Worst "acting" I've ever had to suffer through watching
12 April 2017 | by mikemaxmSee all my reviews

I honestly try to find the good in smaller budget action flicks like this, but this movie was SO BAD it was truly unwatchable.

I agree with whoever commented above; the worst thing about the movie was the abysmally poor acting- especially the terrible performances by "actors" Steven Dell (Blaine) and Stephanie Gerard. I don't know if they are relatives of the producer or how in the world they convinced anyone to allow them to be on screen, much less paid to act? I mean the acting is so bad I could smell the stink through the screen.

Dell seemed to just rely on flexing muscles and continuously looked lost and confused the entire time he was on screen. He was so ridiculous that it was distracting; while Nina Bergman (Trinidad) was over eager and theatrical- and almost as silly to watch. No reasonable effort was put into making a coherent story line or good camera work. And even less effort was put into bringing the characters to life. It seemed more like a group of adults playing an awkward game of dress up and make believe. These people should not be making movies they clearly have zero background in acting, nor any talent as actors.

Action sequences were unrealistic, over-acted, dark and even hard to see (I mean physically see lol. Poor camera work) Plot "twists" were predictable and boring. This performance is the type where you feel insulted as an audience that people are trying to pass this off as a movie just to make a buck off you.

I agree with the post above- no idea who is giving art Camacho money to make movies but pouring it into a lackluster script like this and into ridiculous actors like these is really wasteful. How wonderful if instead that money Was just given towards the arts for kids in underprivileged areas, or really to any cause other than this train wreck of a movie.
