Turistas review

I first heard about this movie a couple of months ago and while the story seemed pretty interesting I decided to skip it after I saw the bad ratings on Rotten and IMDB. However, last week I read some positive reviews about this movie on a forum I frequently visit so I decided to check out if the movie is really that bad as the critics write.

Turistas is about Alex, his sister Bea and her friend Amy. They are backpacking in Brazil but their vacation turns sour when the bus they’re on gets an accident and leaves them stranded in the middle of nowhere. They meet a couple of British and Australian tourists and discover a beautiful beach with a beach bar.

They decided to stay there for a while but after the first night they discover that it isn’t as pretty as it seems.. Some parts of Turistas’ story feel a lot like Hostel, but instead of in Slovakia this movie is set in Brazil with paradisiacal beaches, rain forests and underwater caves.


This movie isn’t too bad but don’t expect too much from it. I give it a 6.5/10, perhaps that’s a bit too generous but I have to admit that the movie didn’t really bore and that it features quite a lot of pretty babes.

  1. 6.5 lol that is very generous. I hated that movie lol I wouldn’t give that higher than a 4.5. It was a very lame not scary unsuspensful movie.
