The premise of the movie is great - amazing really. Fidel Castro ending up a Cuban "balsero" in Miami? The possibilities are endless...or so I thought until I saw the movie.
First, the movie is billed as a black-comedy but someone forgot to tell the makers that they forgot to add comedy when making the movie.
Second, there is really no point to the story. It had a beginning (sort of), but no middle, and no end. I kept expecting the story to develop, but it never did. I kept expecting something funny or dark to occur, but nothing ever did.
Do yourself a favor and skip this movie because you will never get those two hours of your life back.
