The Worst!!!
7 December 2002 | by AbeStreetSee all my reviews

As you can tell from the other interviews this movie is just about the worst film ever made. Let me see how many different words I can use to describe it:

Boring - Unbearable - Laughable - Lousy

Stupid - Horrible - Insipid - Terrible

I could go on with such descriptions but you probably get the point.

Daniel Bernhardt is a horrible actor and has no individual characteristics that make him stand out. I see that he is going to be in both MATRIX sequels. While I loved the MATRIX I know have serious doubts as to the quality of the sequel.

I wouldn't watch this film voluntarily but I may make my kids watch it the next time I need to punish them.
