Audience Reviews for Siren of the Tropics
I didn't care for this movie, it's a silly romance story, and I'm sure loads of people will think it's pretty racist by today's standards. There are bits of drama and excitement here and there, but nothing that really made me care about the story or characters. Overall, it's not so good.More
