A comedy?
25 June 2002 | by (England) – See all my reviews

The 2 reviewers below have done me no favours whatsoever. I had many comments planned which between them they've both covered.

I'll repeat the main ones again. Every cliche in the book is used for the victims & their escape: screaming women, gobby macho bloke, man who works for the company, nerdy boffin teenager with thick NHS glasses (Only missing the sellotape on one side), people wanting fights instead of working together to get out, unexpected fires, floods, shakes & electricutions!. It was a shambles. Oh & lets not forget the bent high ranked official, on the fiddle, trying to keep the press away.

This film was on SKY & I hate myself for giving it as high as 4/10 but it had the potential for & occasionally threatened to be, (quite) exciting, but just lacked that story line suitable for person over 2 years old.

It must have been meant as a comedy.
