User Reviews

28 March 2011 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

I don't really know what to say. I think I can make better CGI in paint, and the acting is better in porno movies. Kevin Sorbo did a good job, but you get the same amount of good acting in the Hercules TV show. Melissa Ordway on the other hand, wow, you know she got this part for her pretty face, not her acting skills. If you want some kind of adventure, STAY AWAY! Go for a walk in a park and hit a tree with a twig. Wow! Much better fun than this movie... Catwoman is better than this movie... It might seem like I am only bitching, but I feel like I need to warn people about this half made movie...Oh yes, this is only part 1...and no part 2 has been started...
