I wish I could give it zero
18 June 2011 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Possibly the worst movie ever made. Bad lighting, bad directing, bad acting, bad story, bad sound, bad editing. Just bad. If you are a film student and have nothing better to do with 90 mins, watch this so you know what NOT to do in a movie.

While the story had promise, the way it was done was so terrible, it took all my willpower to finish it. The filters used made it appear either pink or orange most of the time. No, it was not my TV.

The sound guy has one mic that we could tell and he parked it near the radio so that the music was insanely loud but you could barely make out what the actors were saying. Not that it mattered, really, as the acting was flat as a board and just as painful to watch as it would have been to listen to.

I would give this movie a 0 if IMDb would let me. Normally, even if I manage to make it through a movie, it deserves a 2-3. This one is abysmal.
