Dull and painful
24 October 2010 | by See all my reviews

The acting is horrendous the lead actor isn't even 1 dimensional. The politician brother's acting is worse than the new guy in your average soap.

The plot is relatively simple, it would take a good director to spin this into a decent film. Lacks drama, suspense, any humour, plot twists, it's not even violent. Quite possibly the most boring film I've ever tried to watch. It's that bad I felt the need to comment on it!

Vinnie Jones is undertaking an exercise in hamming it up.

Obviously Christopher Lee produces a good performance by default.

Christopher Lee fell out with management on the Lord of the Rings due to artistic differences and then undertakes a project like this!!!

PS the politicians wife just piped up, just when I thought I had already seen the worst performance in this film.
