previous reviews were very kind
9 March 2013 | by (Memphis) – See all my reviews

At the time of my review there were only 3 others. One reviewer,IMHO, didn't even watch the same movie as me. Another one of the reviewers really skewered the movie but still gave it 3 stars. Lets be honest, both the script and the acting was amateurish. There were no likable characters. Nor were they believable. I have to confess that I didn't see the whole movie, a quarter of the way in I couldn't stand it any more. I didn't want to be one of the reviewers who complain about wasting 2 hours of their life; hey, to those reviewers; why didn't you stop once you found out that the movie was awful? It is obvious what level of production this movie is well within the first 5 minutes. Even if you were intrigued by the plot; the production values are instantly identifiably bad; and no way bad in the good sense. Like a lot of other complaints about the rating system, I really wish it started with zero instead of one. Seems like this review has turned out to be about other things besides the movie itself but there's no sense in wasting any more of one's time than what's already been wasted. Forgive me for ranting.
