    With Turistas, Stockwell dives head-first into a veritable riptide of churning, vicious exploitation cinema, and the result is surprisingly effective.
  2. 63
    Turistas is not a slasher film -- not conventionally. Released by Fox's new teen division, it's the latest aquatic titillation from John Stockwell, the man who also brought us "Blue Crush" and the shockingly good "Into the Blue."
  3. 50
    Starts out as an effective little horror movie before devolving into an incoherent mess during its final 30 minutes.
  4. It all begins to fall apart around the midway point, before completely unraveling into a confused, murky mess.
  5. 38
    Turistas has mastered the international language: stupidity.
  6. These people are so stupid that they make us think, well, wait a second: Maybe those livers and kidneys could be put to better use.
  7. 10
    Turistas fails in almost every way a movie like this can.

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

    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. Expand
