This movie is just awful
23 December 2003 | by (Vancouver Island, BC, Canada) – See all my reviews

I appears to me that this movie was originally filmed with the intent to be used for a video game.. Almost the entire movie is filmed in the first person shooter format.. and you can tell when the input of the gamer/watcher is required. It is my guess that the original format was rejected as a game and never used... So to try to salvage something out of it, the film maker decided to make a movie out of it.. This movie is so bad, I think it may even gain momentum as a cult following like that of others in this category like "Attack of the killer tomoato's"

This move is a "C" rated movie if not lower,

Avoid it unless you are studying how bad a movie can get
