Storyline

Air force Lieutenant Harris starts for a flight to Boa Boa, on board Reverend Mitchell with a box containing a part of a top-secret extraterrestrial key. They get lost in a supernatural storm and find themselves after an emergency landing in kind of a Bermuda triangle, 5,000 miles off their course. Home again, no one believes Harris' story, and his crew suspiciously denies it too. Harris is thrown in jail, but manages to escape. Together with Mitchell's daughter he seeks the lost part of the key and its secret. Written by Tom Zoerner <Tom.Zoerner@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

Dear o dear.
6 March 2004 | by See all my reviews

The first half hour of this film wasn't bad at all & I thought it was another ridiculous IMDB rating. Unfortunately it degenerated into a farce and the 3.5 rating ended pretty justified. I don't want to waste much time on this but two scenes were particularly poor & deserve comment. The Russian roulette & Bomber climbing out on the side of the plane, were both laughable (in the wrong ways) in the extreme. The ending was pretty atrotious too. I had trouble also working out how plan of the 'Evil Savage' linked in with the Bermuda Triangle type section, and what control (if any Savage had over that). Also the deaths of the other original survivors & the kidnapping of the girls' father seemed to be glaized over so quick they went unnoticed.

An ok start but awful last hour.

3/10
