7 October 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

the concept of this movie is far more entertaining than the actual movie!

i thought somewhere in the story the movie will get off the ground. it didn't! instead it just sinks further down and leaves you wondering when it will end. i'm sorry to state the above but i found the actors a bore and the plot line disjointed and self absorbed.

plus the 'look' of the movie isn't consistent! some scenes looked well thought out others as if their time was short so they took what they got. i realize this was a budget film but even budget films can be consistent throughout.

so why did i watch the whole thing? read above. better yet don't waste your time on this one - use that dollar on something else.
