Terrible
6 February 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

To begin with, this movie is offensively bad. The actors couldn't act to save their own lives. You will recognize the old guy from Kill Bill and so many other movies, David Carradine. Even his performance was far below par. The sound effects are off. In one scene you see a car door slam and it sounds like someone hitting a stick against a tree. Then they are in a car and all you can hear are background noises. To their own credit, they must have been on a really tight budget. The camera shots are poor quality; bad color balance, and even worse lighting. This is one of those movies that was so bad that the whole time I was thinking about how bad I felt for the people who invested in this travesty. Sorry.
