Skip the trip: `Turistas' jams in skin, gore and little else

Review D-

December 01, 2006|By Chris Kaltenbach | Chris Kaltenbach,Sun Movie Critic

Turistas shouldn't do much for the Brazilian tourist industry, but that may be the least of the many reasons to avoid this study in knuckleheaded mayhem and exploitative, brain-dead filmmaking.

Truth is, there are so many things wrong with this movie, from its story to its camerawork to its arbitrary and utterly unsatisfying ending, that it might be easier to elaborate on what the movie does right.

Turistas (Fox Atomic) Starring Josh Duhamel, Melissa George, Miguel Lunardi. Directed by John Stockwell. Rated R. Time 89 minutes.
