Disorganized trash...., 28 September 2004
Author: Gary-The King-Tooze (Gary-The King-Tooze) from Toronto, Canada

Well, where can I start? The first 50 minutes were building well... and then its like they had no story to continue and a 6 year old was making up the plot. I moderately liked Kurosawa's "Cure", but this had absolutely no point to it... certainly not one that I could distinguish. The guys from Mystery Theater 3000 would have torn all those massive plot holes apart at the seams. I began to suspect that it was turning into a comedy.... honestly. I don't think I have ever seen a film fall so abruptly flat on its face. I defy anyone to explain or even remember all the plot instances (how many times did people get bashed over the noggin with a pipe or wrench?). I really don't think there was any organization in this production.... ohh, and those split screens were not particularly innovative or purposeful. The film may be the worst I have seen in many years. It was ridiculous and absurd…
