Almost nothing to say.
31 December 2007 | by (England) – See all my reviews

Barely anything to say on this one. Couple get taken hostage by other couple on boat.

About 30 occasions along the way where they could've or should have escaped

But they never managed it.

In the end they way they do is pretty tame, so much so you expect the kidnappers to still be alive when the credits roll.

It's a job to stretch this out to 10 lines.

I suppose the lack of a 'finale' made it slightly more true to life and I made it through to the end.

4/10
