Looks great, but is otherwise terrible
8 June 2015 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

You may know John Rhys-Davies as an actor, but you may not know that, for one time at least, he co-wrote a movie screenplay. "Tusks" is that movie, of course, and it explains why his character in the movie is a successful ladies' man and gets a lot more screen time than the protagonists. But despite all this, Davies seems to be performing on autopilot. Maybe he sensed upon filming that the story for the movie is an absolute bore. It takes more than half of this one hundred minute movie to fully set up the crisis of the movie, and that first portion of the movie is slow, endless, and pretty much action free. The remaining running time isn't that much better. The only thing that stopped me from pressing the stop button on my DVD remote was the African scenery, which looks nice especially since it's also well photographed. The only other possible thing the movie has to offer for viewers is the chance to see James Coburn's son in an acting role, though his part lasts only for a few minutes.
