The film had quite bad reviews at the time so when I got it on DVD the
plan was to fast forward to the naughty bits. But I found the film so
fascinating that I watched it from beginning to end. Being on a yacht
with Paty Kensit and Liz Hurley sounds like your idea of paradise?
Well, the washed out skipper of a yacht is duped into a four week trip
to Barbaidos with two young women who make a living stripping and
turning tricks in a decidedly seedy Gibraltar. Everything seems fine at
first but then the sexual tension rises, the skipper seems to have a
dark secret and paradise turns into hell. The film has an overtone of
aggressive sexuality from the very beginning that tries to assert
itself against the burned out skipper and does so in the end but with
disastrous consequences. I liked both the feel of the run down part of
Gibraltar and the clautstrophobic atmosphere on the yacht. Kensit is
great as the slut from hell who becomes more and more unstable
throughout the journey. Hurley seems to be the sensible one who turn
into a complete psychopath. While the acting is very good my only
misgiving about the film is that this change comes too suddenly and
does not really seem plausible. I'm not sure if secnes were cut from
the film but I certainly do not believe the rumour of a full frontal
nudity lesbian love scene (which wouldn't really make sense). The film
is also a showcase for Prochnow's acting talents which he unfortunately
squandered with later roles as stoch villain. Well worth watching

If I had to rank this in my top ten it would only come a close tenth. I didn't expect much and wasn't disappointed. I bought this quite simply to add to my ever growing Liz Hurley collection and I must say but for her, it certainly wouldn't get a very positive recommendation from me. For me, the film can be split into three stages. Stage one: a prolonged intro and slow development, which tries to set the scene and sees the group of three head off to sea - this takes up to 70 percent of the film. Stage two: an inexplicable change in the nature of characters and sped up pace to the film, which left me wondering if I'd missed a major part of the plot due to rash editting - this takes up 20 percent of the film. Finally Stage three: an almost incomprehensible twist at the end (which fades out to credits) and leaves you alone to make your own mind up as to what finally happened. I can only assume that the producer felt this would leave a lasting impression on the viewer, however for me it did the exact opposite. It left me frustrated and disappointed that any tention created was cushioned at the finale rather than exploited to better effect by some kind of explanation and conclusion.
The changes of pace, attitude of the main characters and unexplained jumps in the flow were as if the parts or final production were spliced together by different producers. Maybe the film had a change of director/producer during production and they made the best of a mixed bag? Finally on the negative side, the quality of the soundtrack throughout is quite simply poor. It starts quite quietly and continues throughout becoming more and more quiet. I thought it was my DVD player at fault, but it wasn't. However, now for the positives. A pretty Patsy Kensit puts in a good performance (even though her accent slips and she flies into tantrums every now and then). A young and quite simply stunningly beautiful Liz Hurley (as this is very soon after her modelling career), tries hard to grapple with her accent and shows some quality in her role, indicating she was a star in the making. For any serious tension film addicts though I'd give this a miss. In my opinion this is definitely one for the collectors and not for the viewers.

TOP 1000 REVIEWERon 29 April 2012
This movie is made on a low budget and is a pretty simple set up for a story but its not that bad, I only watched it because I love the sexy Patsy Kensit and Elizabeth Hurley and they are great together as a pair of common British bimbos who take an unusual turn when they go on a cruise with a stranger, this movie starts out as one thing and ends in a very unusual and unseen way, only get this if your a fan of the cast I would say its cheap and poorly acted but still fun non the less if you want a lot of Patsy time!!

Yes, I know this is a bad movie but for some reason it's got me hooked and I've watched it twice already. This may be because I'm trying to make sense of it, the plot really doesn't hang together even on long-distance inspection, but this is the closest Jurgen Prochnow has got to a boat since Das Boot and that alone gives it three stars in my book. Liz Hurley's accent wavers around from Essex girl to Sloan Ranger but she makes the most of the part, and Patsy Kensit does childish tantrums very well. It's a pity that's all she had to do because even done well they can get boring. Watching Prochnow handle the boat, and briefly Liz Hurley, is great fun but the twist at the end left me open-mouthed even the second time. I actually thought it must have been based on something that happened when the explanatory final paragraph came up, but now I'm back in the land of the sane I've got a feeling that isn't the case. Great fun though.

Kill Cruise [DVD] [1990] [US Import]

A good few years ago we would have described this as a "B Movie" and would not have been heartbroken to have entered the cinema half way through this poorly constructed and executed film. As a means of passing a wet night in a tatty B&B in Blackpool it may have some merit but as an addition to the collection of a serious movie buff it has little to offer.
