So bad it's just bad.
10 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I wanted to start this review by writing something positive about the movie. I'm trying to think of something. I really am. While it's certainly not the worst movie I have ever seen, there is also nothing there to make up for the time I lost watching it.

The writing was very bad. There was no suspense. Every plot point could be seen miles ahead of time, even by TV movie standards, which are pretty low. Characters seemed to learn things magically, as there was nothing shown to give basis to their conclusions.

The acting was so bad. Sean Young was just painful. She showed the emotional range of mold. Even her scenes of grief over losing her husband were very cold and completely without feeling.

The other actors - weren't great but they didn't make me cringe as Young did.

Something positive -- hmm -- the photography was adequate and I didn't see any equipment get caught in any shots.
