cheap looking flick
29 February 2012 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

How is it possible that a producer from series like Carnivale and Spartacus: Blood and Sand has made such a bad flick. Daniel Knauf should have known better, maybe he did because this was his first and last attempt to make a full feature.

The budget must have been very low because when they are running through the corridors you can easily see that they ran in circles. But by editing they tried to avoid that feeling. The CGI used is one of the SyFy style, so really bad. When they are hiding in a room full of rocks , they really looked like Styrofoam, made me think of the flick APE.

On the other hand the bad guys were, sigh, Russians with bad , sigh, teeth. So cliché. There's too much of talking and the shooting at the last reel of the flick is boring too, it takes too long. There's one body that's been slashed in two by an automatic door, done CGI. I never got into the characters and the acting was mediocre. Sad but true, indeed a dark descent.
