Some nice FX, bad movie.
13 April 2004 | by (Monster, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I rented this movie because it looked nice, nice cover, and some nice screen shots at the back cover. But the cover alone gives you a very wrong impression of the movie. It begins promising when you hear of the war that goes on for years and how the war devastates the people you hope to see some huge army that fights the final battle for survival. but non of that is in this movie. You can see a real nice futuristic fighter plane on the back-cover. Sadly its just for 3 sec in the movie. And the whole deal of those "witches" fighting against some computer animation is just strange and sometimes confusing.
