So BAD it's criminal
15 August 2012 | by bobchangSee all my reviews

I coulda gotten six high school kids to direct and shoot and act this ... thing and you wouldn't have noticed any drop off in quality. Trust me. It's that bad.

What's bad? The plot, the characters, the lines, the acting, the action, the camera-work, etc., and the stupidity of it all. 60 seconds into this movie, you already know that you're looking at a DB; and 80 dull minutes later, it's just a stiffer DB. How's that?

How bad is it? On a scale of 1 to 10? This one gets a minus 12.

Forget harsh interrogation techniques. Just threaten any terrorists or suspects with this movie, and they'll tell you everything. I guarantee it.
