Not even close
8 January 2007 | by jeroen-136See all my reviews

This movie seems to aim at the same public as snatch would, but the movie doest't even come close to that.

When we started to watch the movie my girlfriend said in the first view minutes "bad movie". I like to stay a little more optimistic in these cases but in this case it was false. You can't really get a grip on the movie. It does't take you trough the story.

The worst is when the killer starts singing. I really was wondering WTF is going on now. Later on the killer again is talking about his love for the girl. Then I started feeling some sort of shame and hope he would't start singing again...

It is not the worst movie i have seen but it really is not what I expected.
