Corny action movie
29 August 1999 | by (Saskatoon, Canada) – See all my reviews

This was a bad Canadian production about a guy that ends up in mirror world. The logic and science of this film is pathetic. It is sort of a rip-off of the TV series Sliders. Four main characters that are involved with going to a mirror world and trying to get back gee that sounds familiar. The acting in this movie was cheesy the fight scenes look bad. The weapons look like something from a toy store. The music was corny especially that stupid theme song. The characters were not that interesting nor was the computer voiced by Dan Aykroyd. This was a cheesy movie with a bad plot and a low budget.
