Good, but Needed More
6 August 2010 | by (Arkansas) – See all my reviews

This was a very good movie, but a bit slow at times. Joely Fischer and Charlotte Ross are very good actors and gave great performances. They star as sisters who are close, but disagree. The younger sister (Ross) is abducted by modern-day pirates and the older sister (Fischer) seeks help from a man who is familiar with these particular men. The men who have abducted the woman have a long history of suspicious activity. If you are looking for something to watch when there is nothing on but reruns, see this. You may be only slightly disappointed, but you may enjoy it more than you think you will. It would have been better with some more action and a better actor as the lead pirate, but it was altogether a pretty good movie for a night that you cannot sleep.
