MTV style crap
17 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Just watched this unbearable flick and got so angry for wasting 2 hours on this mess that I felt it my obligation to warn others, although my expectations were set low this was just incredibly bad.

1: The first thing that hit me was the editing, no pacing, there is a complete absence of rhythm in the cuts, in fact it was so bad that my eyes literally hurt and constantly went out of focus most of the time. They keep using cliché defocus in/out and lots of bloom effects that doesn't help moving the story forward one bit, it's only weird at best (bad weird). My eyes still hurt from it...

2: The story, guess what! there is no story, it seems the director just took bits and pieces out of old rehashed Hollywood action flicks and randomly just plagiarized them with absolutely no logic sense at all....it's just baaad..

3: Uneven quality, most of the scenes look like film and pretty OK I must say but some scenes really has that DV look to them that just takes you right out of the "story". It's a shame to see all this work go to waste because of lack of script and crappy editing, it's really a shame...

As I sat there watching the movie I constantly wondered if better editing would do the trick but after maybe an hour or so I started to realize that no matter how much editing there still wouldn't be much of a movie.

The one good thing I can say about the movie is Michael Madsen is in it, but he doesn't get much screen time, maybe 5 minutes tops. Some or maybe most set design is on par with Hollywood style I guess and the finishing shot in the end is really beautiful but thats about all the good things I can say about this movie, no exceptional action scenes here no sir...
