I don't know what movie you saw -- this movie was AWESOME!
30 July 2004 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

This movie ROCKS! I saw this at the LA Film Fest and I really enjoyed it. I never write on these boards, but seeing some of the wack reviews, I felt like I had to say something. The acting is top notch with Dash Mihok and Vince Vieluf killing it as the bad guys. It's cool to see a movie where the bad guys are as fleshed out and interesting as the heroes. And for the first time in history, a movie rave actually looks and feels like a real rave. In my opinion, the only downfall is that it was a little bit slow getting the action started, but once it's rolling, it's game on! I was totally into this movie (if you can't tell) and when it gets to the theaters, y'all should definitely check it out. So, all you haters, keep hating, you don't know what's up.
