4.0 out of 5 stars Good, action-packed - But product details are wrong. October 14, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video
The product details are so wrong.
The man returning to find his girl engaged is not 'Jim Halsey', but is 'Jeff Lundy'. And he does not do stuff to get his girl back - quite the opposite - after his first attempts to change her mind, he does all he can to keep his distance so as not to hurt his good friend, Betty's now-fiance', Gus. The title 'Mr. Reckless' doesn't really encompass the movie; but does get a bit of a show in a few spots.
There are a few funny sides within the program, and a few too-serious subjects presented - one is gambling that gets a hold of Betty's father, Hugo, and causes serious effects. Another is anger and revenge and causes danger and death because of wrong actions; the jealousy shows a real bad side.
There is some sadness because of the wrong actions. [I wish they had come up with a different scenario for one part of the ending, but I won't say which one, or it would give away the ending.]
Some real-life situations dealt with and some tough action, along with those few humorous sides, makes a pretty good movie. 'Jeff' does a good, strong job, I think, and presents a side you might want to meet again. :)
Family can watch it - it has no offensive language - it is kept pretty 'clean' [outside of the 'oil spills' :) ha ha! and hard-working dirt on the guys!] but probably more for 'over 12' and 'adult' preference, mainly because it would probably not keep younger interest and especially not little kids (an adult could explain the wrong actions of some of the people and how it can be so harmful to others and themselves.)
Worth watching. Glad I discovered it on the Amazon list. :) (Amazon, you need better 'proof-reviewers' to really 'watch' the movies before they write the details! I may not know all the actors/cast, but I am glad I watch the program for myself sometimes and not always take the 'details' word-perfect!)

1.0 out of 5 stars It was not good. Not at all July 8, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
It was not good. Not at all. Wrong on so many levels. I didn't like the main characters in the beginning and I hated them at the end.
