Worth watching
18 January 2005 | by See all my reviews

The Skulls is a very intense movie that keeps the watcher interested. This movie does not really have many qualities that would qualify it is an award-winner, but over all the movie is very interesting and is Definitely worth watching at least once. The deleted scenes included on the DVD are also worth watching, but you understand why they were cut. Joshua Jackson and Paul Walker were both very sharp in this movie, but some of the acting was a little poor. Through out the movie some flaws or holes could be found, yet all-in-all they did not affect the story line very much. In general The Skulls is an entertaining movie and I would recommend it.
