How can movies like this even be thought of being made?
22 February 2009 | by vampyrecowboySee all my reviews

OK...everybody who writes scripts can have bad days...bad ideas, lack of creativity, a blockage of something to make the story good or better.

This is a travesty.

Who thinks of a movie like this, then actually films it and then believes that a 3rd of the series should be made? This is not Back To The Future and in no ways should there have been a second or a third portion of this movie made.

While the music and camera work was alright, the story was a ruin.

It's stupid, it's pointless, it's boring. I need not write much more.

The third portion of this movie is even worse...how can that be? How can a film with a 25 million dollar budget as this is to have had - be this bad? I love movies - I can watch them almost 24 hours a day...but then there comes a time when after watching 3 or 4 movies in a row that are just horrible as a finished product, they become quite sickening to watch.

Not because they are scary, but because they are just crap - like this is and like the one following it is.

There's art, there's entertainment and there's just garbage - and this entire series falls into the garbage pile.

What could have been a really cool concept is stretched out into a 3 part series of nothing.

This is the review and it's more entertaining than the movie.

Yes, this is a retarded movie - and to watch it makes you one.
