The story follows Turk Henry; a mega platinum rock star who's married to a supermodel and rich beyond his wildest dreams. Whilst on holiday, his wife is mysteriously abducted by a group of renegade, ship-less pirates. With little assistance from local authorities Turk is forced to embark on a mission to rescue his wife using life skills better suited to playing bass, playing the field, and partying. He is forced to navigate through deadly jungles and take on ruthless bandits in this truly hilarious, action-packed romp. From director Simon West (Con Air, The Expendables 2), writer Toby Davies (That Mitchell and Webb Look, Murder in Successville) and starring Olga Kurylenko (Quantum of Solace, Oblivion, Seven Psychopaths), Ben Cura (Marcella), Aisling Loftus (Mr Selfridge, War & Peace) and Antonio Banderas (Desperado, Once Upon a Time in Mexico, The Expendables 3).



  • Gun Shy and substance dry!

    By BrownApple1
    Awful pointless vulgar tripe. Idiotic story line only trumped by our stupidity renting it at all. Don't waste your money or your time, you'll be left astounded by the rating and wishing for a refund! If your after a good solid comedy, drama and a bit of romance I'd rather recommend Elsa & Fred which turned out sublime, a real gem!

    Worst film I have ever seen. Scrip and acting is shocking
  • Future cult classic?

    By StyloWayfarer
    Who knew Antonio was this camp? Gives Depp's Sparrow a run for his money. A lot of laughs and great fun!
  • Simply excellent

  • A Rollicking Good Film !

    By Zany Jim
    Non stop action from Antonio Banderas, some good tunes and lots of laughs. Simon West gives a fine behavoural study of Lamas in the wilds of Chilli - move over David Attenborough.
  • 💥Banderas with a bang! 💥

    By Fred v Zed
    Such fun to see Banderas in a really amusing role and looking like he is enjoying ever second! Also loved the surprise appearance of David Mitchel. All together a great watch with the possible makings of a cult classic...
  • Brilliant!

    By Benlevine101
    Absolutle genius. Antonio is hilarious, the one liners beyond brilliant and Olga shines like the starlet she is. What's even more hilarious is that the 'critics' completely miss the entire irony of the movie and fail to see the hilarity behind. A must watch for when you want that stomach twisting laugh.

    Watched the film by chance - it’s great, uncomplicated fun. Would recommend if you enjoy straight forward comedies. As other reviews have said, some good music too.
