I Loved This Movie For Several Reasons
14 December 2005 | by (Wichita, Kansas) – See all my reviews

1. The acting is down-to-earth realistic. There isn't glamor like the big budget movies the main actors are usually in, and that makes it realistic.

2. Thrill was filmed at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk in Santa Cruz, California. I worked there as a ride operator for 2 1/2 years, and miss that job.

3. The plot was realistic. As I stated before, there wasn't any glitz and glamor, except the fact that Theresa's home is owned by a professional athlete (my husband and I don't like sports, so I can't remember who the athlete is). If she were really financially in trouble, she could have sold the house, or car.

4. Realistic special FX. The FX I know of; The roller coaster isn't run by a computer, nor is it laid out like the computer indicated. The log ride was manually triggered to stop the boats before the fall (I loved working on that ride). The rides that were running without ride operators were most likely turned on with the operators blocked out and some had to have something pushing a pedal down, like a brick. The train operator probably crouched down inside the engine cabin. The trains' horn was heard, and I know that there is a string you have to pull on.

5. Last, but not least; The romance between Anne and Jack is heartwarming, and realistic. I honestly think there is room for a sequel.
