Did I not watch the same movie as other reviewers?
8 June 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am sorry but I thought this movie was a dud. The acting was poor, the direction was worse. I thought the storyline could have been better developed. I am actually surprised Peter Gallahger would participate in a movie with such low quality.

The positive was unknown Micaela Nevárez. Rather attractive. Sadly she was stuck in a role that was stagnant. However, I wouldn't recommend this movie to anyone. I fast forward through parts I felt irrelevant,or that I felt were pointless to the story... There were a lot of unfilled holes in this movie. It could have as couple different ways, they chose the wrong way.
