Trivia

"The Most Dangerous Game" short story by Richard Connell, is referenced implicitly, when Derek Johnson tells Diana that her project reminds him of a story he read, and he sums it up thus: a game hunter finds himself alone on an isolated island, starts attracting ships to the island, and hunts the human survivors of the shipwrecks. Like Diana, that man would give the captives a knife and a head start, then he would follow them in the jungle to hunt and kill them. If the captives eluded him, he would let them go, but no one had eluded him so far... See more »

Not so much lethal as low-budget and lame.

A female army cadet, assaulted by her commanding officer and unable to obtain justice through a military court, decides to get even. So she buys an island (as you do) recruits other rape victims to help (naturally all beauty-queen-supermodel material) and invites each of the men who have wronged her on an 'erotic adventure' – in fact to be hunted down and killed. As the movie begins, the last of them, the CO himself, sets off cheerfully and alone to the mysterious island – even though he must know that all the others have vanished. And so a tough guy hero type from special ops is sent to sort things out.

The story is nonsense, the plot full of holes big enough to drive a tank through, the d-list TV actors patchy to poor, the characters paper-thin and the dialog corny. There are no surprises and the action is never that exciting or convincing. The island locations are pretty, but this is very low budget stuff. Some people will no doubt enjoy the women undressing every chance they get, but there is no sex, little graphic violence and this wouldn't get an 18 rating today.

The biggest problem is the premise, not so much idiotic as idiotically presented. Top of all her classes, including unarmed combat, we're told several times how the cadet has just creamed a male soldier in the gym. Her CO asks her to back off so the poor men in her class can have a chance. When she refuses, he simply lays her across his desk and rapes her. Does he use a weapon? No. Does he hit her? No, she is unmarked by the attack. Does this unarmed combat A-student fight back? Not at all that we see. Does she scream or call for help? No – soldiers posted just outside the door hear only feeble whimpers. Someone who could be overpowered so easily by a single unarmed assailant can never be effectively transformed into the threat needed to make this movie work.
