Shocking!
17 January 2005 | by (Eastern USA) – See all my reviews

This is one of those movies that assumes all audiences are just complete morons, devoid of any kind of common sense and have IQ level of below 50 right from the start.

It's like a movie where the main character has amnesia, and throughout the whole movie he's trying to figure out who he is, and why he is being chased by thousands of secret polices from all over the world, but does not realize until the very end of the movie that all he has to do is look into his driver's license in his pocket.

The basis of this movie is that even the parents can't remember that their own kid ever existed because their memories have been wiped out selectively. But what about their relatives, the kids' friends from school, teachers, their neighbor, their friends, medical records, anyone from their neighborhood who might have seen them, and the kid's personal belongs? I mean is it possible to wipe out every memory associated with kids from anybody who ever interacted with him? There are so many other countless flaws that make no sense at all in this movie that it'll take days to list them all.

This is absolutely the worst movie of 2004.
