During filming two things were broken by the same person, one was Mike Mitchell's quad bike, the other was Mike Mitchell's toe. The producer and Taylor character, Michael G. Clark, crashed the quad bike by hitting the only mound of earth in the area. And Mike Mitchell broke his toe while kicking Taylor's stand in - a bag of soup tins. See more »

Budget doesn't matter. It just isn't professional
13 March 2009 | by PortosMSee all my reviews

It is OK movie if it would be done by high school kids for their friends. It is way below limits be called "professional". There isn't plot, no actors' play and visual looks like you see it through the plastic film. I was so glad that I have FF button on my remote, 32x worked really well. I understand that everyone need to start somewhere, but it shouldn't be reason to bring it to the public. If you have concerns about quality and budget - "Open water" was made on $60000 and more than half went to the guy who provided the security in the ocean and trained sharks. And that movie looks 100 times more professional and it was an event in the indy film-making.
