You guys cant be defending this, its ambitious.. but this movie is quite bad.
7 June 2011 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

You guys cant be defending this, its ambitious.. but this movie is quite bad.

The broken English really make the movie less enjoyable, just make them even look more like amateur actors.

Quite a lot of scenes and dialogs were very corny, hard to endure. I walked away from this movie.. leaving in the background.

I can see they tried very hard to make this movie work, if they made it less corny. And if they just remove most of the English dialogs, it would be more enjoyable.

Was impressed that in a few scenes they actually did a very good job compared to the rest, but too bad most of it, wasn't.
