A mediocre survival thriller.
Some elements work, others we have seen a thousand times before.
A mediocre thriller with barely anything above middling basic stalk and chase fodder...
An uneven but entertaining look at the animal in all of us.
Taking the bratty teen genre out of the sitcom and into the African wilds minus Africans, doesn't do either much good in this Euro-safari female action hero thriller. Touching on surviving a surly stepchild as much as assorted villains along the way.
While the characters can be irritating and problematic at times, they are not unrealistic.
The real act of survival is making it through Heatstroke all the way through to the end.
A cheeseball B-movie about a woman and a girl combating arms dealers in the African desert that fails to generate suspense, excitement, or even unintentional B-movie laughs.
Making the most of its shooting location, but little else, Heatstroke generates middling thrills with its underwritten, overfamiliar tale of survival.
Strangely unadventurous, dependent on cliché to connect the dots, refusing the invitation to create a genuine nail-biter in an exotic location. The feature isn't directed, it's merely survived.
Straight manhunt-in-the-African desert genre picture with few surprises, save for the fact that the hunted are women
