An absolute HOWLER
3 December 2013 | by ombulutSee all my reviews

I watched this for about 20 minutes with growing disbelief, until I could take no more.

Films like this don't come along too often in my experience - there are four amazing things about this film: The plot, acting, and dialogue, which are all amazingly bad, lastly the number of people (presumably the cast) who've awarded it top marks have actually managed to achieve an amazingly good rating of 4.8 at the time of writing. This is totally unjustified - I'm struggling to give it a 1. I virtually never review films, but this one is so shockingly bad that I just had to warn people.

I suspect it will become a case study of how not to write a plot, how not to act, and how not to write dialogue. Looking at the wall for a couple of hours would be more enriching then watching this.
