This movie SUCKED
18 May 2001 | by (Arkansas) – See all my reviews

Okay, everyone has talked about the bad story line, bad direction, not so great acting. What about all the continuity problems??? Just as a single, and one of the most glaring examples: This group of 7 people are white-water rafting (not too white) down this river. A guy from the shore shoots one of the guys in a raft and he and the other 2 guys fall out of the raft. In the next scene, nobody is even remotely upset about their friend getting shot. In fact, there's no discussion of it whatsoever. They're on the side of the river and Robert Patrick is hitting on Chiara Caselli. Can't blame him, but still... Okay, so then we cut to the next scene. Remember, it was 6 living people and 1 dead last we saw. Now, about 10 or 12 of them are walking through the jungle together? How'd the others get there? Drive? If so, why didn't they all drive instead of white-water raft to this place?

This was the most ridiculously stupid movie I've seen in a long time.
