a train wreck
13 September 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Over the years, I think I may have posted here at IMDb maybe 3-4 times max. But after suffering through this gawd awful TV movie, I felt it was my DUTY to get on over here and see if anyone else had seen this, and if so, to read what they'd written. But it seems I'm gonna be the first commenter here, and unfortunately, I can't find anything good to write about this movie.

From the very get go, we were given no reason to care about or invest in the main character -- or care about the characters' story for that matter. The pacing was off throughout and was made worse by the editing choices -- and the music score.

This was a horribly written script; a disjointed story that meandered all over the place. How did this script get approved and the movie greenlit??!
