A really bad movie

This movie, even though with Ian Somerhalder and Ruta Gedmintas whom are hot and good actors fail to make an impression. This low-budget movie couldn't get any worse. Some scenes were plain stupid, you'll know what i'm talking about if you've seen it. In one scene at the hospital, there is a guy who tries to talk to IAN with a gun hidden behind his back, but from the point of Ians view it's easy to spot the gun, since it has a silencer. And half of the gun pops out of his back, really badly done, and of course IAN does not see this. What a laugh!

The chemistry between IAN and RUTA is acceptable in this movie but their acting is really bad, though the bad acting from the rest of the cast kind of overshadows IAN, so even though they act bad, they still act the best.

There is no variety to the scenes in this movie, they shoot the entire film in "his apartment" "job" "coffe house" And thats it. The lack of variety made the movie boring.

The plot in this movie is really cliché, the good old set-up-story. Two men whom lies about working for the federal bureau, but in reality? alleged assassins of some kind. Didn't get the whole part as the movie really did not explain some things, or i wasn't really paying attention during this sleeping pill of a movie.

Watching this movie will really make you feel sorry for the directors and everybody involved. The script is horrible, acting and the shots. It was really amateurely done, even I could have done this movie...better.

Only thing which makes this at any way worth seeing is IAN and RUTA, the two pretty faces.. but even that is bad..
