    It wasn\'t horrible but it wasn\'t good either. I recommend renting it. It could have been better but it wasn\'t a total flop.

    Horrible movie, been done so many times before and they added nothing new or special to this one. Hard to believe such a weak script gets made into a movie. I could have wrote this one and had more excitement in it. So many bad movies lately, that\'s why I only go to the cheap show or wait for the DVD. Bad, bad, bad!
