85 minutes of my life wasted, 25 July 2013
Author: Filmaniac123 from United Kingdom

After watching the first 15 minutes of this film one question spring into my mind - "is this serious"? I mean, how on earth this film was allowed to be made?

The movie was made in 2011. But the costume, makeup, CGI etc, was so bad that I was wondering if it was a misprint, which should read 1981! It was simply laughable.

I don't want to go into the story but I can tell you guys after forcing myself to finish watching this (very painfully), hoping there would be a surprise or twist or whatever. I was totally disappointed.

This movie can easily be the worst of the decade. Avoid at all cost.
