Terrible!!!
18 October 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

As a big fan of these films, I loved the first 3 this was a big disappointment. I've given it 2 out of 10 and in truth I feel like giving it a 1. Totally sold out and pandering to the masses now I'm afraid. If you a teenager this film will probably be for you. It's very much designed for this age group, a million miles away from the original. I had a feel this was going to be the case with this one. I'm sure they will do more but for sure I will not be watching, it's nothing but a cash cow now. Sitting watching this with some friends with a bunch of very rude teenagers behind us eating takeaway, kicking seats, and talking on mobiles during the film did nothing to add to the experience but did sum up the type of folk that will enjoy this drivel.
