My only comment is.......
9 December 2004 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

After only seeing this movie recently, I am totally embarrassed by the Australian Film Industry (which I think has since not only disowned this film but also disputes that fact that it was even made here). What were they thinking - or maybe they weren't.

This is a total mish mosh of a film, that I am sure has a plot in there somewhere, but I failed to see it.

The only consolation was watching yummy Bruce Boxleitner. But even that didn't make up for this disaster of a film. What was he thinking when he agreed to make this???

2.5 stars is way to generous for this movie. Maybe a 1. Definitely an F.
