Amateurish...
8 August 2008 | by (Athens, Greece) – See all my reviews

Although it's a bit tough, 'amateurish' is the best word to describe this film. The plot is very common, the characters are not original at all and the animation is so bad it hurts. The animation actually ruins every good aspect of the movie, whatever little exists. Some objects look realistic and the character animation is fluid, but it never looks natural and so the characters seem fake, like (very) bad actors. Every action scene is also ruined by unrealistic movements and horrible explosion effects. at no point does the world look believable.

As an homage to the noir genre it doesn't do much either, as it simply takes some plot ideas from a few popular noir films and mixes them together in a rushed way.

In a few words: don't waste your time on this!
