Not as bad as expected
14 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Okay let me be the voice of reasoning for this title. I'm sure everyone is going to say it was crappy and had a horrific plot and bad acting and yada yada yada. But coming from a guy who's watched movies with a horrific plot and laughable acting. This movie was pretty good. The acting was decent. No it wasn't Oscar worthy but for the obvious lack in budget it casted pretty well. Now I will admit it had some very huge plot holes but if you can get past the plot holes then you can really appreciate this movie. Would I watch it again, well no but it's worthy of watching it once. People expect blockbuster Hollywood movies with a blockbuster video budget. It's never going to happen. But for the budget it performs well.
