Hollow acting
18 September 2007 | by (Wales, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

If this was not a British film and I was not British myself, I would have given this movie even less than 5. The storyline was good but the acting very hollow and contrived and reminiscent of a B movie. The actors just didn't seem natural enough. The script could have been better polished and the special effects reflected the obviously low budget of this film. However poor special effects don't necessarily make a bad movie.I cant believe that this has a IMDb rating of 10 as I write. I wish people could be more honest in their rating as it only benefits us all. The voters must surely have some connection with the producers of this movie. My recommendation - skip this film and watch something better instead.
