too bad...
3 November 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

it's too bad the dialogue was so laughable because the subject matter is no "conspiracy theory from Pluto". i'd like to see what the director can do with a bigger budget on the same topic. i think we Need movies like this that tell it like it mostly and astonishingly is. with Christopher Lambert i sometimes have to shake my head to remember that he is classically trained. well, at least he's working. Lou Diamond Philips seldom takes himself too seriously and i liked him in this movie. and Kelly Brook! beautiful woman. Hellboy is a favorite of mine too and it's nice to see him with his real face. i suspect most people wont like this film, but i did. except for the dumb dialogue.
