bloody awful
20 July 2007 | by amsbradley75See all my reviews

If ONLY I had bothered to look this flick up on IMDb before buying it On Demand, I could have saved myself $3.95 and 11 minutes I'll never get back....that's how long I watched before being nearly overwhelmed by a compulsion to pluck out my eyes and slam them in a hardcover edition of War and Peace to ease my pain and heighten my entertainment.

I am a true crime buff, so I took a chance on this one.... lesson learned.

Of COURSE when I started to read the comments on IMDb, the first thing I read was "Don't say I didn't warn you".... you did, it was just my bad timing...

this movie FAILS.... i mean, it's an offense to any viewer, whether you're into true crime, thrillers, acting, cinematography, directing-it's a non-discriminating disappointment for all.... the set design is pretty bland, so at least that's not AWFUL....

I'm still trying to watch it, but only because I haven't yet decided what to watch instead...

this film is DREADFUL. I haven't felt this betrayed by a movie since the Black Dahlia. and THAT was a betrayal of biblical proportions...
