Bad.....Instantly fast forward to end.
9 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

So bad it's bad....Can't even get thru bad...wow.

Talk about a possible good idea turned very wrong. It appears that this writer didn't have much to write about, and just filmed a bunch of stuff....edited it together and ended it close to 80 min to call it a feature film.

Like...hey I got this idea about a Marine who goes home....but he's nuts... Then.....I don't know....hmmm......I just don't know how to write a script so I guess I'll just film stuff.

The filming is very low quality, which is not the problem... I can tolerate low quality if the movie is really good. I've seen short films with no budget kill this movie.

I'm sure this has to be in the top 20 worst films of all time.
