Did You Know?


Production of the computer-generated imagery in the movie was convoluted and problematic. Uwe Boll claims he had to fire several different CGI providers who outsourced their jobs to lower-quality providers who worked for less money. See more »

[first lines]
Muriella: I knew you'd come.
Gallian: I told you I would.
Muriella: I mean, I felt it. I felt it before you came.
Gallian: You are developing your powers well, Muriella. Our time together is paying off!

I did not enjoy this movie!
13 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was SO disappointed in this movie. My husband wanted to leave about 45 minutes into the movie. I convinced him to stay. I just knew there would be some redeeming quality to it. Seriously, Burt Reynolds, Leelee Sobieski, Ray Liotta, and John Rhys-Davies, I thought with all these well-known actors it would be good. Boy was I wrong. It must have been a slow week in Hollywood for them to sign on. I should have known when I hadn't seen any press or reviews for it that it was going to be a stinker. As we sat through the entire movie, we watched others leave and never come back, listened to the boys behind us comment on how bad it sucked, and I was wondering if there was a money back policy for bad movies. I could have done something better with that $16 and 2 1/2 hours of my life. Watch this only if you have nothing else to do.
