According to Andrew Lee Propst, he and Tuttle were blindfolded and had their feet tied together for nearly all of their captivity. Obviously, this would have been hard to film. See more »

You need blind faith to endure this Rasputin v. Tintin mush
9 June 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Be highly aware that the positive reviews written here are driven by the religion of the writers.

The score is truly appalling, ill-fitted to the context, almost constant throughout the film and extremely irritating.

The narrative is cardboard cut-out in it's execution and as convincing in it's delivery as the fable that the founder of the Latter Day Saint movement, Joseph Smith, was directed to golden plates buried near his home by an angel. (Oh, and the angel repossessed the plates before they ever saw the light of day - convenient eh?).

If you want to watch a couple of preppies handcuffed to a radiator for 90 minutes, be my guest.
