Perfect for a "Bad Movie Night" or Those with Insomnia
28 June 2012 | by demonic_kittenSee all my reviews

Now, I'm not saying this film was boring..... I'm just saying that I've seen more action in a Care Bears film.

It took 50 minutes before anything remotely interesting even happened, and even that was pretty bad.

The explosions looked like they just set off a bunch of fireworks.

The only interesting thing about the film was the scenery, the country of Belize is beautiful.

The acting was sub-par and the graphics were horrible. They kept switching between black and white, colour, night vision, and infrared. My guess is to distract you from how horrible the film is. If you're looking for an intelligent film, look elsewhere. If you want a film to put you to sleep, then by all means, watch it.
