29 March 2014 | by (Kentucky) – See all my reviews

I normally do not write reviews on here but every once in awhile a movie does compel you. First off, kudos to the producers. It is impressive that you were able to raise the $850,000 (rumored) for this movie's budget. Unfortunately it is the only thing impressive about this movie.

The casting goes to show you that you cannot pop into a nearby high school and fill out your leads and make a good movie. I'm sure this movie was shot in a very short time because there is no chemistry whatsoever among the cast. As previous reviews have stated, the acting is absolutely wooden. These "actors" are just reading their lines. For most, I'm sure this will be a one and done movie career. It is painful at times to listen to the words coming out of these character's mouths. I could pull out individuals but let's just say the whole ensemble was terrible. The only believable actor was Daniel Ball. Who was that, you say? He was the news anchor towards the end of the movie. I think he was on screen for 45 seconds to a minute but he sounded like a real news anchor. And no, I am not related to or know this person at all.

And that leads me to the story. There seemed to be potential for a good story but the execution was so lackluster. The main difference between the story and Swiss cheese is that Swiss cheese is delicious. What the story shares with Swiss cheese are the holes. Plot holes galore. The English have a perfect word for it: rubbish.

Why three stars? Well, it is not the worst movie I have ever seen and the special effects (which I'm guessing took up most of the budget) is passable at best. I should have watched this movie with a friend because then there could have been shared laughter at the absurdity of it all. But watching it alone, all you can do is just shake your head.
