simply awful
10 August 2012 | by See all my reviews

I could write a long review about everything awful that but simply put probably one of the worst films i have ever seen. Some films are so bad they are actually quite good but there is nothing positive about this film. The Navy SEAL's in Act Of Valour acted better than anyone in this film. the special effects are so bad it isn't even funny.This so reminds me of another rip off Battle of Los Angeles. Why bother i feel like i've lost ninety minutes of my life. Remakes are one thing but to blatantly rip off another film so soon after it was released and to put so little effort into it is a waste of time. There are so many films out there worthy of watching this is not one of them.
