Trivia

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 »

Goofs

Billy Zane smokes cigars and cigarettes, even though he swam to the island from quite a distance in the ocean. He also has numerous "wardrobe" changes; where these extra shorts, shirts and hats came from is a mystery. The woman gains a hoodie out of nowhere. And items appear such as milk crates, fishing nets, etc. The number of goofs is embarrassingly high. See more »

Good premise but poor execution.
24 July 2006 | by (Beverly Hills, California) – See all my reviews

The story started out well by quickly going into action where we see two couples, including Billy Zane and Kelly Brook, chartering a boat in some area like in the Caribbean. One of the boat crew is played by Di Pace who gets into a quarrel with his girlfriend on the dock. Well, things don't go well after that because the girlfriend puts a curse on him.

They are now out on the ocean and there is an accident and one of the couple and Di Pace are the only survivors stranded on a tiny island with no way out. Tension begin to arise because of an attraction that is brewing between Pace and Brook. In the background, the ex-girlfriend is influencing the dynamics among the three individuals by using her voodoo powers. It all ends up with a final showdown between the parties I liked the premise of the story. It had good acting. Billy Zane is always a solid performer, albeit little bit over the top. Kelly Brook and Di Pace, both unknown to me did their part well. My problem with this movie is that the director or the person who wrote the script, seemed unsure whether this movie should be a supernatural story or a thriller. I suppose the movie can be both but if that was the case, the movie was not well executed for that purpose.

I also had problem with Billy Zane's character in that we don't know whether his behavior is influenced by voodoo or whether it was innate within him. As you can see, the script should have been rewritten to flesh out those important details.

Overall, a decent movie. I was going to give it a 4 but I am instead, going to give it a 5. In retrospect, it is not a bad movie. It is OK as a video movie but nothing else.
