what a load of rubbish
3 December 2005 | by (london) – See all my reviews

At the time this film was made British cinema audiences were on a steep nosedive from 1 billion in the late 4o0s to around 350 million when this pile of junk was made.The only idea that the film industry seemed to have in those days was to close as many cinemas as they could rather than make decent films.They were just floundering around and the fact that this film ever got made shows why.If when you next in your local High Street look where the supermarkets are.They are tombstones to the great cinemas on that same spot.Cinemas that were closed by films such as these.This film has one thing going for it,it is so bad it is actually watchable for that reason.
