Rubbish
27 February 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I watched this today and am still trying to decide whether the makers deliberately set out to make as rubbish a film as possible in the hope that it might be considered a cult classic. This has nothing going for it. Dire acting, dreadful special effects, laughable model aircraft and comic action. If they spent $18m on this then it must have been on bribes to get it released in the 1st place !!!!. All the actors, some of whom should really have known better, perform so badly it made me wonder if they actually realised how rubbish this is and gave up immediately. If you want to laugh at a truly awful film that shows how to waste money producing dross then this is something you will enjoy. It is just about the worst film I have ever seen.
