Omg, shockingly the worst movie I've ever been forced to watch
17 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If any movie deserves 0 stars; this is it. Just wow... Every time I try to think up an intelligent description for this flick, cyborg strap-on rape pops into my mind and i need a shower. Eaewwww!! And omg arggh! So, please, do yourself a favor, avoid this trash. Please!!11

. (I r making The 10 line minimum) . . . . So yeah, I'm wasting words now. Vodka... It makes my sentences concise. Have i hit 10 lines yet. I AM trying. But, and I doubt but vested interests will debate, this is the epitome of bad movies. Hopefully a few people got paid and such, but seriously, wow... Only watch this if your family was involved in it somehow. And even then, lie to them.
