I liked it, not too much but it was entertaining
27 November 2012 | by alexfromhornSee all my reviews

I think this movie was nice. The storyline is not the best but it doesn't interrupt the entertainment factor in my opinion. Parts of the story were weak and a little senseless and explanation was missed but other parts were very nice and very well explained although those hadn't much to do with what was happening. The effects were pretty cool for an older B-Movie, I liked them, especially the real effects made from plastic and stuff were cool, the computer effects were as expected cheap but nonetheless not eye-hurting. The main character is going through quite a sick adventure mainly driven by revenge while he looks a little like Schwarzenegger in Terminator 2 but with a far worse haircut. I can recommend it to anyone who likes Sci-Fi stuff, anyone who doesn't probably shouldn't watch this movie.
