Actually, I was beginning to think "How could anything be worse than this film?" However, upon reflection, I must say the sound quality was decent, the lighting was acceptable, and focus was good. In fact, overall, the technical aspects of the film was of a reasonably high professional standard.
The sets and costuming were well done to the extent that they did not detract from film. i.e. There was nothing strange that would distract the viewer from accepting that the hospital was, indeed, a hospital; nor were there any gross violations of cinematic convention.
Naturally, the bomb was disarmed seconds before detonation. If it went off, how could the picture continue without a lead? And, did you ever notice the leads (good and/or bad guys) never die from the first shot - only the bit players.
Back to the main premise - could this film be any worse? Yes, but if it were any worse, I cannot imagine anyone willing to continue watching. It's just bad enough to entice you into thinking, "It's gonna/gotta get better."
The IMDb viewers have been very generous to give this a 4+.
