Lt. Samuelson: Assault on one of my officers is punishable by death in my new world.

The Worst movie I have ever seen.....EVER.
15 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I felt like I was watching an example of how not to make a movie. I think the director filmed it in his back yard! There was no real plot.

Terrible script.

Terrible acting.

The worst production I have ever witnessed. A couple of bad CG effects and then the rest of the movies was spent walking around in what looked like a junk yard.

I don't normally write reviews to movies but was moved to warn everyone about this one.

Life is to short to waste your time with this movie!
