Jen and Mannuel seem to be the only survivors to wash up on an island...but before long Jack shows lying in a rock pool...and here's where the tale turns nasty Written by
This is the third film where Billy Zane is on a sinking ship and becomes involved in a love triangle following Dead Calm (1989) and Titanic (1997). See more »
During their love scene, Jack ties up Jennifer's hands with his belt, while she is still wearing a bra. Then in a subsequent part of the scene, her bra is removed. This would be impossible to do after tying up her hands with the belt. See more »
The best things in life are 'Three' (if you'll forgive the pun), or so the text on the back of the DVD box would have us believe. 'Three' is described as a steamy erotic thriller guaranteed to create an atmosphere so tense you can barely swallow for fear whilst at the same time it is full of hot performances with lavish sexual tension on the screen.
This is what we are led to believe by the studio.
Alas, like so many promises in life I fear these comments are a well intentioned attempt to try and hide the truth of the matter.
And the truth of the matter is really very simple.
The truth is printed on the front cover of the DVD where the crafty devils at the studio placed a rather attractive picture of the lead lady on the front cover of the DVD along with the words "Kelly finally exposes all." This, I believe, is a far better description of the true merits of the movie.
If like me, you rented this film because you heard on the grapevine that Kelly Brook was actually filmed in the buff then I feel you represent the vast majority of aficionados of this rather delightful film, and let's be honest the storyline is ropey as hell, and the acting poor, and the characters are dislikeable. But does this matter? Not a jot.
The film moves along at a fair pace, the location is fabulous and Kelly Brook is stunning. And to be honest it is a very big plus of this film that not once did I feel the need to fast forward to the more juicy scenes where Ms Brook really comes into her own as the lead lady.
To try and wrap this film up as a thriller was unnecessary and really detracted from the film itself . We all know the real reason why anybody would rent this film, and to this end the movie does its job perfectly.
All in all this film was not great, but hey, we all know what we wanted and we got it. Can you really ask for anything more?
