How bad can it be?
19 August 2004 | by (Grand Rapids, MI) – See all my reviews

I've never written a movie review before, but this flick has inspired me to try to help others.

I forced myself to watch this movie, fully expecting it to be one of the worst movies I'd ever seen. It was even worse than I imagined.

Erik Estrada is a rich man trying to fix a soccer game. To do this, he has a team of goons, with no acting ability, utilizing all the usual coercion tricks on the players. One player stands up to battle evil. You know the drill.

I must give credit, though: somehow the folks making this movie have managed to combine utter predictability with a total lack of reality.

The acting is absolutely horrible. The script is trite, predictable, boring and loaded with gaping holes. The scene transitions are abrupt and confusing. I kept thinking my DVD player was malfunctioning.

I could go on, but this movie simply doesn't warrant as much time as I've already dedicated to it. I feel bad ripping it like this - it could have been somebody's school project, after all - but the fact is it was released onto video, and therefore opened up for criticism. I've seen many movies which were never intended to be blockbusters, but this one sinks to an all time low.

If you have an opportunity to see this one, run away. Run as fast as you can.
