why do they bother making films like this?
15 March 2005 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

i'll be honest i only picked this up 'cause Busey was in it...usually like his roles, but i don't think I've ever seen an actor wing it in like Gary did here. Every single scene he's in he stands emotionless reading off his lines, an easy pay-day for Gary is suppose but sheer torture for his fans.

this film is basically a crap submarine rescue film, nothing interesting happens, the action is tame, the story is child like, the acting unspectacular.

avoid this forever, even if your a Gary Busey fan please do not watch this.

why do they bother?
