Was this movie actually a covert way to film the backlot destruction?
28 January 2009 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Is it possible, that as money was so tight at what was left of MGM, this was used as funding for the filming of the destruction of the sets, as the historical importance was too much to not record for posterity? One final historical record, of a studio destruction. I'm not aware of the demolition of half of Elstree or MGM British being filmed.

The film just screams that the meagre budget is being stretched, by the last few people left in the gigantic studio complex.

Think of the way you feel when your company is shutting down, or when you have to clearout a loved ones house before you have to sell it, after them living there for decades. This is the feeling in this movie...
