Quotes

Dr. Vincent Garret: Essentially, the eyes are a sort of a camera, in which you can figure the brain is a roll of film. Everything we see, feel, touch, is stored for an indefinite period of time. The key is being able to retrieve it.

One Bad Movie
2 July 2019 | by badboyjohn-38189See all my reviews

This was pretty bad overall starting with a script that definitely could have been better written but it did have some decent action scenes. The actors mostly did a decent job considering what they had to work with and the cinematography along with the special effects were good.
