What is worse than a poor movie? What makes a poor movie? A poor movie with this much time, effort, money, materials, and effects completely spent for no purpose.
This time travel movie is wasted efforts with predictable, dull plots, and a multitude of cliché characters so one dimensional that we could care less about them.
This movie should have been good. Most writers and directors have had concepts about entering a "portal", usually a cave, which leads to the past or future. Here, the fad idea is that water is the "portal", which adds to the clichés of the movie.
Four young, self righteous, arrogant men travel back to World War II. They are impossible to care about, and you'll find yourself just glancing up and listening to the predictable lines.
They meet a gorgeous girl. Of course, like all modern gay movies, the gorgeous girl has to die. We know this. Yawn. As a matter of fact, we know everything that will happen an hour before it does.
Director Molyukov can be forgiven for making a poor, predictable movie, but not for the waste. There is an obviously incredible amount of money spent on making war footage and explosions. All for the arrogance of spoiled rich brats. It's unfortunate that the idle rich waste their time making this garbage, while real artists languish without funds.
This movie is full of explosions and effects, to no end. It's a "vanity movie" for the people who made it, and just depressing garbage to young men who watch it. It's not "art". It's not "educational". It's not "entertaining".
