Review by Anonymous (posted on 7-May-2007)

I watched this movie many years ago due to the fact that there were deaths involved in the filming of the jet boat scene. My uncle(Bill Clark) was playing the roll of a women driving the jet boat so he had to wear a dress, this making the use of a live jacket impossible & being a very well known jet boat driver in Queenstown, New Zealand, he himself i guess thought what could go wrong. An unfortunate accident happened and Bill and 1 of his friends perished. The movie itself is a great and any one who likes action/adventure movies this is a good one.
