Possibly the worst movie ever made
27 August 2014 | by mungfleshSee all my reviews

Shockwave Darkside 3D (as it was at the cinema) is unwatchable.

The 3D had big issues; I kept fiddling with my glasses to see if the problem was on my end but nope, it was the movie.

That aside, the story is non-existent, or at least well hidden.

And another thing, the special effects were truly horrible. Think "The Last Starfighter" from 1984 and you might have an idea what I'm talking about, except that at least that movie was doing something new. Who cares if you could argue they look vaguely realistic, they looked crap, like a not so expensive video game. Even budget effects can look good or fitting, or at least fun. These were none of the above. Cold, stark and clinical like Tron (1982), but Tron was meant to look like a video game - this was probably not.

But excluding all this, the acting was wooden and it was hard to recognize any of the characters, whose faces were obscured in ridiculous space suits.

I walked out after twenty minutes because I couldn't take any more.

To those who remained, I applaud you.
