Trivia

This film's title originated at an after-work happy hour among Hollywood colleagues to see who could come up with the most awful pitch for a movie. Producer Craig Berenson, who worked for DreamWorks at the time, gave his pitch for this movie based on a script called "Venom." See more »

Goofs

(at around 1h 4 mins) The air traffic controllers display shows the aircraft's on-screen altitude warning changing from yellow to red when the aircraft is descending through one thousand feet, but shows it changing back from red to yellow at five hundred feet when the aircraft climbs. The controllers display shows numerous aircraft altitude readouts displayed down to the foot, e.g. DMA 134 is shown at 9719 feet. Controllers readouts show the altitudes only down to the hundreds of feet. Thus 9719 would be shown as ninety-seven hundred (actually it would be depicted simply as 97 in the data block). See more »

Unfortunate
2 January 2007 | by See all my reviews

This unfortunate movie founds its popular success on the simple and sad fact that its viewers have been pre-exposed to tens of thousands of grotesque images and that they find entertainment in a concentrated dosage of grotesque images. This movie has no redeeming qualities -none- except to the coffers of the cretins who made it. The revolting and trite juxtapositions of sexuality and blood-rendering; the purportedly tongue-in-cheek posturing of good vs. evil; the dearth of acting talent; the unusually awful special effects; the bad miking; the racist use of blaxploition; almost all and everything a greedy but infertile mind could bring together to cause a blighted society to spend money on a movie comes together in this piece of garbage. Barring the works of a certain director of violence-without-consequence movies, this is the worst piece of brainless drivel I have ever had the misfortune of witnessing.
