Worst TITLE
20 January 2003 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

Some screenwriters and producers don't seem to know how it works, usually you need to surprise the audience (if there is any for this one), but with a title like this it gets completely absurd. Guess what happens after about 45 minutes of movie boring around and knowing what is going to happen. You found it? NO? Yes, you are right!!! A kidnapping! (weird he!) And guess where!!! No i don't want to spoil it! LOL. And as a last test, guess who they are going to kidnap?

The rest of the movie is like in many TV-Movies, no brain actions, a blond chick running around most of the time in bikini and actors that think they are the men!!! They mean really mean it! I hope they never looked to the movie to see them self.

And the logic of the movie, well you better not have over 70 I.Q., otherwise you gone start to see to many mistakes and actions that have no sense, with dialogues

Very bad overall. 2/10 because i saw even worse then this but i liked the boats a lot, :).
