This Movie has to be the worst movie I have seen in my life., 11 June 2009
Author: kmsubaru from San Diego, California

This is a very low budget movie, really I cannot tell you enough how bad this movie is. Save your money or go see some other movie. I watch this movie screening in San Diego and I am so glad I did not pay for the tickets. The sound of the movie it's the worst of all.

Do yourself a favor and do not go and see this movie. You will leave the theater with a very bad taste. the story is just not credible at all. There is really not much you can say about this movie except that its so bad, people were leaving after the first 25 minutes of the movie. the only reason I did not leave was because the person that gave me the tickets was right next to me.
