It doesn't get any worse than this...
31 May 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Oh boy. What a mess of a movie.

It starts out just fine, we're treated to a comic book intro, given some back story on how whoever possesses a staff has the ability to kill everyone on Earth and then it turns into a live-action film. I think maybe I would have preferred the voice over and comic book art over the real-life actors myself.

It took about the first 30 minutes of the movie just to introduce all the characters -- with their name and area of expertise superimposed across their bodies and/or faces. Do we really need this many bit players, hell, some of them don't even have lines! This movie broke every law of bad film making, it's just beyond bad -- and not in a good way. You know how those cheesy movies that are so bad, they're good? Not this turkey, not by a long shot.

The acting was downright laughable most of the time, it was like they were reading cue cards or trying really hard to make some stuff up. It's billed as an action/comedy, yet there is hardly any action in the movie at all! The stage blood looked like watered-down ketchup, the actors who got shot wouldn't just fall down, they had to "brace" for the impact.... this movie is just plain terrible.

We even had the old throwback to the 1950's cop shows where the cop goes into an alleyway and pays for information on where the bad guys are hiding -- at least make it fun or play the scene tongue-in-cheek like Frank Drebin did in "The Naked Gun" because the only thing "funny" about this movie is that it even got made in the first place. Awful, awful, awful. I think I actually lost a few IQ points by watching this piece of garbage. More reviews at www.soveryterry.com Final Grade: F
