The pure evil.....taste!
3 August 2012 | by (Austria) – See all my reviews

Its my job to check movies. And I've seen a lot. The good, the bad and the ugly.

This flick is one of the most boring and bad written films I've ever seen. There are movies with small budget, where you can see some kind of commitment or flashes of ideas.

This movie is an absolute disaster!!! It is more fun to visit the dentist and get your teeth removed without painkillers, than watching this 90 minutes of nonsense.

But the worst of all: This is the most terrible, illogical and uninteresting script ever written! It even tops the lack of talent by the actors or their unwillingness to perform...

The teacher doesn't even know the bad guy, but doesn't inform the police about a murderer, because she is afraid of him? Are you kidding me? She waits until another guy gets shot. And then she got her great calling for justice and gets the feeling, she could help out as a witness...

After seeing this movie, i'm disturbed. Not by the film itself, but by the fact that someone is willing to pay for this kind of c*** or/and sacrifice 90 minutes of his/ her lifetime.
