Uneven, but not horrible
30 August 2005 | by wendy-spammageSee all my reviews

The story is pure romance novel stuff, of course: woman recently jilted runs away to be alone in a remote place (in this case, on a small island) to lick her wounds. There is a terrible storm, howling wind, rain, etc., and the following morning she finds a wounded man washed up on the shore in front of her rented house. With help, she gets him into her house and nurses him back to health, and when he awakens, he doesn't remember anything about himself. The only clue to his identity is the message engraved on his watch: "To Matt, with love". Love blossoms, of course.

The writing is uneven and the story leaps over some potentially dramatic scenes in favour of the romantic ones, which left me a little unsatisfied. Their relationship seemed to race along without any real foundation except physical attraction - there was never a common interest or taste identified, so the relationship didn't seem as solidly believable as some in the SoL series. Some of the dialogue is awfully stilted and corny. The acting is uneven in places and is certainly not among Dack Rambo's best work, but I think much of that is due to the unevenness of the script. He is handsome, and Susan Almgren is pretty, with far too much blonde hair. The wardrobe lady needs to be smacked for putting Dack in a blue shirt with black somethings on, that looked like a pajama shirt.

The sex scene is short and mostly glossed-over, disappointingly.
