James Coburn and Christopher Plummer could not save this flick.
4 August 2004 | by (KANSAS) – See all my reviews

Before you waste time reading this review. Please do not watch the movie.

I feel I have wasted time in my life I will never regain and I suggest you not repeat my mistake by watching this movie. That said...

If you were to judge Chris Plummer, James Coburn and Ron Silver on the content of this movie, No one would ever watch ANY of their other films. It was really that bad and worse. I have never wrote an opinion of a movie but this was so bad I had to today.

What drove me insane throughout this attempt at a movie was Ron Silver the main character, whispered his lines most of the time and you could not hear him. You could here the others but no Ronnie Baby and I was actually cursing him through the movie. Oh my his "acting" was horrible. I would say he is the worst actor of all time. As for the plot and script, they were unbelievably bad and made no sense. It was like a very bad science fiction show but with no monsters or special effects.

I can not imagine why James Coburn would take such an empty lifeless role.
