Damn Good
9 April 1999 | by zaskarSee all my reviews

First of all, you have to remember this is a VERY low budget movie. Made by a man who loves movies, and his son. I feel the story is excellent, yea, the acting could use a little work, but come on, not evey si-fi movie can be Star Wars. I'm not saying its the greatest movie ever, but it is very entertaining, and fun to watch, and that is what movies are all about!!!
