Lisa come back!
30 December 2001 | by (Dubai) – See all my reviews

This whole movie can be likened to a beginners attempt at a cartoon. The characatures are obvious and stereotypical, a great deal of the acting is wooden and predictable, the script barks and the directorial pacing leaves no suspence at all. The cast is a collection of local journeymen and a selection of international character actors. Tony Barry as usual is top shelf and worth his salary. Temuera Morrison is a very curious choice as a leading man and lacks both versatility and range, he only ever seems to play Temuera Morrison... and as for making him Lisa Eilbachers love interest? do me a favour!

The one (and only) highlight of the whole dreary sub-road movie effort is a gratuitous and extremely welcome upskirt of Ms Eilbacher (which added nothing to the story, but had me on the pause button for sure!) Well Done Mr Murphy!
