Bloody Awful
8 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

London, one year from today... The dogs of England are dying, of "Mad Dog Disease," and Rabbie Burns, young drifter and certified schizophrenic, is hearing voices again - on Underground trains, over supermarket speakers, and on his own T.V. He has 30 hours, a last weekend, to save the world from itself, before the "Supreme Being" himself loses patience and starts over, with a new species.

And we're supposed to care? The movie is a mess. It's awful in the way can only be achieved in the UK. Not really a drama. I suppose it's a comedy of sorts, but it's not so funny. But it IS boring. There's even a guy with a bad pig snout on the tellie.

There are only a handful of reviews. One says to watch it stoned. I don't think that would help.

And another -- obviously from someone linked to the director -- give it ten stars! It's bloody awful.
