What a joke, a very bad joke.
28 July 2013 | by See all my reviews

This movie plays like a bad joke. It suffers from horrendous pacing, lack of plot twists, sub par acting villains and bad script. Summarized in one word: Boring. It lacked charisma and spirit from the main characters and at one point I was laughing my ass off at the movie, and its not supposed to be funny.

The bad guys are like a bad joke, the main characters are like a bad dream and the screenplay is like a little kid playing with old toys absentmindedly.

The producers could have donated the budget to art schools instead of producing this joke of a movie. Please find something else to do instead of wasting precious time to see this film.
