Club Med was never like this. Reporter Michael Caine is captured, tortured and otherwise degraded by a band of seafaring Hell's Angels who've been plundering and sinking ships in the so-called Bermuda Triangle. Plausibility, coherence and taste are also deep-sixed in this 1980 film abomination based on Peter Benchley's best-seller.
