Movie Reviews

So-so story with some fairly erotic moments!
Pen Name | United States | 08/03/2004
(3 out of 5 stars)

"I would have enjoyed this film so much more if there was less Stephen Baldwin in it and more Ally Sheedy, Patsy Kensit, and Mimi Langeland. Not that I particularly hate Stephen Baldwin, but I really loved seeing the erotic chemistry between Sheedy and Kensit. Sadly, most of their hottest moments together apparently ended up on the cutting room floor. And that meant this one was less of an erotic thriller and more of a what-the-heck-is-going-on-thriller."
Starring body doubles for Kensit and Sheedy
Darren Harrison | Washington D.C. | 12/13/2004
(2 out of 5 stars)

"Whatever happened to Eighth Wonder singer Patsy Kensit after she appeared in the high voltage, high energy thriller `Lethal Weapon 2'? Well, she went on to appear in a number of okay pictures (the acclaimed `Twenty-One' and the sweet romantic comedy `Does This Mean We're Married') and some truly terrible TV-movie-type fodder such as `Kill Cruise.'
Unfortunately, this crass production falls into the latter camp and, despite some good talent and a serviceable script, the movie is betrayed and let down with an overabundance of (blatently obvious) body-double nudity (that would seem more in place in a soft porn production) and a (supposidly) "surprise twist' that is telegraphed early in the movie.
Kensit plays the lesbian girlfriend Alex, to Alley Sheedy's motivational speaker character, who persuades her girlfriend to escape the big city after she is brutally attacked. The two seek the solitude on an island and tension arises with the arrival of an injured man, a violent storm that knocks out the phone lines and ferry services to the mainland and the almost voyeuristic fascination with the girls displayed by the local sheriff.
Kensit was the reason why I picked up this movie, that and the promise of an okay suspense thriller, but her talent is once again squandered in a movie that fails to deliver any real tension."
IT'S NOT THAT BAD!

(5 out of 5 stars)

"OKAY IT'S BEEN A WHILE SINCE I'VE SEEN THIS BUT I DO REMEMBER THAT I LIKED IT. IT'S ABOUT A LESBIAN COUPLE WHO GO OFF TO AN ISLAND FOR A VACATION AND THE TROUBLE THEY ENCOUNTER WHILE THERE. THERE ARE MANY PLOT TWISTS AND TURNS AND THERE IS A SURPRISE TWIST AT THE END THAT WAS A VERY NICE TOUCH. IT KEPT ME GUESSING ALL THE WAY THROUGH THE MOVIE AS TO JUST WHAT WAS REALLY GOING ON AND WHO WAS REALLY DECEIVING AND BACK-STABBING WHOM. IT REALLY IS WORTH A WATCH. IT'S NOT THAT BAD!!!!"
