Wow
15 April 2009 | by seanghSee all my reviews

This movie redefines the term inept. Atrocious acting, worse editing, and terrible effects of any kind. Funny to see the only so called racing, and people are driving at about 8mph. Kids on tricycles go faster. Thankfully with films like this, the fast forward button makes 90 minutes of pure misery about 5 minutes instead.

There isn't even a funny one liner to be had here, which is usually the staple of all terrible movies. The only chuckles to be had within this tripe was the laughably bad violent scenes, or heaven forbid, the fight scene with the plastic arm looking cyborg guy. I've seen better production values in a high school play, seriously.

I am not familiar at all with Asylum productions work, past, present or future releases, but if all their films are as god awful as this one was, you can bet I won't be watching any others.
