Ho Hum, Ho Hum
1 August 2007 | by (Tulsa OK) – See all my reviews

Caught this on a day following all night on the phone to Europe - so just "vegged-out" and watched half-awake. Half-awake is quite sufficient to follow this story.

In the midst of these psychos pointing large revolvers at them, enough dynamite planted in the attic to demolish the famous bridge spanning the River Kwai --- and the protagonists assurances they are intending to blow them up --- Mom finds time to calmly see if the bad guys won't let her kids get some sleep. She later engages in a quiet, but stern, monologue, lecturing her somewhat rebellious daughter about life's choices, and her need to become more thoughtful about same.

This story does look like a soap opera with many disjointed scenes, and another person who commented here hit the proverbial nail on the head, describing this flick as a combination of "Die Hard" and "Leave it to Beaver."

Daniel Baldwin seemed as if he might nod-off at any moment, and his young confederate (alluding back to "...Beaver" again) seemed like Eddie Haskell with a revolver.

All-in-all, it looked as if it might have been written by several different ("C") students in a script writing class, different aspects, loosely connected.

There is even an intended surprise towards the end, but by that time the complete lack on any empathy towards these characters as presented makes this entirely moot. Give it 3*, rather than 1 or 2, simply because it is one of those presentations providing a minimum amount of fascination in its mediocrity.
