Don't lose your time (and patience).
28 May 2007 | by (Essex, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I watched this movie mainly due to the location: I'm currently living in San Cristóbal de Las Casas, Chiapas (Southwest of Mexico), and I was curious about seeing the town on screen. I didn't expect a great film, as I thought it'd be an average commercial product. What a mistake.

It is much worse than what the 4.7 rating could make you think. Acting, plot, cinematography, dialogues, are all totally lame, and there is nothing -nothing- to like in the whole movie. Not a single minute. There is nothing scary or exciting, not even interesting. It is really hard for me to believe that the movie actually made it to cinema screens.

Definitely, one of the worst and most boring films I've seen in years.
