Over hyped bad film, 7 November 2006
Author: nwfilmguy from United States

I must disagree this is by far one of the worst films I have ever seen. Yes its a true independent in-terms of the fact that it was shot on 50k.. and man you can tell. The sound is a joke! it clips, the Foley is not present. i mean take some time and do it right! They claim it was shoot on 16mm but i could swear it was shoot on digital, it just does not look like film ... or shoot by people that don't know how to use a camera at all and very bad lighting.

The more important thing to bring up is that as an independent you have to have a SOLID story that will drive people and introduce you to characters that will suck you and want you to love or hate them... the only people i hate are the filmmakers for making a movie with out a storyline. Hollywood crap like The Marine are more entertaining than this and thats sad. Its too long with childish writing that does not go anywhere. It has stage actors that over act of actors that have no idea how to act. Even the Exec Producer shows up in and is so bad its a joke. As a director you need to guild your actors, and help them craft their characters.. even if they characters are dry and one dimensional.

OK special effects again not bad for 50k BUT still it comes across as a cheap horror film, Troma makes better movies than this. The blood is thin and sprays out all over and does not look real. But not bad for the money... the guns that where all over this movie have very bad audio. The ADR work is a joke! You can tell where they are live on set and when they are totally in some bad sound studio because the audio is to deep.

Look this is not a good film, and just because they made it on so little does not mean we should glorify it. Who cares you can tell they made it on nothing, they took no time to make a story that flowed and entertained. The director is young and lacks the talent to make the characters talk. It is an insult to compare this movie to a Quentin Tarantino film! Next time stay in pre-production longer, get actors that can act... spend more money on sound. Suck me in, don't push me out.

I also would like to point out they turned down a 1.2million dollar distribution deal because they want full control and want to make 100million and actually think they will. Independent film makers need to learn if they want to make it in Hollywood your first film will not make you that much.. your second film will make you the money.. Its a business.

Oh and done give me that "your a sell out" if you do that. First this is not some amazing film that will change your life.. its a violent plot less, bad acting pile that uses the F word far to much to the point where it becomes a joke. So they are not selling out.

This film is good for one things... in school "what not to do when you make an independent film" Sorry guys, it is just that bad. Don't waste your time. It will get a cult following because its just so bad... it becomes funny... then boring because you just want it to end.

Don't waste your time. I gave it 1 star for effort... and because it is as low as i can go.
