Do you want to know the truth about this film?
11 April 2002 | by (The good ol' country of Transylvania. AH AH AH!) – See all my reviews

OH. MY. GOD. If you've seen... Twister, perhaps, you'll know it's got a decent reputation and has some mean special FX. Not much of a plot, but in these films it don't really matter. URGGHHHHHH! This film was one of the worst I have EVER seen in my LIFE! The Special FX were like the ones of a computer game, they didn't even look real (The statue of liberty was the graphics quality of the first tomb raider.)! The dialogue was the worst EVER, especially since the only thing anybody can say in the film is "Oh my god...". The main guy is macho deepvoice dumbass, a crap performance. He dodges a serial killer with dumbass style (doesn't have a brain but the muscles make up for it.) Slick hair, nothing under it. The performances, actually, are genuinly terrible, the kid can say "It's OK Mommy" but nothing else. At one point, a fireman can't see through a windscreen but he still smashes through a side window, not caring if someone's there. The main kid (about 16) should really visit drama school, they are the CHEESIEST lines ever. As smelly as Stilton. Everybody in the film should visit drama school.

END: This film SUCKS and deserves 1 star. Somebody should really teach the cast how to act, and the plot is a real bummer. PLEASE, I'M BEGGING YOU, DON'T SEE THIS FILM. AVOID.
