waste of time.
12 November 2005 | by psoasminorSee all my reviews

Drove from LA to OC to watch this movie--I regret it. A long cliché with horrible acting. It was visually ugly with story line after story line of trite. Not a hint of originality, surprise or creativity. I wanted to like the movie, but just couldn't. The characters were unbelievable and synthetic. Does anyone really act like that? What could've been a senior 30min project in college turned into a 90minute bore. It makes me sad to know that other Vietnamese filmmakers could've been brought to the big screen but that this one was chosen.

p.s. I don't understand Vietnamese, but somehow I can tell that the acting was horrible in another language?
