I really wish I could give this more stars. It does start well but totally loses its way in unrealistic events and actions. Sam Neill is not convincing in this role, he simply grins, smirks and tries to look dastardly but it's classic cardboard cut-out stuff. Stephen Moyer is more convincing.
I'm doubly disappointed because I was an extra in this movie shot in NZ. I wanted it to succeed. For your information this was shot as a movie, but clearly the studio thought it was so bad it could only be released as a TV mini-series in the US and then straight to DVD. Extremely limited release as it doesn't work as a film.
Report for the director: needs to do a lot better and I agree with the previous reviews.
