whole lot better than usual for TV-movies,in short it's a modern interpretation of African Queen,good solid acting and actually funny.Instead of moving up a river as in African Queen,they use a truck,of an absolutely elderly model,but with its' own personality.
