It could have been worse
17 June 2016 | by stuartb-43428See all my reviews

This movie could have been worse.

I have to admit that I wasn't paying very much attention but I went in assuming that this would be a totally terrible movie and was mildly surprised to find that this was in fact a movie that had a bit of thought put into it and had something of a budget.

The plot (whatever it was) was pretty crap, it didn't hold my interest at all but I can say for sure that it had something to do with toxic waste.

For the most part it does seem to have been shot in Africa and the setting does add a little extra flavour to the otherwise mostly dull affair. Which makes up for the nigh on non-existent characters of the 'characters'.

The best thing that I can say is that for a few brief moments when there were action scenes happening I managed to have a little fun. There were some pretty neat explosions! Not enough to make this worth watching however, a truly mediocre movie through and through.
