You can tell how good a movie is by the sound quality.
11 December 2006 | by TheWhistlerSee all my reviews

Lots of times you can tell how bad a film is by he sound quality.

This must have been a very low budget film because it has such bad sound that I had trouble even understanding dialog. You crank up your TV to hear the poorly under micraphoned characters and then in the next scene they surprise you with some crap, like a really loud vacuum to see if they can blow the speakers in the TV.

This crap has the feel of a college film project.

The sound track is horrible too, it's supposed to set feeling but it's more like someone just randomly pushes keys on a keyboard. And the random keyboard pushing just keeps carrying on and on.

I also have a feeling they only had one camera when filming this one.

I don't know what was funnier. The 3d special effects they used for the target shooting scene are the acting.

If you can get over all that, there is a couple funny points.
