Great start ... awfully ended .
19 December 2011 | by ultrasahandSee all my reviews

As a fan of Milla Jovovich and Marcia Cross(Desperate Housewives) I picked out this film and as I started watching got amazed by the act which really attached me. Milla playing as a con artist trying make the ends meet. i watched through almost the end and waited for an accident or something so it get's interesting and when I saw the cast and crew names at the end It just hits me that I just wasted and an hour and half of my life . My apologies to fans if they got offended by my review I'm really angry with how the movie ends or maybe it's me cause when I see Milla I'm also waiting for a zombie to pop up :D BTW ... Directer done an amazing job !!!
