Geniunly Terrible Movie
20 July 2015 | by Seth_Rogue_OneSee all my reviews

I've seen a lot of bad films, heck I've seen a lot of bad Christian Slater films, but this could very well be his very worst

But he's not in it for that long of duration of the movie, neither are Cole Hauser or Angus McFayden

No this is primarily Sofya Skya's vehicle, both as the director (alongside someone else) and as the main star, and I think maybe she wasn't experience to handle both at the same time or something cause it didn't turn out very good (to put it mildly)

They tried to relaunch this movie under Assassins Run with a flashy poster with Cole Hauser and Christian Slater fatigued up armed to the teeth, but that does not represent this movie whatsoever neither of them even hold as much as a gun in this movie, so that's just them trying to sell this as a tough action movie when in reality it's really pretty darn boring

The best part of the movie is the credits where they play a nice little acoustic ballad, color my surprise when I read the song credits and that was a song sung by Sofya Skya as well!

I'm sitting here thinking should I give it a 1 or a 2 but there was nothing good about it (except for the song in the credits which doesn't count) so yeah I'm just gonna give it a 1
