I'm just going to start by saying I'm not entirely sure what was going on with this film.

Once again I had this film in my Netflix watch list because I remembered reading about it in Empire magazine and thinking that it sounded like something I would watch.

I thought I knew what the film was going to be about, but yet again I was totally wrong. Most of the acting was actually okay and the story wasn't too bad but the biggest problem was the special effects. Now let me tell you, some of them were just so awful.
The film started and I was like oh this looks pretty cool, but then there was this chase scene on a motorbike and I had to do a triple take, I could not believe what I was seeing.

Bad special effects/CGI is always incredibly and these are just terrible.

Rating: 6/10
