the down side of low budget film-making
19 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is wildly overrated on here, at present sporting a misleading 5.1. I'm giving it a 3 and I debated giving it a 2; what saved it from that was that, for all its faults, it did ultimately tell a story and the story was a little bit interesting. The trouble is, there's almost nothing else good about the movie. The only other reason I kept watching was Kelly Williams, who is sleek and sexy and barely dressed (at most).

Brion James did a lot of good work in his career. This won't go into that category, mainly (I think) due to the under-written script. The story had potential but the script wasn't up to the challenge of doing it justice. All the actors could have used more writing of their parts to give them some good lines to speak, and to make the scenes more dynamic and give them better flow. Instead we get stilted dialog which is obviously being improvised. If you're going to improvise, rule #1 is: be good at improvisation! These people are not -- or else they did not get properly prepared for it.

I can only give this a 3, and it's a low 3.
