Made my brain bleed
29 October 2008 | by gero-nissenSee all my reviews

I just watched this movie with a bunch of friends. And I actually laughed really hard, as did most of the people in the audience (the ones that did not leave, that is), but that's not the point. The film takes itself seriously. The acting is terrible, the "documentary-hand-camera-look" is unnerving. It was funny, but it didn't aim for that. Me and my friends agree that this could be the worst movie we ever saw. It's just ridiculously bad. It's a pseudo documentary, so some "experts" are "interviewed". Their "expert opinions" are just sad excuses, most of them don't make sense. The back story is as unbelievable as the "highlights", everything is just cheap. If you really want to watch this, I recommend getting a lot of friends with you and prepare for the worst movie you've ever seen.
