A Nice Resort Vacation
28 January 2008 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

In Treacherous C. Thomas Howell is cast as a former race car driver who gave up the racing circuit after his mechanic Adam Baldwin was left a paraplegic in an accident. Together they now operate a resort hotel on the coast of Baja California in which they're not just losing their shirts, but an entire joint wardrobe.

But Tom's found love with Tia Carrere and their steamy sex scenes fall this side of pornographic. Which is probably the main reason to watch Treacherous.

Tom, Adam, and Tia get themselves all caught up in a nasty power play involving some corporate bigwigs and gangsters who decide to use the hotel as some kind of rendezvous. Courtesy of an ex-girlfriend racing groupie of Tom's, Randi Ingerman. Tom's getting around if nothing else.

For an action film, Treacherous moves at the pace of a constipated Galapagos tortoise. Now if a couple of them had been in the film, it might have improved things.

It's a pretty sad come down for players who have all been in better and performed better in other things. It looks like the main reason they took the film was to get a nice vacation in Baja out of it.
