Yawn-fest...more a teen-drama flick than a thriller....waste of time.
26 February 2012 | by rforumz-imdbSee all my reviews

Started off well, became really boring as it went on.

Too much talking, made for teens. Watched the entire movie on fast-forward.

Unnecessarily long mouth-to-mouth to an old man makes you want to wash your own mouth.

Good photography and desert locations.

IMDb- this is pretty retarded that you require 10 lines for reviews. What if people have nothing more to say ? Please have your management review this requirement. You must lose lots of members due to this. Someone with a crazy idea shouldn't be allowed to sit on your board.
