Dead Tides A tough, honorable former Navy SEAL gets more than he bargained for, but more than he can handle, when he accepts a job captaining a ship for a mysterious, sexy woman who turns out to be the wife of a ruthless drug kingpin.
NOT YOUR USUAL RODDY PIPER MOVIE
Dead Tides This is not your usual Roddy Piper action movie. He plays a multi-dimensional character who has a pretty messed up life. His “girlfriend” can’t decide between him and his former buddy, Scott. Of course, Roddy can’t seem to decide if he wants to settle down with her. Otherwise, he has a pretty simple life running boats for sale from point A to point B for people. Simple until Tawny Kitaen and her psycho husband Juan Fernandez come into his life.
Roddy shows his romantic, gentle side with both his girlfriend and Tawny. But, be assured that there is plenty of bone crushing, shoot-’em-up, fist fighting action in this flick.
If you would like a different Piper, this is a good show.
Hey, he will never get an Oscar for acting, but Roddy showed some humility, a bit of sensitivity and played a romantically confused boat skipper guy that wasn’t the usual killing machine he normally plays.
Best part of this film, besides the nice ocean photography, is my main lunatic/drug dealer (will he EVER escape these kind of parts), the legendary Juan Fernandez. Don’t think I have ever seen Juan in a film without an Uzi in one hand. This guy always plays these psycho/GQ smoov ultra violent gangsters. The type that will smile at you while he’s sticking a knife in sideways. The idea of he and Kitaen as a married drug-running couple was laughable. The Aussie guy from “JAG” (Trevor something) plays his usual brute (who hated Piper for being with his ex), but chills out at the end. Roddy ends up with no one at the conclusion, except his boat and the water, feeling stupid for having done this drivel of a flick.
