I had heard about this movie quite a while ago and thought it was an interesting premise and had a good cast attached, and had it on my watch list.

Unfortunately, it ended up being a very hollow script with quite a few plot holes, and felt like a bad television pilot, and the way it ended enforced that feeling. Nice contact lenses though.

Stanley Tucci and the rats are the only actors that stood out. I would definitely not recommend this, give it a miss.
