Drags on too long
3 February 2011 | by vampyrecowboySee all my reviews

If you're looking for a truly forgettable film to fall asleep to, then you'd be hard pushed to beat this slow, soporific piece of celluloid...

The plot plods painfully and predictably along at a pace more suited to a party political broadcast than what is laughably described as a thriller.

The acting wouldn't seem out of place on a TV shopping channel or an ultra-low budget kids TV show. Admittedly, the cast didn't exactly have a whole bunch to work with: the dialogue is nothing short of dismal and the characters are so two dimensional and clichéd that it renders any empathy towards the protagonists nigh on impossible.

The ending is not thrilling or exciting and overall, the story fails to impress.

There is plenty of smoking, so if you are into watching people smoke and tell each other to F -OFF, then this is for you, however I was unimpressed.
