Ubiquitous B-movie bad guy Richard Lynch is clearing the Brazilian rain forest. Nativeprincess Laura Herring (or, as she is now known, Laura Elena Harring) arrives in LA hoping toconvince the chairman of the evil multinational to halt the destruction. She falls in love with thechairman’s son, and lot of dancing ensues. Utterly inane. Harring went on to much better thingsin Mulholland Dr.
The 2.0 sound is decent but unspectacular….The music is okay, but won’t bring the housedown. There are some decent environmental sound effects. The quality of the dialogue isvariable, with some odd moments where the vocals shift from the front speakers to the rear for noreal reason.
The picture quality is initially catastrophic. The picture is grainy and washed out, and thecolours are soporifically bland. Once the credit sequence is over, things improve. The coloursdeepen, the contrast becomes stronger, and the picture overall becomes quite sharp. And it is,after all, in 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen. But what a dreadful first few minutes.
None barring trailers for Center Stage, Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle andDance with Me. The menu is basic.
Okay technically (just), but the movie itself should really make you run a mile the otherway.
