(br) wrote: This is a great documentary!
(ru) wrote: Tragic story of a rather introverted woman who doesn't know quite how to raise her troubled child, then has to live in the aftermath of the horror he leaves behind. Excellently performed by all the leads.
(br) wrote: This modern day western is just not compelling enough to work. I was never able to get very involved in it. The characters were unappealing, the story is old hat. Ithas it's shares of cliches. It does have some style, but not enough to make it work.
(ru) wrote: It was pretty sad and sort of all over the place. There were a lot of subjects in the movie that the directer wanted to have but were stretched too thin to make a positive impact.
(ca) wrote: For a straight to video movie, this action packed thriller is one of the better ones. Wesley Snipes is always easy to watch, and the story isn't as confusing as most of these types of movies usually are.
(kr) wrote: some great ideas but beatty didn't quite pull it off. He should have just stuck with the "Politician who doesn't give an f" premise instead of turning into a rapper.

(gb) wrote: BEST MOVIE EVER No seriously, this movie has everything. Throughout it, there's suspense, dark comedy, and quite a few unexpected twists.
(es) wrote: OH MY GOD ! This is why I never buy a movie on DVD unless I watch it first, so I won't get stuck with a crappy movie. This could possibly be the worst vampire movie I have ever seen! The music, the storyline, the vampires and the acting SUCKED so bad ! I only gave this movie a shot because Peter DeLuise starred in it and I liked him on 21 Jumpstreet but man was I wrong, this was a bad movie !
(jp) wrote: It's basically an Italian exploitation cannibal version of Indiana Jones. It has all the basic tropes you would expect from these kinds of movies with natives running around, boobs, miniatures, boobs, blood, bad acting, boobs, stock footage of animals, and boobs. It seems like the movie is going to end at like an hour (and it really could have), but they tacked on another plot to add another 20 minutes. It's good fun, but oh so dumb and kind of middle of the pack as far as these kinds of movies go.
(br) wrote: Heartwarming, family friendly movie. It's best remembered today for its title song.
(mx) wrote: For the first half hour, this looks like some almost promising version of Brighton Rock or Quadrophenia set in Weymouth. It's not great, but apart from the terrible prevalent theme music, it's ok. Lots of classic cars and bikes, interesting scenery, very clear audio/b&w print on this DVD. After that, the Hammer 'pedigree' shines through and the movie becomes a nonsensical metaphorical 'horror' film that neither scares, thrills or interests. A decent cast and a reasonable budget have been sadly squandered here and it was as much as I could do to pay any attention to the last hour or so. 5/10 or maybe 5.5 if I came from Weymouth.
