I want my wasted life minutes back.
28 June 2009 | by See all my reviews

Worst movie I saw in months.

Theatrical settings, extremely painful bad acting, ripping-of of American movie clichés, terrible soundtrack and a script that seemed to be written by a 15 year old.

The movie itself is a waste of time. Sound effects seem edited from other movies. I have no idea what the budget was for this flick, but whatever it was I assure you: it looks a very very low budget. Acting seems like amateur local groups. Even the camera work is bad.

A tip for Portuguese directors: Showing breasts IS NOT the way to sell a movie!
