Yes, it is as bad as its rating
28 August 2011 | by See all my reviews

This movie is too bad to have been released to view on television.

Yes, the acting is bad. What else is bad? The directing in ALL aspects of the film, set design - fake looks fake, editing....they should not have let this film out of the can.

My biggest peeve is the lead female, Josie Davies (a TV movie actress), however her body double is in extraordinary shape, especially the arms. So, it is poor decision making to not have Josie workout her arms while actually training on a mountain climbing wall.

It is very sad when actors and actresses take on a project, for whatever their reason, to only hear how bad it is. Flops happen.

This may have been a block bluster had only the script was passed on to someone who know what they are doing while blindfolded and hands tied behind their backs.

Be warned. This is not a must see.
