This is chock full of themes and ideas from other, better, movies. Despite that, there are plenty of holes in the plot. It boasts a roll call of truly cliched characters - the jaded father who drinks to forget and has become estranged from his family; the barmaid with the heart of gold and a sad past; the sinister doctor from a mysterious and unethical government agency; and the group of murderous rednecks with guns etc etc. They're all there. What the movie does lack is tension, excitement and a plot you care about. You won't have seen the cast in any other movies and you probably never will. They may very well be the director's family members for all I know. Some of the male cast members do look similar. Sadly, none of them can act and it's sometimes painful to watch them trying. This movie was done on the cheap and it shows. I hope no one mortgaged their house to make this movie! The script occasionally throws up some quasi-religious gobbledygook and once or twice I was asking myself if this was maybe produced by some religious organisation. I'm still not sure. The religious stuff does nothing to make the movie more enjoyable though, as you may expect.
Coming in at almost two hours, this movie is a real test of endurance. I watched it to the end, not because I was engrossed in the story, but because I wanted to see how bad it got. The answer - pretty bad. I happily recommend that you give this movie a miss and assure you that you wont actually have missed anything.
