Not quite as bad as I read it would be, but pretty awful all the same. A horror pic from the writer and producers of Jaws, starring Michael Caine, and featuring a score by Ennio Morricone may sound like a great idea, but it's all a bit underbaked. In an unusually weak performance, Caine plays a journalist who drags his son along with him to investigate, who or what may be behind the disappearances... read more

"Ah... well when the film got to "The Island" I instantly lost interest and found better things to do with my time. So, can't rate and can't really say I watched it. Other then "It graced my dvd player for a few moments" :P Trust your instincts... avoid the film or read the book. Actually, I might avoid the book as well."

In an unusually weak performance, Caine plays a journalist who drags his son along with him to investigate, who or what may be behind the disappearances of over 600 ships over a period of three years in the Caribbean. In a fairly suspenseful and gory first half-hour, we witness raids and attacks by modern-day pirates on holiday boaters – axes are seen splitting heads open, throats are slit and crazy bearded men with flaming headwear are briefly revealed to be the culprits. Should make for a pretty scary film, yes? Well, no. Once Caine and his s” read more
