holy cow this is bad!!!
13 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

wow! I'm actually playing the DVD right now and it is soooo freakin' awful! I don't even have to wait for it to end to write my review. It's like a sub-par student production. The writing is unbelievably bad. And the acting... well, I seriously think I saw better acting in my daughters elementary school play. If these are serious actors trying to build an acting career, I really feel bad for them, it would really have to suck to be associated with this film. If I were them, I'd make sure to leave this horrid film out of their resume. I'm not all that picky when it comes to films either. I always try to find something good about a production. But this.. I just can't find the silver lining on this film. I think this Ulli Lommel fella should maybe consider looking for another line of work.
