Impact Point Reviews
Melissa Keller and Kayla Ewell trained several hours per day in order to perform proper beach volleyball techniques for the film. They deserve praise for doing a great job. This did not prevent the director from shooting a scene in which they pass the ball with their hands 5 or 6 times in a row. (You pass with your forearms). They are great looking ladies though and Keller has a few rear nude shower scenes that show off her tan. Wow, Ive already resorting to reporting nudity in an effort to avoid completely dismissing this one.
If the writer and director put as much into the film as Keller and Ewell did training - this would have been one hell of a movie.
Unfortunately the movie is not about volleyball. If you like run of the mill TV crime dramas you won't mind this one. You also won't recommend it to your friends. There's nothing terrible about the cast or acting and nothing memorable either. Brian Austin Green phones in a decent Ray Liotta imitation as the stalker and the rest of the cast did their best with a mediocre script.
The "Training for" special feature is by far the best thing on the disc. It shows Keller and Ewell seriously training on the beach. That lasts about 5 minutes. If they had cut out the film and just showed the women training for 1 hour and 25 minutes - I would highly recommend the DVD. I can't recommend the other hour and 20 minutes.
If you are looking for a good movie about beach volleyball - it hasn't been made yet. Don't waste your time on "Sideout" or "Beach Kings" either. Sadly, this was the best of the three.
(2008) Impact Point
You know when a movie is bad when 1) it stars Brian Austin Green and 2) there's a lack of police competence! Brian Austin Green plays Holden, an obsessed stalker who always seems to be one step ahead of other officers investigating the case of other murdered people who're somehow linked and associated with a professional beach ball player Kelly(Melissa Keller). It's stupid beyond belief, especially when Holden pretends to be someone else, a professional sports reporter and then makes out with the leading actress and the police station don't even believe her aassuming this guy is imaginary even after a few people were already been killed, not even a sketch or DNA. They don't even check her homoe of residence for cameras and bugs!
inteligence complicate things... even the movie
I found it entertaining and watchable.
