10 September 2011 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Desperately bad acting, paralleled only by the plot (or lack thereof).

The movie was totally disjointed, and was completely devoid of anything that would grab the attention of any audience with an IQ greater the date of the month on which they were unfortunate enough to be subjected to this, for want of a better or more appropriate phrase, B-Movie.

I rarely comment on movies, but this is possibly the worst movie I've ever had the misfortune of sharing the same room as, far less, watching.

As much as I'd like to blame the writer, it's impossible to lay the blame at the door of any single person. As far as I can see, everyone involved in the making of this movie is equally to blame, and as a foot-note, it's sad to see that Bruce Willis never matured into a decent actor...
