Ay Caramba...
7 October 2008 | by terrible2See all my reviews

Okay... I get the similarities to "The Crow" and the fact that it's supposed to be a comic book adaptation, and I understand that even "Fez" needs to work these days, but come on... This is the best they could come up with? It's just plain... Silly. I guess our economic frenzy has hit Hollywood just as hard, because it's sad to see great character actors like: Michael Parks, Billy Drago and Maria Alonso reduced to this pathetic piece of garbage. It amazes me, that something this bad could make it onto cable pay channels, let alone directly after the wonderful "Masters of Horror". This belongs hidden from plain site, on the back shelf of a family owned video store, and covered with dust from lack of rental. It sounds harsh, but producers need to understand this, and quit insulting our intelligence. I'll give it a 2 for above average acting and cinematography, but that's it. This is a train wreck from the get go, and doesn't deserve to be aired on something we have to pay for on a monthly basis.
