The Blackout
10 November 2009 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

When i first read the movie title i thought it would be a nice movie. When i watched the movie it seemed like a disaster movie at first But it was something else

Negative: The acting was bad Bad scripts/dialogs awful computer graphics

Positive The womens look really nice, only thing worth watching this movie for.

The ending was really bad and i guess they want to make a second movie based on this one with a ending like that. Don't!

One thing that keeps annoying me in these low budget movies is that it looks like the characters in these movies have no brain.
