Films don't get a whole lot worse than this one
30 December 2014 | by filmfanaticNYCSee all my reviews

Don't know where to even begin other than I wish I would have read some of the reviews before I decided to rent this thing.

The overall story was extremely predictable, I was never at the edge of my seat. I thought it was poorly directed in so much that it didn't build tension, it didn't develop the characters to create any empathy with any of them, and the whole damn thing felt a bit amateurish.

The acting was average overall. If you're even contemplating this as a dumb-but-fun action film -- don't. There's a few minutes of action, and it's appallingly bad.

To summarize, don't bother watching it. You already know what happens or will quickly get to the point where you don't care. Watching the paint peel on your home would be more entertaining than "Tell."
