Dark Tide Movie Review
30 May 2007 | by (www.GoneWithTheTwins.com) – See all my reviews

Dark Tide, a steamy erotic thriller that loses its steam about ten minutes in should appeal to fans of the stars, but few others. Tide has gained a slight cult following due to its obscurity on video and lack of a DVD release, but other than a few oddly satisfactory (and violent) action sequences and the famous underwater cavern love scene, the bland storyline and grating narrative warrant this film perfect for DVD where the luxury of chapter selection would be invaluable.

Andi (Brigitte Bako) joins her husband Tim (Chris Sarandon) on a tropical island to help him with the dangerous task of capturing poisonous sea snakes for their venom. Andi's flagrant sensuality attracts the attention of hired hand Dak (Richard Tyson) and when Tim becomes bitterly obsessed with his faltering job, the muscled brute uses the opportunity to seduce the confused girl. When she realizes her mistake and refuses to give in to any more of Dak's advances, he becomes jealously violent and sabotages Tim's boat sending the diver to the hospital. With Tim out of the way, no one can protect Andi from Dak's barbaric lust…except Andi herself.

Dark Tide borders on exploitation but attempts to mask its intent with a thin shell of action-thriller seriousness. Plenty of nudity and fake sea snakes abound, but seldom does any emotion other than lust seep into this watery revenge drama. Though the final sequences do build a fair amount of suspense, they seem oddly out of place coupled with the earlier mediocrity. The acting in Dark Tide suits its purpose (though Bako is clearly the only one with any abilities in that department) but stilted dialogue and a lackluster script detract from what could have been a worthwhile revenge picture. And while Bako is easy on the eyes, her narration at the beginning and end of the film are certainly not easy on the ears. If curiosity or the pairing of Bako and Tyson entices you enough to give this thriller your time, try for the Unrated Version with extended sequences not shown in theaters.
