too dark and too much blah blah
6 June 2010 | by See all my reviews

I don't know what to think of this flick. Sometimes it's entertaining and sometimes it is really boring. Let me say that the beginning of the movie wasn't really something that would keep you hooked on your television screen. I won't tell much but when a guy jumps out of an airplane with an amount of money, well, the others have to track him down. But it's all done in an uninteresting way. A lot of stupid talking on walkie talkies about, hey man, we are going to find you but they keep on saying it. Once the scarecrows comes alive we get a bit of gory effects. Decapitation and other atrocious things happen but it is all a bit too late. For me it was all a bit too much talking in stead of real horror. I must agree, the effects used were good but couldn't save the movie. And one big mistake was that it all was shot at night. The whole movie. The movie that many likes, sorry, for me it wasn't what I suspected.
