Actor Barkhad Abdi is a person I would not want to be on the same boat as him.
Abdi plays a poor fisherman, Miguel who thinks his golden goose has dropped a golden egg when he finds Dr Kevin Riley (Eion Bailey) a heart surgeon on holiday in the Caribbean stranded on a broken down motorboat with his family and in desperate need for help.
After drifting for some days, his wife and son exhausted, Miguel seizes the opportunity to demand money from the Kevin. Then once the money has been transferred he leaves them all for dead fearing they would go to the police.
Kevin makes the search for his family and Miguel once he realises that the local police are no help.
This is another American in peril story abroad. The good doctor should had figured that there was no way the fisherman would release his family once he got the money. It really is a B movie, cheesy, the acting is rather wooden, Danny Glover is really too old to play a cop but it has some thrills but the plot is nonsensical.
