may this film rot in hell
23 September 2005 | by See all my reviews

Although there's been MANY films where I left the cinema early as I didn't like them this is truly the one which has been UNBEARABLE to watch! Surely, you all know the situation when you watch a film the umpteenth time and can mouth along the dialogue?! Well, I watched this film once (not even actually) and after 10 minutes a friend and I started "predicing" what was going to be said next and hey we were right - word by word by word. But it isn't only the dialogue; the whole thing is disastrous! The actors are bad (and by that I don't mean the characters they are supposed to impersonate) and the story is weak - it's been done too many times before. If you have a gripping story and use flashbacks to build up the tension that's fine, but as everything is o too predictable in this film they only fill the time till a long awaited and long anticipated end. We went to see it and managed an entire 70 minutes and that was including adverts and trailers... So my advice: STAY AWAY FROM IT and may this film rot in hell!!!
