Blackwater: Directed by Bill Rogers, Bill Schreiber, R. Douglas Zipperer. With Georgia Chris, Amy Simon, McCayne Blomberg, Jenny Robinson. Four young women tourists are hunted by ruthless woodsmen in the Florida Everglades.

“Not to be confused with all the other films of the same name (Including one thats just come out this year) Blackwater tells the story of 4 girls who go on an adventure camping in the everglades. Things turn sour however when they run afoul of a trio of rednecks.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe first 50% of the movie is character development which is adequate but does drag a tad. The cast are just about competent and the sights are beautiful, both of the everglades and its stunning wildlife.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eWhen things actually begin to take place they feel rushed, there is very little actual development and the threat feels rather lacking. At no real point do these women seem in much danger so it all comes across quite trivial.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe rednecks themselves are lifeless, the action is non-existent and the whole thing comes across rather neutered. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eShoulda coulda woulda been better.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe Good:u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eSome really nice sceneryu003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eEverything is just about passableu003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe Bad:u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eVery tame stuff considering the subject matteru003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eVery slow buildu003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eNot exactly what the cover suggests it isu003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThings I Learnt From This Movie:u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eIf you want me to care about a character, donu0026#39;t make them a hunteru003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eRednecks need a union, they are presented so badly in movies!”
