Awful
10 October 2001 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

How did they get John Savage and Malcolm McDowell to be a part of this mess?

A poor excuse for a story, lousy editing... well, basically, lousy everything. Usually, when I see a movie, no matter how bad, there's always one or two moments, or one or two elements, that make it worth the while. Not so here. There's absolutely nothing new in this movie, and all those familiar elements are put together badly - or should I say, not put together, rather jumbled into one big soulless mess.

Don't waste your time. It's bad, but not bad enough, I'm afraid, to make even me laugh. No redeeming qualities whatsoever.
