don't waste your time!
9 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

From the first five minutes of this show, the ending was clear. The plot isn't in any way original or inventive. There were no twists to keep the interest of the audience. The pace was slow. There wasn't any rise or fall in the action. Even the high action scenes were painful due to their extreme predictability. The music contributed to the somber, slow tone of it all, and brings Chinese Water Torture to mind. The characterizations were extremely simple. The characters at the beginning didn't change or grow through their experiences. They didn't seem real in any way.

The acting wasn't horrible. There just wasn't any fleshing out that could be done with the script or the action. This has to be a writing issue, but shame on Angie Harmon and director Steve Antin for agreeing to be a part of such an awful movie. Still, the real shame has to belong to the writer for this awful script. YUCK! The only positive was the acting of the teenage lead, Jordan Hinson. Her acting (and character) was most believable. Still, one word describes this movie best: tedious. I kept on waiting for it to get better; I waited until the ending credits rolled.
