19 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I think some people hate this movie because they expected way to much out of it then what it really is. I know this movie isn't worth a 10, its not even close but this movie wasn't made to be remembered as a Godfather type movie. It was made in my opinion for just for laughs though there's a few gory and scary scenes but thats what most people miss about this movie and the whole series. It wasn't made to win all kinds of awards but as a movie to sit back and enjoy yourself, and enjoy a awesome villain.( the best in my opinion) If you watch this movie with a mind set that its not going to be great, you'll enjoy it a lot more.
