Incredibly poor film
16 September 2019 | by kipacoSee all my reviews

I find it quite unbelievable that films as bad as this get made these days. If the acting were any more wooden it would have been better to have filmed it as a stop-motion animation. 'Nick Dayton' in particular has to be seen to be believed. Cell block H school of acting comes to mind. Danny Webb is generally fairly versatile but must be light on work to have got involved in this. Sporadic plot speeds and curios angles make it tempting to blame the director. We think it was probably directed by committee!

Seriously bad film with very little redeeming qualities.
