With the world in financial turmoil, Kurt Wendell has lost his top job in the city but cannot bear to tell his family the dreadful truth. Luckily he's a man who knows how to make serious cutbacks...

Too Long, Too Tedious
11 June 2012 | by (Pakistan) – See all my reviews

Axed – TRASH IT (C-) Axed is about a crazy father, who thinks his family is ungrateful and its time to teach them a lesson. He takes his wife, son and daughter in the middle of nowhere and then the violence of a crazy demented father starts. I defiantly liked the story and that's the reason I decided to watch this but the movie is too long and too tedious. There are so many chances everyone to kill him they all leave him half alive for no reason to be attacked by him again. Performance by all crazy British cast is good at times and mediocre most of the times. There is nothing good about it. I wish I could say it's mediocre but it's not because it becomes unbearably boring towards the end. Trash it!
