Slipped OUT of Derek William's Crack, more likely (No Offense Mate...)
16 September 2013 | by (Sunny Southern California, USA) – See all my reviews

Sorry about the summary, but I couldn't resist after seeing the title of Mr. Williams review :)

AND, it does quite accurately describe the quality (cough...) of the film. Whew, where do I start. Well, most of this has been pretty well covered by most sane reviewers here. Actually, in all fairness, I DO think that the movie started fairly well, with the exception of the horrible acting in the board room (Hmmm, that WAS the start; maybe I mean right AFTER that...) Anyway, the visuals and sets are decent, but the acting, writing, and direction leave quite a bit to be desired. As a matter of fact, after this film, you pretty much end up with a VERY strong desire to see a GOOD film!

The supposed 'Drama' that pads this movie is really pretty bad; if they had just kept to suspense and constant, mindless Action, they would have been FAR better served. Painful dialog; even a veteran like Malcom McDowell looks (and sounds) like he'd REALLY rather be somewhere else and I don't blame him.

Basically, the setup and story are fine for a standard 'B' Sci Fi film. But, as I said, with the exception of the better than average visuals, the progression of the 'story', such as it is, the screenplay, and particularly the direction water down and ruin whatever there MAY have been that could have been salvaged.

I guess this was Evil Ed's last 'normal' role, if you will excuse the term. Dang that guy looks so damn weathered now it's really sad. But, that was just about the ONLY highlight (if you could REALLY call it that) of the film was seeing good ol' Evil Ed in action. Now, if he (and bloody EVERYONE ELSE) had had decent things to say, it certainly would have been a LOT better.

Poor writing...

Poor execution...

Poor story development...

Poor acting...

Uh, I think it's safe to say... NOT recommended.
