So, so bad!
4 February 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the first movie I have reviewed here, and I do so as a response to those who are praising this movie.

I don't know how anyone can honestly praise this movie, it is a shear mess. Editing and pacing were terrible, production quality below most TV episodes. I'm sure the actors did the best they could with what they had but what they had wasn't much.

This movie is in no way near as enjoyable as "The Sword and the Sorcerer", it is in no way nearly as coherent. This movie made little sense, even with the ham-fisted exposition. The trailer for this movie was better than the movie!

Maybe this mess could be salvaged by throwing it into the category of "so bad it's good", and that's a big maybe.

There are only two suggestions I have for watching this movie: either watch it inebriated or, simplest of all, not at all.
