Shelved for a few years and should have stayed there
14 August 2018 | by hampersnow-28905See all my reviews

After watching this travesty of a film I did a little research online and this movie was shot back in 2015 and is so bad Sony shelved it. That is all you really need to know, because it should never have left the shelf. How they managed to get some fairly decent actors to star in this can only be explained by an actor's need to eat and pay bills too. There is barely a plot or story, It looks like it was made for TV and not quality TV, but something children might watch in the afternoon. It's one of those movies where there is no budget to film the good and exciting stuff , so much of what has happened is told in voice over , over the opening credits. There is no caring for the characters because there is no build-up. Matt Smith, who is British , tries to do an American accent but just sounds like there are marbles in his mouth. He is awful and Stanley Tucci is just embarrassing himself. I love movies that are so bad they are good, but this is just boring and stupid and I had to struggle to stay awake. Some movies should never see the light of day. Couldn't Sony have taken it as a tax write off and saved me 90 minutes ?
