Bill C’s Review – 3.5 out of 5
Graceland is a very good thriller set in the Phillipines. When the daughter of the chauffeur of a politician mistakenly gets kidnapped the chauffeur will do whatever it takes to get his daughter returned safely. He needs to deal with the kidnappers, police (who suspect him of being involved) and his boss (to getthe ransom paid).
The movie deals with the seedy, corrupt side of Filipino society – child prostitution, corrupt politicians and police. The story is well written with good plot twists and things are not always as they seem.
This one might be tough to find in theaters (it’s no longer in Austin) but is worthwhile if you can find it.
