Have you watched the latest Doctor Who? Did you even understand what was going on? The plot was so thin and poorly delivered no amount of acting, scenes, settings can help if you don’t have a story to deliver. The only real good thing was the music, it did add to the show. But that still doesn’t save this episode. It took so long to get going and then… well nothing really happened.
For heavens sake BBC. get some decent writers!
The film starts off with three deaths in a comical fashion which really wasn’t that funny where all the victims are smiling. The first thing that came to mind is the similarity with Batman, death by smiling! There seemed to be an incoherent start to the movie and an over use of comedy that really made it unfunny.
The next moment seemed to be a Matrix style battle which really wasn’t that well choreographed. Followed by a homage to Men in Black, during this scene they mentioned copyright infringement and a few Jet Li titles.
By this point the movie felt like a mismatch of ideas, but after that, the plot did get better and one or two of the sequences were not that bad. There seemed to be a lot of elements using concepts straight out of Stephen Chow’s play-book and they really didn’t implement them that well.
There didn’t seem to be much strength in the acting from anybody in this film. Nobody stood out and other than the girls being very fit! There seemed a very lack of effort with the whole flick.
There were no extras on the DVD, although it’s for sale in Tesco for only £3.00 I wouldn’t bother getting it!

I saw the film advertised on the SyFy channel recently and was amazed at how stupid it was, some really dodgy acting, some terrible CGI at times. And what is more baffling is how it’s suddenly raining, then suddenly dry. How one minute the same road that is flooded doesn’t have a single drop of rain on it, then reverts back to being flooded! O, and why they are trying to escape Los Angeles they have time to rescue a whole school bus of kids, who are raised to a bridge, vanish on the bridge and reappear only to disappear again!
These guys then made a load of bombs in what seems in no time at all, take a light weight helicopter next to a tornado which in all truth should of torn the dam copter to shreds. Then one of the girls get eaten by a shark only to come back to life after being pulled from it’s belly!
This has to go straight into my number one slot of the most incoherent film I’ve ever seen. With some poor dialogue, really bad puns and a heavy load of under acting this makes for an unemotional wreck. I am amazed they made a second one, which I shall probably watch also.
