    The movie had potential but it was preeettyyy slow & i had a hard time staying interested, the characters also just did not fit in together so basically i think i just didnt like the plot at all, i give it 1 star out of 20 for trying

    Sadly this movie was badly cast. Elijah Wood is just not believable as a leading man that several women in the movie just throw themselves at. Great plot but bad editing leaves holes in a story line that moves too slow. John Hurt is the only birght spot in a slow dull movie.
