Ruined by the "Acting"

Here's the plot:

A gritty independent film which follows the crime spree of a vicious pack of thugs.

Molly's calm 9-5 life is turned upside down when the gang brutally attacks her.

She survives a horrific ordeal only to find the thugs want her dead before she can bring the law down on them.

Her only hope to protect herself is to trust the detectives working on the case, and stand her ground and the fight the murdering thieves.

It's an interesting idea for a film and overall it's presented in a good way.

What really ruins the movie, however, is the absolutely horrible and unbelievable acting.

NO ONE in this film can act their way out of a paper bag.

Here's an example -- two girls are being chased. They run down to cross a small stream and when they get to the bank of it off the road (running from a killer mind you) they basically stop to carefully navigate the rocks. If your life was in danger you'd be sprinting. The scene is laughable! And there are lots of others like this.

It's really too bad, because this could have been a very solid film.
