Studios who put this out should be ashamed
20 June 2015 | by See all my reviews

It boggles my mind how studios pay money for movies like this one. Even worse, because it's not a typical account of the events surrounding this story and more about finding an interesting angle around it, they even have scenes with studio executives that have looks of horror on their faces when the Director talks about how he wants to make it into the trash that it became. Still, they went ahead with it. They must feel like complete fools and I'm guessing such a high valued actress like Kate Beckinsale has her regrets as well.

It's just a pretentious pile of poop in the end. Hypocritical as well since it tries to put itself above the trash journalism surrounding this story but ends up putting in the same sensationalistic crap that 'sells' stories. So lame.

I was even more disheartened when I saw a few of the UK Utopia actors, Alistair Petrie and Nathan Stewart-Jarrett in the film. They must be gutted being in this one after being in such a great one like Utopia.

Thank you for wasting my time BBC Films, Cattleya, Multitrade, Revolution Films, Vedette Finance and Ypsilon Films. There's obviously not a sensible one in the lot of ya.
