This is a truly awful film!
8 February 2015 | by See all my reviews

I cannot describe in mere words how awful this movie is. It baffles me to think any film can achieve this level of mediocrity while trying to be good.

This film truly belongs in the pantheon of awful films,, including Batman and Robin and battlefield Earth. The film manages to not have a single good aspect, while still managing to not be funny nor serious.

Roger Ebert one said about a film that it is so bad it wasn't worth the energy of the projector to show it... that applies to this film perfectly. Ere are very few movies which can be described as total failures, and I have no problem saying this one is.
