Like watching a bad lame video game being played badly.... Sad! Save your money!
28 August 2014 | by (Houston, TX) – See all my reviews

This was one of the worst movies I have ever experienced. It was not even so bad it was good nor will it get a cult following. I've seen better video's that kids put on youtube of their game they played. This was nothing but a paycheck for the actors I suspect or they are very disappointed if they went out on the limb to make a interesting form of genera. I am not sure what they were really trying to do but I recall making stick figures move by drawing them on different pages in school and that was more interesting than this disaster.

I have a open mind with diverse interest and also allow lots of lead-way for directors artistic interpretations and interest in varied genres. This film is nothing but a way to sell, market, or increase sales of a video game or something else I am pretty sure and suspect.

I have never given such a low rating and hope not to again. It was sad such potential was so wasted and made into such pathetic material. Kind of a mixture of the late 1800's movies, original 1960's Batman with Laurel and Hardy with only their worst parts and aspects of those old shows of which they mixed together made into such pure tripe as this movie. In fact the old shows are way better than this mess of a movie.

Save your money and do not be mislead by high ratings for they are not accurate and something is not right with such a high rating for this trash. Likely corporate paid voters or people who feel peer pressured by slick marketing to make more of this nothing movie than it is. Since they put such money into this waste of time I am sure they are desperate to do anything to save their backsides and to continue the complex unseen agenda the studio apparently has going.

No way something this bad gets to the big screen without lots of desperation and a bigger agenda influencing it with financial desperation as a underlying aspect on how it got on screen.

Do not be suckered into the marketing of this sad trash with such wasted talent! So sad!

I really gave this movie as much lead-way as anyone could and even saw parts more than once on a separate day to make sure I was just not not catching it or in wrong mood that day to enjoy such genera. No this is wasted time and you are better off watching paint dry or going for a walk on hot coals in the summer sun than watching this tragic waste of talent, screen space and money by the studio!
