    If you're bored, and want to watch a mediocre horror flick then I guess you could rent this. In all honesty, it's a lame movie. It has a decently attractive cast, seems like it could be fun because it's on a beautiful beach in brazil, but nope. It's a huge letdown. As a reference... It's no where near as good as hostel, even if you disliked hostel.

    Yet another unoriginal, unintelligent horror film for this year. Ive never seen a premise like this before.... oh wait yes I have, it's called Surviving the Game and this is just as bad. The only difference is that I don't get to laugh at Gary Busey in turistas, I get to laugh at everyone's performance.

    If you forget to use your brain while watching "Turistas", perhaps you can excuse director John Stockwell for wasting your time and the writer Michael Arlen Ross for trying to insult your intelligence.

    I think, the director had a really good idea with this movie, but he didn't make a good plot. I mean, he could show more of what happened with them after they were taken, and make it interesting with more action. The only thing you'll see on this movie is people taking, you'll never see a coherent action, because the director "tried" to make it feel like an action movie, but the result wasI think, the director had a really good idea with this movie, but he didn't make a good plot.

If you want to see a really bad movie, please see "Turistas" (for me it was like another "Saw" sequel) Expand

  1. There's only one surgery scene, but it's the heart (and kidneys) of Turistas. The rest -- especially the incoherent action -- falls well below the mark set by the last Americans Abroad torture-porn picture, "Hostel."

    Turistas eventually bogs down in an underlit mess.
  3. The movie, with the exception of that lone squirmy surgery scene, is "Hostel" without sadism, thrills, or funky severed-limb F/X. It quickly turns into a very dull escape thriller.
