Storyline

Husband and wife doctors Paul and Kim Jordan need a drastic change. Distraught by the inexplicable death of their baby, Paul (C. Thomas Howell) convinces Kim to abandon their American lives and join a medical mission in Thailand. It seems to be just the distraction they need, until the day Paul is kidnapped by human traffickers who need a surgeon to operate on their wounded leader. Kim is left alone in a strange country, trying desperately to find her husband with no proof of what happened. While captive on the gangs' secluded island, Paul is caged with Malcolm Andrews (John Rhys-Davies), an Englishman being held for ransom. With nothing to do but talk, the two men quickly clash over philosophy, as Malcolm relies on a bold faith in God and Paul believes no god would allow these evils to happen in the world.

Missed Opportunity
27 February 2018 | by davidhill-94841See all my reviews

Whilst in possession of a film crew and at least two good Western actors and three good 'bad guy' local actors, all on location in Thailand, why didn't the director make a 1st rate movie about pirates, human trafficking and kidnapping, all topically relevant themes? My guess is that having turned up on location and finding a lead actress who seems she couldn't be bothered with it all and possibly on a limited budget and time scale, he just did the best he could and went home. This is no 'Apocalypse Now', it's just about 'adequate' as very light entertainment, possibly with financial backing from a 'faith group' as the movie's over done, religious message would suggest. What I find so disappointing, is that this could have been a great movie given the location and topic. In my view, it's such a pity that a great opportunity was missed.
