Wow. I didn't know it could get this bad.
8 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Between the horrible acting, with apparent symptoms of low-grade voice-immodulation, and an extremely lacking story line, this film goes nowhere pretty quickly.

I have to say that I was surprised that the acting could seem so unnatural. The lines were delivered as if they were read by a monotone second grader off of a hard-to-read cue card. The action was anything but. The musical score was non-existent. The make-up was done by someone trying to imitate Adam Ant. They should have hired Adam Ant instead, as the video for Stand and Deliver at least had intentional humor.

I doubt anyone will read this review before renting, and thus this will merely be preaching to a choir for people visiting this page. Hopefully, someone will read the back of the DVD before renting. I didn't. It contains this gem: "the woman must find the courage to trust, care, and kill for one another". When there are only two sentences, you would think someone could take the time to check the grammar. Maybe the person writing the description was trying to warn us in a stealthy fashion not to rent this.
