incredibly bad...
20 February 2005 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

I have a hard time finding any redeeming qualities about this film. The writing is a joke, the movie had no "real" plot as far as I could see.

The directing, photography, lighting etc.. it all sucks.

I don't care for any character, they all seem to be talking the same gibberish (some kind of Stockholm-suburban Swedish.. I guess it's supposed to be cool but it only feels ridiculous.) I'm not from this part of Sweden but am quite sure that the way people talk in this movie is not how they talk around Stockholm. If that's the case I can only feel sorry for them.

Save yourself some time and money and miss this film, it, quite simply put, sucks!

And oh yes.. the writing really sucked.. I mean REALLY!
