Give Rowdy Roddy Some Props.....
11 April 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Hey, he will never get an Oscar for acting, but Roddy showed some humility, a bit of sensitivity and played a romantically confused boat skipper guy that wasn't the usual killing machine he normally plays.

Best part of this film, besides the nice ocean photography, is my main lunatic/drug dealer (will he EVER escape these kind of parts), the legendary Juan Fernandez. Don't think I have ever seen Juan in a film without an Uzi in one hand. This guy always plays these psycho/GQ smoov ultra violent gangsters. The type that will smile at you while he's sticking a knife in sideways. The idea of he and Kitaen as a married drug-running couple was laughable. The Aussie guy from "JAG" (Trevor something) plays his usual brute (who hated Piper for being with his ex), but chills out at the end. Roddy ends up with no one at the conclusion, except his boat and the water, feeling stupid for having done this drivel of a flick.

Late night C level STV (Straight To Video) erotic thriller. A little action/violence, but mundane for a Piper movie. But Roddy tried. And I will give him Mad props for doing the not so obvious thing...
