OMG it's worse than "Connie & Carla", 2 January 2009
Author: quantumcat from Netherlands

This is a bad movie. It fails on every turn. It's not even a 'good' bad movie -like TROMA (mostly) makes. I don't care that they borrow from Aliens, nor that they borrow from Evil Dead with a mix of MIB and the mist... I don't care if movies are unoriginal, or predictable. I don't care if they have poor CGI, I can put up with decent Sfx, not everyone has the funds to hire ILM, I can put up with bad acting. I want movies to be fun, you know: entertaining. For that, they don't have to be picture perfect.

Guardians fails on every front. what's killing is the screenplay. The pacing is ... well off the mark, it's illogical, the plot has no sense of direction and (ergo) is very difficult to understand, it is as if instead of editing the lenghty bits out, someone simply pressed ">>|". I know most bad movies have plot holes large enough to sink the Titanic, but the storyline is generally easy to follow. With guardians ...

I am a big fan of bad horrorsflics ... this one nearly broke my heart...
