This movie must have been a cover for a crime
24 April 2007 | by prosper1See all my reviews

There is something about"springtime for Hitler" about this movie. Script, art direction, acting, lighting, directing, casting were the worst I have ever seen. Tghe rationale here must have been they made a load of dough from investors and kept the money or they were smuggling coke in the dailies....

THe whale in the opening sequence and the actual local on the southern part of the Baja are the only thing of interest in this film

The box well represented in BIG BOLD letters that this is Peter O'Tooles last film role... which may be cause to exhume and see if he committed suicide after viewing this POS
