In 1959, US sailors stash a load of money on an island not far from Cuba. Flash forward tothe present, and one of those sailors (Daniel J. Travanti!) and his wife (poor Faye Dunaway)convince John Laughlin (the son of one of the other sailors) and his wife Kim Cattrall to sail outto get this cash. Naturally, all is not what it seems. Travanti is badly miscast as the villain, andthe plot takes so long to get in gear that you have plenty of time to realize this makes nosense.< ...p>
The music is very 80s in a painful way, but the sound quality is fine. The environmentalsound effects (rain, wind, seagulls) aren’t half bad either. Some nice left-right effects. Thedialogue does distort now and then, and the mix is merely 2.0.
Another fullscreen transfer, though the film was direct-to-video. I wasn’t aware of badcropping, anyway. The picture is grainy, however, sometimes extremely so, and there arespeckles now and then. The colours and blacks aren’t bad, though.
The movie is bad, the transfer no prize, but the package stopped just short of boring me.
