What a Waste
16 March 2011 | by See all my reviews

Why was this film ever made? I tried to find something of value in it - anything of any value - and came up empty-handed. The script is really rather silly, considering the seriousness of the situation, the acting was adequate, pacing was sluggish to say the least. Perhaps the most annoying aspect was the musical score by Peter Manning Robinson. This is a prime example of one of those one-man deals that never made it past the clichés. The scoring was awful and the music just sort of came and went for no ostensible reason. It also cut off in mid-phrase once or twice. What a waste!
