Holy crap
21 June 2012 | by e_v_mSee all my reviews

In all of my stupidity, I thought this was the big motion picture that was out in the cinema so I bough the DVD. Honestly, I have seen a lot of movies, some better then others, but this is the biggest crap ever. Even the gunshots are fake and the actors move their guns back and forth like they shoot and CGI is added later to make it look like they fire it....

I had a deja vu feeling back when the movie "The day the earth stood still" came out and in the same year that awful rip off "e Day the Earth Stopped" appeared. Same thing as this, only 4 years later. The pure waste of money that went into this.....

An alarm bell should have gone off when I saw the cast line up.....all formerly successful movie stars that are looking to score another buck....regardless the script. Shame on them.
