The Dope of Filmdom
20 April 2004 | by ptb-8See all my reviews

Awesome awful poverty row Carribbean coconut extravaganza uses TV level production values to showcase the boozy brutish behavior of Bruce Bennett's power crazed island dictator. He actually seems to be drunk on screen to even be passably able to cope with the shoddy goings on and the loutish behavior. Like a 70 minute condensing of the worst Columbia Trader Tom serial ever made and mixed with loony bar room antics....and spiced up a bit with some Eurotrash floozy who does a hootchie kootchie dance in reel 3. It all ends like a Flaming Moe when the locals and weak white loafers set fire to all the dried leaves piled about. Even illegal immigrants would be hard pressed to find this interesting. It is like everyone on screen is retarded, as if GILLIGANS ISLAND and ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOOS NEST had the reels mixed up. The blonde dame in the high heels and fishnet stockings is actually billed as The Yugslavian Bombshell. Wasn't she off the beaten track! The film seems to be made in some Mexican picnic ground.
