hard to find anything positive to say about this film
11 April 2007 | by thoma-7See all my reviews

The actors in this film are normally very good, but in this film, one never get's close to any of the characters, and the plot is so vague You soon lose the interest. Tried to see it through because I couldn't believe it could be like that for all the film. Stunts are used a lot, and maybe the director should stay to doing stunts, and let someone direct who is capable of that, and someone write a story who is capable of that. This film is the worst I have ever seen. The "plan 9 from outer space" is at least laughable for its bad effects and plot. As usual, in his films, the ad for the film is very funny, and well cut. Wish his films where a little closer to the ads...
