She's Cute, He's Bad, and it falls short... but the scenery rocks!
14 May 2003 | by (Washington, DC) – See all my reviews

Hey folks,

I have seen this movie and David Hasselhoff is, well, David Hasselhoff. He's a pretty bad actor -- despite his many obvious good qualities (looks, chiseled body, hair).

Anyway -- there are many many scenes in the movie that take your breath away. Seeing the ruined cities from the eruption of Mt. Pinutobo on the island of Luzon in the Philippines is a fantastic, albeit sad testament to the power of nature.

The movie was pretty hokie -- but at the same time relatively authentic. They shot most of this on location in the Philippines and I must say that they were pretty authentic with what you saw. I was impressed. I had visited many of the places they shot the film except for the area where they visited her grandmother's town.

I give Donita Rose *** stars, and David Hasselhoff **. Neither of them acted pretty well, but with a bad script, what can you expect.

The sights and sounds were amazing and authentic, Donita rose is awesome to look at anytime, but the movie just falls short of any expectations people may have about this movie.

Watch for the scenery and some of the cinematography, (and to catch a glimpse of the Asian bombshell Donita!) But other than, don't waste your time.

Vanran..
