Typical New Horizons film
30 March 2005 | by BloodTheTelepathicDogSee all my reviews

Anyone who has watched a New Horizons film knows what to expect prior to popping it in your VCR. However this film is coupled with producer Cirio Santiago, so the explosions and nudity are magnified.

The script is clichéd, with the terrorist leader, an extremely hammy Gary Lockwood, kidnapping famed plastic surgeon(Joanna Pettet) to alter his facial features. Lockwood has the typical inept goons at his disposal, who need a little more target acquisition training, and their subscriptions to Playboy rescinded.

The plot has a young couple(Ryan & Smith) traveling to what they believe to be a deserted island, for a romp in paradise. When Smith injures himself, they look for help and stumble across the terrorist camp. They must fight against terrorist and rescue the doctor.

This is really not worth watching, the acting is poor, and the script seems to be one of those continuously recycled B-Rate scripts. Although Leslie Ryan is extremely beautiful, and the director realized he needed to show her naked on numerous occasions for anyone to rent this clichéd yawner.
