Mona Lisa snarling, The Wright Brothers in a pedal car! Bin Laden with a knuckle duster!, 14 February 2005
Author: uds3 from Longmont, Colorado

There has to be a worse movie than this - R.O.T.O.R. and CHICKEN PARK spring to mind... Nah, this takes the cake! So God-awful amateurish, trite and laughable, I would think any first-year film student would be failed on this effort. Some wannabe Bruckenheimer has figured "Lets re-make DAYLIGHT with a subway wreck...Oh and by the way guys, we only got $500 tops!" I could have made a better and more entertaining film with my old cam-corder, the postman and the moth-eaten bitser next door: CUJO 2: THE POSTMAN NEVER CALLS TWICE You're talking crap plus. Special effects so un-special as to be the laughing stock of Hollywood......make that Anchorage, Alaska! An earthquake, consisting of a camera on its side, a few hazy photographs and someone tossing dust over the lens. A train-wreck you never see. Actors can't act, a script that was hand-written on cue-cards some 10 minutes before the crew turned up......and sadly, Roy Scheider embarrassing his entire career, his agent, his family and anyone who ever attended an acting workshop.

Speaking of which, I was once asked to strip to my undies, lie on the floor and portray a rose unfurling its petals in the morning sun. "Improvise," my drama teacher said. From memory I embarrassed not only myself, but every rose that ever bloomed. STILL I topped any and every performance in this inconceivably juvenile loser of a movie.

If you paid more than $1 for this trash in any bargain-basement-bin, you've "done" your money cold!
