Quotes

[last lines]
Josh Myron: A short time on the other side taught me that we need to live in harmony. Not just with ourselves, but with the entire universe. They returned to their planet, leaving us here to pick up the pieces. Our families would be reunited, our cities rebuilt. Somehow, every night my eyes search the stars wondering where she might be among them. We had learned the value of peace.

Well, I've seen students do better work
12 December 2008 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

Within the first ten minutes I was thinking hard about if this was a very elaborate Youtube spoof or a serious film. The acting is so undeniably awful it makes you cringe. The camera work is cheap and amateur while the sound and lighting could be done by an undergrad making their first drama. You think I'm joking? Look for the massively over exposed shot at 00:09:98.

It just gets worse from here. Very low budget, poorly written and astounding that it made it this far. There is a weird mix between shots that blew the budget and money saving stuff that makes things look just plain nasty. How many times have you seen a government agent jumping from an expensive black truck only to start setting up a fold out table for his equipment? Mix this with cheap CGI and you have an instant looser. Should have been killed in pre-production. Watch if you want to know how not to make a feature film.

*shakes head*
