Movie Reviews

For Henstrich fans only
Michael Butts | 05/26/2003
(3 out of 5 stars)

"If you are willing to watch Natasha Henstrich in virtually anything, then this movie is a good bet for you. It's a watchable if fairly predictable thriller, in which the main plus is that Natasha does indeed graciously show us her fabulous naked breasts. If that's reason enough to check it out, then I can recommend that you rent or buy this flic. If on the other hand, you are looking for an action-packed movie with a charismatic bad guy and an eye opening climactic conclusion, I'm afraid you will be sadly disappointed by this film."
PREDATORS
Michael Butts | Martinsburg, WV USA | 12/02/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"CARACARA is a species of hawk that figures in this well done film. In fact, there are two "predators" as a viewer will discover.
Despite the negative reviews of other viewers, I found the film very interesting and original. Natasha Henstridge steps out of her alien shoes from "Species" and plays an ornithologist who has the caracara named Humphrey. One night two men claiming to be FBI agents ask her if they can use her apartment for top secret surveillance. Her girlfriend talks her into doing it, and before long, a fill in agent, played by the dashing Johnathon Schaech (Hush, Judas, Forsaken) shows up and Natasha falls for him. All, however, is not as it seems and a conspiratorial plot involving President Nelson Mendela unfolds, and Natasha is caught in the middle. Lauren Hutton appears as Natasha's alcoholic mama, and David Filipowich does a nice turn as detective Jack Pellegrino.
The photography is wintry and evocative; the musical by Christophe Beck is pleasant, and the performances are good. I found it entertaining in a guilty way, and forgave it for any of its minor flaws. The caracara was a beautiful and original plot device."
