So bad, it's not only good, it's great
3 July 2004 | by (LA, CA) – See all my reviews

If you are as big a fan of B movies as I am, then you must see this movie. The only think that is keeping this from being any better a B movie is the lack of Eric Roberts, but the hokey effects and plot just about make up for it.

Also, if you ever plan on making great movies, then you must see this movie.

There are a lot of movies that are seamless and clean, and you can learn from those - like Seven Samurai or, generally the Lord of the Rings (with the exception of a few CGI problems), but this movie will lend excellent examples of how NOT to do so many things - yet, in many respects, the film comes so close to being good without ever actually coming close to being good. It is this feature that provides so many great illustrations of the differences between almost good and good movies.

This will never be a cult classic because it is not well done enough for that, but it is a "must see" for B movie lovers and movie makers.
