(In an interview with the website RogueCinema; talking about CGI) "I made it up in Canada and when we were done shooting and I had left the project then they did all the CGI. Well they did it so horribly that the film kind of sunk. They hired... (pausing to consider his next words) unknowledgeable people to handle the CGI effects. When they were done it looked more like a game show or something like a cheap game. That's where I think you run into a lot of problems when people don't know what their doing with it and people are getting tired of seeing that." See more »
One of the most horrible movies I've ever seen, if not the single most horrible. I have no idea why it was made.
The plot, possibly the best part of the film, was awful. It switched on and off between two extremes: either it was bizarre and confusing, or it was dull and predictable.
The acting would have made William Shatner sick to his stomach. The dialogue was written trite and cliché, and the delivery certainly didn't help. It was all strained, and in the rare case where there was emotion in a line, it was fake-sounding, and sometimes even the wrong emotion. It seemed like they were reading lines off the script for the first time. And the directing was just as bad. None of the motions that anybody made were natural-looking. Just a tip for the 'actors' in this film: if the camera is moving to try to (poorly) replicate the feel of a tossing boat, it's best not to just stand still, but to actually be tossed around. Especially if there's one actor who's moving around (albeit awkwardly) as if he's being tossed by the boat in the same room with you, at the same time that you're standing still! And the CGI was horrible. 'Nuff said there.
