As always The Asylum makes sure that their films grab your attention from the beginning so as expected there was a good amount of action right away. Including but not limited to, pirates taking over an oil tanker and demand ten million dollars and they have a bomb. Adrian Sinbad (Patrick Muldoon) the owner of the tanker jumps in a helicopter with a couple others and heads to his ship with the ransom money and a gun. His helicopter crashes and his tanker is taken down by a sea monster, but that’s the least of his problem. Sinbad along with other survivors including a pirate end up on an evil island and they’re all going to die, according to the pirate who they tied up. Poor pirate, the island is sinking (which isn’t an island) and he’s still got his hands tied , but don’t worry in the next scene he’s swimming with his hands free so I must of missed something.
It’s a fun adventure and everyone works together like the Wonder Pets to survive. Loa (Sarah Desage) and Gemma (Kelly O’Leary) work with Sinbad to trip a Cyclops and cleanly have it land on a sharp rock. I was hoping to hear them sing “What’s gonna work…teeeeamwork”.
One of their adventures has them meeting some trippy half naked women with leaves as pasties. The men are put in a trance just by looking at the girls. Really it was no different than a gentlemen’s club. Darn good thing Loa was there to save them and drag them out before all their money was gone or they’re sacrificed…whichever.
My personal favorite scene was the big shoot out. About one hour in and it was tons of fun. EVERYONE is shooting their automatic weapons and EVERYONE is running through the middle of the raining bullets and I think only a few people were hit. I was hoping to hear some circus music. This happens in most movies with shoot outs so you have to embrace it and enjoy it and laugh.
After all the excitement and Sinbad carries out six of the seven tasks, the last one is dramatic and personal. Spoiler! Sinbad and Loa carry out the task and ride out into to the sunset on their rubber raft.
- “You fight like a champion” “you fight like a pregnant dog”…..Where is there pregnant dog fighting? That’s pathetic.
- Watch Sinbad’s facial expression throughout the film, he cracked me up. There were quite few subtle WTF looks or this person is crazy.
- If you have a mother pterodactyl in front of you, why would you be nosey and check out what’s making the noise in her nest? Sorry he got what you deserved.
- Before Sinbad scales down into the pit of hell Loa asks if he needs anything. They give each other the chicka bow wow look.
