So bad, the only good reviews on here must be buy the director
8 September 2014 | by JamesymontanaSee all my reviews

How has this film got anything above one star, the acting is poor the story line is as best weak and the ending is shocking.

When fighting with weapons you can see it bend as its made out of plastic.

it is a self indulgent film with no entertainment value whatsoever, the actors who are in this would not show this to anyone if they want to build up a credible CV to get other parts.

And don't get me wrong a love a movie that is rubbish but knows it but this is another level of bad.

Good luck if you decide to watch this and remember I did warn you.
