What a disaster !!!
22 February 2002 | by (Warsaw,Poland) – See all my reviews

I watched it once about 8 years ago or more, i am a sci-fi fan thats why i rented it. To this day i havent seen a worst movie. Ridiculous plot, lousy acting, crappy Ed Wood-style special (d)effects. Steer clear away from this.
