Sure the effects looked like they were made in Adobe After Effects but that was okay.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eFocusing around simply 3 characters it started interesting but descended into mediocrity as it became apparent the writers really didnu0026#39;t have any new ideas and were just recycling from dozens of better movies that have come before.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eOf our three one couldnu0026#39;t act to save his life and one was not only a poor actress but played the screaming damsel in distress a tad too strong (Despite the character being described as having more balls than the others combined).u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eBuilding up to a lacklustre, predictable and lifeless finale it felt like they had something there but simply couldnu0026#39;t deliver on the underwhelming writing.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eRantsu003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAt time of writing this is the first review and the movie doesnu0026#39;t even have 5 votes in order for IMDB to build an average. I think this is a bad film donu0026#39;t get me wrong, but I hope it doesnu0026#39;t get absolutely slaughtered. The filmmakers arenu0026#39;t bad, theyu0026#39;re just making something out of nothing. The cast however, that was unforgivable and itu0026#39;s a shame you canu0026#39;t rate peoples performances separate from the film.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eBreakdownu003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eSome decent effectsnSome poor effectsn2/3 of the cast are awfulnThe leading lady was written to be far too weaknSide plots went nowhere.”
