REALLY slow
18 June 2000 | by Tito-8See all my reviews

Now then, THIS was a boring movie. In fact, it's one of the slowest moving films that I've ever seen, so if you are someone who likes movies with a minimum of dialogue and action, then perhaps this movie is for you. However, if you're like me, you'll be bored almost immediately, and you'll find that even with a short running time, this movie definitely drags. Without a doubt, most people will not enjoy this movie.
