I read a few of the reviews who hated the movie. "how did this make it to Netflix?" - I can tell you how :)
It is entertaining. I read people complaining about how unrealistic the movies are. But those are the same kinds of people who love the Transformers series :) Not saying the movie is unrealistic, but let's face it. It's a movie, not a documentary.
There are a few plot holes, I give you that. But as a software engineer I just roll my eyes when someone 'hacks into a system' (again) in some movie for the sake of storytelling.
I do not need every single detail of the movie to be well researched. Which is why it is a movie.
So much about the disclaimer :) The movie itself is good. Main characters do a great job, it takes you around a few turns in the Caribbean - and the overall message of the movie is great. Family matters more than money.
I rate it 7/10 because of the things that other people actually hated the movie for. I liked it, I just consider those gaps in research 'flaws', not total failures :)
It is definitely worth watching. It is well cast and entertainingly written and filmed. It's far from a B-movie or a low-budget production.
Whoever calls this low-budget doesn't know the first thing about production value.
