This movie is an embarrassment to Hawaii and to Kona.
1 August 2018 | by lilinoeduncanSee all my reviews

If you're from the Big Island, particularly the west side, this might be fun to watch to catch the familiar scenery and faces of people you know. However, if this doesn't hold hometown appeal for you, it's a TERRIBLE movie so don't bother. It's characters are shallow, 2-dimensional stereotypes and it utterly BUTCHERS (and also outright fabricates) Hawaii's history. There is also a baffling absence of any native Hawaiian characters an area of the State that still has one of the highest percentages of native Hawaiians. The acting is truly awful but given that we know that Matt Dillon and Jim Caviezel are at times capable of good acting, it probably has a lot to do with bad directing also. It's VERY clear to me that all the glowing reviews come from people associated with the film, because even if I was in the most generous mood ever, this movie doesn't merit even 2 stars. Sorry, not sorry.
