Greatest movie of 2010. Down right amazing. Everything about the film was great. It was awesome how they mixed in old real footage and the new stuff. It had me a little scared at one point. The whole concept of this movie was great. Will you believe the video footage? You definitely watch this to find out.

James Berardinelli
The result is not entirely uninteresting, but it suffers from some ill-advised decisions. In fact, the film's "hook" may be its greatest detraction. Full Review

Mr. Osunsanmi's chutzpah exceeds his skill. Full Review
