Confusing sub plots,dull, forgettable movie.
9 March 2005 | by ChuckStraubSee all my reviews

I saw "Booby Trap" as the main billing of a double feature DVD put out by Something Weird Video. The second feature on the DVD is a film called "The Takers". Just a warning about "The Takers". It's an early 70s Porn movie. Although "Booby Trap" has a lot of problems, and it does have nudity and sexual situations, it's not porn. By viewing the trailer for "Booby Trap" I was expecting an action movie with an excess of blood, guts, and nudity. It turned out to be very mild and much tamer than I imagined. This movie starts off with an ex marine gone bad wanting to kill hippies. The movie may have been all right if they stuck to that plot. Unfortunately, the film quickly goes off into several confusing sub plots. Along with this, we meet a strange assortment of under examined characters. The confusing sub plots, poor character development, combined with dull acting make this movie spiral downhill quickly. Even after watching the entire movie, it's hard to say if the main character was supposed to be a hero or a villain. They should have kept the plot simple. At least the movie would have had a chance of being OK. I can't recommend watching this. It's a very forgettable movie, boring, and a waste of time.
