A flat, weak, insipid film, with hardly no turns
28 February 2014 | by (adelaide, australia) – See all my reviews

What happened to C Thomas Howell? Really? He has to resort to crap. He's made so many crappy B films, more than I've had hot dinners. The frightening aspect is he's still making them. Just check out his latest-Sick people. This quite flat, most of nothing happening movie screams B grade from the start. Just watch how cheaply the Movie's title is flung across the screen. The film's only merit is watching Howell (in not his best performance either) as a former racing car driver and ex girlfriend (Carrere), who means trouble, get it on. Baldwin as Howell's friend who helps him run this Mexican resort, that's quite a beautiful place, kind of resembles the apartment in Melrose Place, ceases to exist. He should of told the director to go and shove it. I don't think we even saw Howell doing his car racing. What I can remember about this flick, is that it was mostly flat and had me, mystified a few times, like saying to myself, "Is this how far this stories gonna be taken. There's little character or story development here, and as a B grade, this is one of the worst B flicks Howell has done, his first actually being the much better To Protect And Serve, and talking about serving, the film only serves little purpose in watching Carrere, or admiring the beautiful surrounds of this resort. Where did the script go?
