Did You Know?

"Mr. Charlie" is recognized as the first submersible drilling barge rig in the world to drill offshore wells. It is now used as a museum and training facility in Morgan City, Louisiana.See more »
Factual errors: In the storyline description it says that the crew has no way off the rig. But drill rigs are usually equipped with at least two lifeboats that can each hold the entire crew. And in the opening shot of the movie an orange lifeboat is clearly visible on the side of the rig.See more »

This movie should give hope to all aspiring film makers., 6 October 2010
Author: Harry Barracuda from Bahrain

If you're wondering why, with a summary like that, I can only give it 1 out of 10, let me explain.

If someone can take a script this bad and a cast so poor and still persuade people to hand their money over to it, then, if you're an aspiring movie maker, you should be ecstatic.

It has absolutely everything bad you can think of in a movie: Horrendously poor editing; a completely pointless flashback to a few minutes earlier, in black and white to remind you (if you're a complete idiot) what just happened; dreadful, tinny low budget music to match the low budget set; and a man in a plastic monkey suit grabbing people in a quick blur of camera motion while someone throws fake blood around.

And dialogue that's so poor that if they had managed to hire a cast of decent actors they would have ended up shaking their heads at the inanity of it all.

There are some tits in it. That ought to double the viewing audience.

Give this one a wide berth unless you have the choice of watching this or sticking map pins into your eyeballs.
