Brief Synopsis – After receiving a letter from his ex-fiance, a policeman travels to a remote island to investigate the disappearance of her daughter.
My Take on it – After not enjoying the original version of this film at all, I decided to see how a more modern version would do things.
I’ve never been the biggest fan of Nicholas Cage and he shows once again how lack-luster an actor he can be; his performance is extremely bland and lacks any kind of believeable emotion.
This film is not any better than the original because it’s essentially identical besides the fact that it’s been modernized.
The one thing I liked more about this version is that the story is a bit more comprehendable than the original one
Bottom Line – Terrible film that is only slightly better and more comprehendable than the original. Cage is once again his bland self. Not worth the effort for so many reasons. Skip it!
MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – There is a “Missing” sign in the police station with a photo of Edward Woodward’s character from The Wicker Man (1973). (From IMDB)
Rating – Razzie Worthy
