Worse than a zero rating
15 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I worked on this film as an extra. Like the other reviewer, I worked long hours and was used a lot in the filming. While I am in the movie, most of my long hours ended up on the cutting room floor. If you can stand to watch this movie, I'll be in the news room scene - one minute in a suit and the next second in a white shirt. Same scene, but differently dressed. I only appear in the news room.

Like the other reviewer I had hoped this would be a cool movie to watch and I tell my friends I was in a particular scene. I too was horrified by just how bad this movie is. The only good thing that came out of this experience was I met a girl (a extra too - a red head in the news room scene typing) that I dated for quite sometime.

-5 (negative) Stars from me.
