Very average jungle shocker .........
13 June 2010 | by merklekranzSee all my reviews

"Cut and Run" has some pretty bad acting that tends to drag it down. Willie Ames, Richard Bright, and Karen Black are especially awful. Michael Berryman really doesn't do much other than grunt and pop up whenever least expected. Richard Lynch, although top billed, has very little screen time. The Venezuelan jungle locations are spectacular, and most of the special effects are acceptable, the best being a man torn in half by a native trap. The biggest letdown is with the script, which is unfocused, and at times makes very little sense. Thus, considering all the pluses and minuses, what remains is a very average jungle shocker, and nothing more. - MERK
