This film has so many problems that I don't know where to begin.
9 November 2002 | by guitardude2000_caSee all my reviews

There are two categories of BAD movies. 1. Being the funny bad movies that you get together with your buddies and heckle (ie. plan 9 from outer space, Eegah etc.) Then there are just plain BAD BAD movies that shouldn't have been made. I believe with all my heart that this movie falls into the second category. This film has it all...poor acting, dialogue, sound, lighting, story, acting, plot...the makers of this film failed to get one thing right. This film is also a type of spin off of that John Travolta movie called "blow out" where he captures a murder by accident with his camera.

I chuckled a few times during the film where I just couldn't believe that something as bad as I was watching had made it to video release. There are also some moments in the film that come out of left field. For example, in the first 20 mins of the film, the director thinks that it would be cool to all of a sudden make all the action slow mo..."yeah that'll look great!!!guys love slow mo of cheezy, frizzy haired girls playing volley ball" And the soundtrack...don't even get me started.

If any of you are into film making, and feel that your stuff is not good enough, rent this picture and you will feel 400 times better about your material. In fact, I recommend this film to all who watch movies all the time and maybe have a hard time finding the true gems...this will certainly make the next few movies you watch feel like pure genious.

Out of 5 stars, I give this film 0, as I feel that even one star is positive in some way. Those that made this film should be ashamed.
