If you need to kill some time -- let me suggest self mutilation.

I was conned by the actors. A cast worthy of a decent evening's entertainment. There may be some film making talent involved with this picture, but they somehow manage to completely bore me, despite an attractive group of women, and funny and charismatic men.

The premise would have been far more interesting if I actually gave a damn about any of the characters. Unfortunately I really can't say anything good about this film other than the fact that if one person reads this review and doesn't see it, I feel I've done some public service.

Shame on the makers of this movie, wasting a good cast with lame fight scenes filled with uninspired dialogue and even less interesting deaths.
