warning: watching this movie can cause serious brain damage!
14 December 2008 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

ablaze is absolutely the wort movie i've seen in years. it is so bad that it comes close to being a parody. but parodies were meant to be absurd, the worst thing about ablaze is that it actually tries to be a serious action movie.

i wonder whether the director/producer hung himself after seeing the end result. he should be banned from any film studio for the rest of his life!

there is totally nothing positive to mention about this movie: camera-work is a drama. action scenes are totally absurd. the acting is below every possible standard, the average commercials actors, selling loans, is doing a better job than these people. the movie is loaded with bloopers, all over the place.

this movie trying to be serious is an absolute insult to the viewer's intelligence, even if the viewer is a complete moron.

watching this movie is an absolute waste of time, you could just as well stick your head into the sand for an hour and a half!
