Worst movie I've ever seen
25 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Brought this movie home from the video store since it seemed pretty good. I mean there was a whole wall of this movie and almost all were taken so we decided to give it a shot. I looked it up here before I watched the movie and all I can say is that I totally agree with what others had to say. This movie is horrible....It's probably the WORST movie I've ever seen. The CGI is awful....doesn't even look real. Actually the whole time I was watching this I was laughing at how lame it was. The story could have been really good but it seems they just didn't care. If you see this at the video store....skip it....it's not worth wasting 94 minutes of your life.
