Trapper - What Have You Done?
19 November 1998 | by Seanie CSee all my reviews

This is an appalling film. Wayne plays a low-rent Charlton Heston (Airport) while Connie Sellecca spends far too long having wind muss up her hair. The reaction from the FBI at the movie's far-less-than-climactic conclusion - a landing of truly miraculous proportions - is hilariously preposterous. Hawaii never looked so awful. Trapper John MacIntyre, what have you done?
