Mercenaries capture a large motor yacht en route for Australia. They believe the yacht's owner to be dead, but he's very much alive and hell-bent on retrieving his craft. Gary Busey, Belinda Bauer and Ray Sharkey star.
Plot. A married couple have problems and in the process of a divorce. The guy, Ted, meets a woman, Laura, who is interested in him aswell as the yacht Ted has to sell. The deal is to take the boat to the buyer so Ted takes his 2 young children and Laura on the trip. The boat is hijacked, Ted falls into the sea wounded, the kids are in the hands of the bad guys and we see laura is part of the gang. The bad guys are involved with some kind of revolution. Ted is played by Gary Busey and the pirates leader is played by Ray Sharkey. Busey seems to play intense characters and here he does that well. It's not a bad action film as we see Ted survive and with his wife travel the world in search of their kids. It's a bit slow in places but overall entertaining enough. The violence isn't too brutal or graphic and there is a fair bit of it and Sharkey is excellent as a total pyscho. UK release. Picture quality is a little dark in places but not too bad.
