Anyone contemplating suicide this movie ought to do it !
5 May 2006 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

This film was so bad it was barely watchable.

Unless of course you're a fan of either Patrick Swayzes bother, Don or of a sometimes shirtless (and rather muscular) David Heavener. then don't watch this movie.

I could not concentrate on the movie properly, no not because of Davids werewolf pectorals, was Heaveners hairy chest really that disturbing? well yes it was, but no that's not the reason I was distracted. Even though surely someone with that much hair on their chest should also have a Uni - brow.

The only thing I could think about while watching this movie, besides 'what the hell is Martin Landau doing in this low budget piece of hooey Was, when is it going to ever end?

Yet for some reason I couldn't put my finger on the stop button on my DVD remote, had I finally gone stark raving bonkers? I purchased this movie as part of a 10 DVD Thriller Pack, TE He He Thriller LOL NOT! It cost ten dollars in New Zealand I can now see why. Available from The Warehouse NZ or Aussie, these were put out by flashback entertainment.

There were so many goofy mistakes about this film. The stunt man who could be seen clearly falling off a building an onto a foam mat in the wrong place on film, which didn't match up to the dead character on the ground, also the way it was cut allowed viewers to see the thick mat as it bounces up on one edge. The cheesy over acted and sometimes underacted dialog. Isolated location as though it was filmed in a ghost town, or was it someones back yard out in the country, I couldn't tell. But wait that's not all there's more, actors (yes they had enough money for about four or five of these, just not enough money for any props or decent makeup or clothing) Seriously I am shocked that this was filmed in the 90's.

Judging by the clothing I thought it was made in the early 80's. The actors reaction time to every line said by another actor is so slow it's as though they were reading their lines off of cue cards. Or they were having a nap between each line, to be kind Yes it has a story, but this could have been done a lot better.

I hear apparently the star of this tragic piece of trash, Mr David Heavener is not only a film producer, director and actor, but a martial artist and now Christian music composer/performer. How talented, shame it couldn't save his movie. maybe if he made a movie Titled 'kicking ass for the lord' he would do better? or Jujitsu for Christians. Or grow back his beard and become a George Michael impersonator, oh I am so not nice.

Unfortunately for Mr Heavener he simply couldn't have made a worse film, even his George Michael Designer stubble and sizable biceps weren't enough to keep even his girlie members of the Audience happy.

At the end of this film I was still left questioning 'what in the hell is Martin Landau doing in this film?'

To be kind I have to say one thing about Mr Heaveners attempt. If any talent scout was watching this film Heavener would definitely be someone they would remember. He's the one who made that really bad film back in the 90's.

Seriously this is Definitely one to avoid. Not to hire, purchase or even watch!!! not even as part of a cheap DVD pack. The only time I would recommend purchasing this film is if you have to get a gift for someone you really don't like!

It should come with a health warning on it: WARNING Anyone contemplating suicide, this movie ought to do it! :-)

Enough said I think you get the point Its a shame cos I think he might actually be able to act under better conditions.
