All over the place.
23 February 2014
Summary: Takes a while to get going then when it does it comes to a big stop and the story line changes completely. Seems a bit all over the place somehow. Little snag was at one point the motorbike was clearly sounding as a 4 stroke engine then same bike next scene is sounding as a 2 stroke engine that to me is pretty poor.
Summary: Unfortuntly this is a total yawn fest. Its actually pretty good until the death and then it looses all interest and slows down to the pace of paint drying. Even the ending is a total travesty of the concept of drama. Whats it going to take for mainstream films to ever do the wrong thing?
Excerpt: Definitely in my top 3 for worst movies of the year...Long....Boring...Bad acting...Characters aren't strong enough to carry the movie...To many mini plots inside each other that don't amount to anything but an excessive run time..Skip this joker...
