Like the Godfather, but without the good bits
11 April 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This film appears to have been made up as they went along, there being so little evidence of any form of script. It seemed to consist mainly of montage. I consider the three hours I spent watching this film as one of my least profitable activities ever. (The film actually only runs for one and a half hours; it just seemed like three) The only bright spot was a brief view of a naked breast and even this was probably only put in to raise it's rating to 15 (Australia). This is one of these films that is simply just bad. Not bad enough to be memorable, like "Plan 9 from Outer Space" or "Manos,the Hands of Fate", just badly made and boring.
