Throughout the film Lisa (Anne Dupont) doesn't wear any jewelery. When she is kidnapped, she is unconscious and carried away by the villain and is clearly wearing a metal watch on her left wrist.

OK, but not very nice!
6 April 2007 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

Take it for what it is... The movie has got bad writing and semi bad acting.. However if you manage to overlook these faults it might be OK. If you take it for what it is it might be an entertaining action flick.... I think the lead actor is pretty decent, but overlooking his work judged by IMDb, one can't be impressed. If you see it for what it is, it is a mindless no thinking action movie. It is the perfect movie for a hangover. A plus for the movie is seeing the legendary Pat Morita, even though only for a small part, but it is nice to see the old martial arts expert on film again.. the setting of the movie is really nice, it takes place in the Caribbean or something. It is always nice to see views like those.
