Obviously . . . A Foreign (Non-USA) Film
1 June 2003 | by BILLIIISee all my reviews

What can I say about this film? As an action film it took the foreign route of having a little bit of everything (suspense, surprise ending pathos, good appropriate music, beautiful scenery, boats, planes, helicopters, good guys, bad guys, a plot, a moral(s) very decently recapped at the ending; . . .

and YET TO ME it came off as an American B++ soap opera; the actors were too studied, too stiff. The plot held together, but was simple. The photography and decor was splendid.

I ENJOYED this movie, and might even play it over. I was ENTERTAINING in a mindless way, and that's OK. Sometimes I just want to watch an action movie without dissecting it, and this movie couldn't be dissected.

I probably should have rated it a 7, but emotionally I want to give it an 8. Now for a REAL action movie, I am going to put on one of Clint Eastwood's films.
