2.0 out of 5 stars
Dull and pointless
Verified purchase
Dull story, some poor acting (especially from Travolta himself) with special effects that would be considered laughably cheap and nasty 30 years ago.

Pointless biopic. Not sure what the aim was here. Assumably some exec decided life story + mob + fast boats = gold. Well sorry it doesn't, and this film is the proof.

Not great, not bad but watchable.
Verified purchase
This is not a great film but it is not bad and is watchable. It is a true story. There are some great locations and some speed boat action. John Travolta though is miscast. His acting is fairly wooden and sadly, he is too old for the role. As I said not great but not bad and watchable.

Extremely over rated.
Verified purchase
Very disappointing, been a Travolta fan for years but this made me view him with different eyes, B movie acting from most of the cast and poorly shot, felt like it was made with a very tight budget, with little effort.

Horrible Acting
Verified purchase
This film was terrible. Travolta's acting was very poor. The script was also very weak.

Stuck in the middle lane
Verified purchase
Felt like it might have got up to speed a few times but then seemed to go into limp mode. Should only be 3 stars but Mrs is a huge Travolta fan and she made me give it 4

High star rating is misleading - poor film
Verified purchase
Quite disappointed with this movie. The special effects looked like they were done in the 1980’s. I’ve always been a big fan of Travolta but couldn’t be bothered to watch the rest of the film half way through. The high star rating on Amazon is very misleading
