unbelievably bad
11 July 2013 | by topping65See all my reviews

I do believe this is the worst movie I have ever seen. I know this channel is infamous for terrible movies and I have seen most of them.So I came in with very low expectations and I was still stunned. I have never seen a movie so chopped up and put together.One minute there are tidal waves of water & tornadoes, dry streets and sunny skies the next.The surfing scene is a great example of what I'm talking about. Everything is beyond preposterous and no explanations given. The budget for this movie must have been a Lincoln and a pack of gum. It's actually so bad, that it's not even funny. You're too busy going wha tha fa to even laugh.The terrible and ridiculous ending is the perfect way for this movie to end.
