quite possibly worst acting and movie EVER
22 November 2009 | by moneymunceSee all my reviews

First let me start off by stating that I did watch the entire film. Don't know how I did it but Had to see how this film would end. The acting in this film was atrocious and difficukt to watch.I am always confused how the directors/producers of these types of films can look at this finished product and feel comfortable releasing it and attaching there names to it. That is career suicide. The one positive is at least the film had a twist to it which did make me continue to watch. But other than that this was a terrible film. I give it a 2/10. Not sure how the one user gave it a 7/10 as there is no way you could possibly enjoy this garbage
