The worst film I've ever seen
15 August 2003 | by Serpico-OTFSee all my reviews

As a poor student I was searching the video store's budget rentals for something to see. I was beside myself with joy when I found a film version of an Asimov classic. The 25p (40 cents) I spent on the rental is the worst investment I've ever made. Nothing happened in the film. Nothing at all. Then it got dark and the titles rolled. I'll never get those 90 minutes back.

Do not watch this film, unless you are some mad masochist.
