| Christopher Plummer as a "Cajun" pirate ......................
Christopher Plummer sporting an annoying "Cajun" accent, plunders sailboats in the Gulf of Mexico. This modern day pirate has a demented rapist nephew, Jonathan Banks, for his crew. The cat and mouse game between Plummer and his nautical prey is what "Desperate Voyage" depends on. I should mention, anyone the least bit susceptible to sea sickness might want to avoid this film, as the entire production never touches land. This really is minimalist entertainment, with some vessel ramming, to occasionally liven things up. The remainder is padded with relationship problems between one of the sailboat couples. Not bad, but rather slow moving at times. - MERK
