Elevator Pitch A woman with a past which includes martial arts training marries well, and she and her rich husband go to a Carribean island on honeymoon. But a zip line accident results in the husband being taken hostage, and his wife with the task of finding him, abandoned by his family and obstructed by the police.
Content There is a lot of martial arts and other violence, some of it quite unpleasant. A lot of local colour, apparently in Puerto Rico. A bit of limited and non- revelatory sex. No nudity (although the eagle eyed content advisory apparently saw a breast).
A View I count the producers sometimes. There were 23 for this film, but even so it apparently never made general release. I liked the director’s use of hand held and other types of camera, and enjoyed the barrios of Puerto Rico. The critics did not like it, but it is a fairly painless way of passing a couple of hours if you like action movies.
