bad movie
22 June 2011 | by (Hartford, Connecticut USA) – See all my reviews

I wanted to like this movie, so I was very patient, but after an hour I finally had to give up. Bad script, bad acting, bad cinematography, bad music... I could not find anything that I liked about this movie! For example, the last straw for me was a scene in which one of the characters (a baseball player who was in prison for losing his temper with the umpire, beating him with the bat in the middle of a game)... he is attacked in prison and is dying in his friends arms, when he says, "strike three!", then he goes limp and dies. Come on! Seriously?! Don't waste your time with this movie! Unless you enjoy mindless movies with bad clichés and no redeeming qualities.
