All 100 minutes of this movie are unbearable.
I watched it to the end hoping for some plot to emerge and validate the movies 7.3 IMDb rating, nothing happened, so save yourself the pain.
The 'sound effects' begged me to turn it off within the first two minutes, various high pitch tones that continue throughout the film. No plot. I don't know what to say about the acting. The CGI and every part of the imagery is just nauseating.
I've never felt the need to write a review before this, the IMDb rating really effed me here though.
All trust in this rating system is lost.
DON'T WATCH, DO ANYTHING ELSE.
