Embarrassing! Awkward scripted acting, WEAK effects, STUPID plot. Production had a $60,000 budget. I think they pocketed $59,999 of it. Bad Sean Connery impression. The token âbad guyâ tries to be a hard @$$, but rather comes off as a tie shifting car selling rapist. The âheroâ canât pronounce Hawaiian words, which might be a little important, sinceâ¦well, ITâS A MOVIE BASED ON HAWAIIAN LEGEND. The tag line states that this movie was Hawaiiâs number one box office hit . That sets the bar low. The entire ancient Hawaiian monarchy collectively slapped their foreheads and took a long roll in their graves. All this movie was good for was mocking.
