Watch this movie only if...no, wait, don't watch this movie...
24 June 2009 | by See all my reviews

Hopefully you will be reading this review prior to watching the movie, to prevent yourself from suffering an hour and a half of horrible acting and special effects that will make you wonder, 'When was this movie really made?' The script makes you think the writer/s watched a few horror movies, and took some of the dies and combined them together to make this movie. I just wished they would have taken the good ideas instead of the horrible ones.

The CGI will bring you back to the days of...well, remember the old 50's sci-fi movies? Yeeeeeah, that's this movie. And it doesn't improve at all as it continues either.

Oh, and don't think that the acting will make up for the lack of effects. I think the scripts were left at home and they were told to improv. I haven't seen this much overacting since I rented an adult movie with a plot...and even THEY did better than this!!! Not even the "eye candy" could save this movie. Sorry but it's true.

In short, there are better things you can do with an hour and a half. Example: watch something else.
