This movie was a Mega Fault!
5 January 2010 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

I think the people making this movie had their hearts in the right place, but the movie turned out to be so crappy. Everything was against the movie from the start; the casting, the story, the CGI effects.

Lets start with the cast. Most people seemed like they didn't have their hearts in the project, as if they were going on autopilot. And, although I never were a fan of Murphy, what is up with her in this movie? She looks like she was on crack.

Moving on to the CGI effects, or lack thereof. Whom have ever seen fissures in the earth opening up and actually track people and cars? Or cracks opening up on one side of the car, then they are magically gone in the next scene, but the car is still driving at the same place. Man, the CGI effects in this movie were poor, no make that pisspoor.

Somehow I managed to make it through the entire movie. I forced myself because I wanted to sit through what was possibly the worst movie I had ever seen at that time.

This movie is bad with a capital B. If you, like me, enjoy finding subtle and in-your-face-obvious mistakes in movies, sit down and watch this one. You will have a paper full of errors. :)
