Poor plot, sick science and questionable continuity
10 November 2003 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I watched this film by accident (a slow Monday afternoon is my excuse). Overall, it doesn't make even B-grade. I've never condemned a film because it is cliched, but in this case I will make an exception.

My only question is: did the producers run out of film and shoot the last third on video? That is the only reason I can think of for the change in film quality.
