Comically Bad, great for drinking games
4 February 2013 | by See all my reviews

I don't know what the other people reviewing this are thinking; this movie is comically bad. Horrendous over acting from the main character, horrible sub par acting from the antagonist. I especially love the part where Frank puts Lance on a rug and says "This is Lances rug, no matter who comes through that door, you don't get off of the rug." When he steps off, Frank says "Back on your RUG!" As if the rug was a useful plot device. Used it as code for a drinking game to this movie. Every time something stupid happened, we said "the rug" and took a shot. Good movie to play a drinking game with, but not to be taken seriously. The plot is horrible, motive is horrible, ending is complete crap, premise sucks. I liked Bullet to the Head better than this.
