Terrible
12 October 2002 | by (Paris, France) – See all my reviews

Forget visual effects, they are... well... Let's say there is no visual effect. The story ? Forget the story, even scenarist has forgotten the story. Acting is not convincing anybody. As we say in France : "Circulez, y'a rien à voir" ("Go away, there's nothing to see").

The only positive point : it was one of the very rare try for a french fantastic movie.
