1 July 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Unbelievably bad acting almost makes this abysmal film amusing. However the pathetic storyline,cretinous direction, horrible amateur cinematography and a female lead that needs to go back to working in a call centre manage to stifle the laughs in favour of groans. Why is there some idiot from TJ HOOKER in this? Surely he cant be that broke. Even a deranged dwarf wearing flip-flops who gropes everything he can get his hands on cannot save this. The fangs are joke-shop hilarious. Plastic swords, fake sneers and ridiculously moody glares abound. The dreadful soundtrack compounds the misery of watching this. If it's tits and raspberry sauce you want, this is the film for you. Dire, droll and dismal. "Shira, we need you to serve humanity one last time " - indeed we do, kill the director for us. THIS IS AWFUL - DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME WATCHING IT.
