      Peter P This B-movies is a real little gem. Stylishly filmed, fast paced, cool soundtrack and a lively perfomance by the cast. Most of all by it's lead Carey Lowell (on of the best Bond girls), she really carries this film. The south american locations creates an adventurous mood and the comedy elements makes this a fun ride. At the end are some cool scenes that will leave you in a good mood. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 05/19/23 Full Review Audience Member Maxine (Carey Lowell) is the kind of person who will do anything for her friends, including her roommate Michelle, who gets her involved in all sorts of hijinks over a stolen religious idol, The Crucible Of San Luca, which ends up getting her kidnapped and meeting a mercenary named Reno Mars (Charles Rocket). Sure, it's another trip through Romancing the Stone. The difference is that it's directed by Albert Pyun, who also made Dangerously Close, Vicious Lips, Radioactive Dreams, Cyborg, Dollman and many more. That means that it works hard to not be fully normal. There's also a cast that genre fans will enjoy spotting, like Thom Matthews (Tommy Jarvis!), Linda Kerridge from Fade to Black, Norbert Weisser (who is in several Pyun movies), Nicholas Guest (Todd, the put-up next door neighbor in National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation), Galyn Görg (Cain's lover in RoboCop 2) and even Courtney Cox. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member This is an okay action movie. The bad guys are pretty bad at their job, though. Most of the time the main character goes back and forth between kidnappers, and it gets tiring. There are some interesting twists to the story near the end, but they're not too surprising. And the actors are okay too.
