Weak production and acting in what could have been an interesting story...
19 May 2001 | by (Evansville, Indiana USA) – See all my reviews

1st watched 5/19/2001 - 3 out of 10 (Dir-Timothy Bond): Weak production and acting in what could have been an interesting story. This is basically about experts in disarming mines working in Algeria where there are thousands of mines placed by rebel forces to help their cause in a long 30-year war that they have been having with the government. The problem is that this Canadian production really had no strong actors or actresses to pull this off and make it interesting. Half the way through I was ready for the movie to be over. If you would take this same setting with the same basic story with a good director, and actors who worked hard at their parts it could have been an interesting look into a country whose lifestyle is not explored often, but do we get this? No way dudes!! These "hoseheads" didn't do what they needed to make it work, eh...
