Tenuously based on the legends of Easter Island, Chile, this story details a civil war between the two tribes on the island: the Long Ears and the Short Ears. A warrior from the ruling class falls in love with a girl from the lower class, and must decide on his position in a time of great civil unrest. The ruling class are demanding larger and larger Moai (stone statues), a task which the lower class and the island ecology are more and more reluctant to provide. Written by

I had two actors in here I usually enjoy watching: Jason Scott Lee ("Map of the Human Heart") and Sandrine Holt ("Black Robe"). It had also had beautiful Easter Island scenery and it had a bunch of pretty half-naked women.
What's not to like? Well, the stupid story, for one thing.
The dialog was straight out of a Grade B flick, and that's being generous. The characters also were totally unbelievable, thanks to the terrible dialog and fake accents. I couldn't enjoy the beautiful Holt because she was sent to a cave early on and wasn't seen again until near the end of the film.
How people, including one of the few national film critics I like - Michael Medved - could rave about this film is totally mind-boggling. It was horrible.
