Worst movie
29 October 2014 | by estebanz01See all my reviews

One of the most awful movies I ever seen. A weird intro with annoying camera movements. One of the worst footage, a history so predictable and unnecessary scenes. No doubt one of the worst. Since the beginning it's hard to understand who are the characters, why they are in Africa and why all the argument happened.

I hate the camera movement. It's possible to play with that effects to make it more real, but using that option so excessive it's stupid and fuzzy. I don't know, but this movie is really, really awful.

Finally, one of the most annoying things of this movie is the end. Guess which final will be and you'll win.
