  1. I figured this would be mindless action and will probably still check it out, just not right now. My brain has suffered enough lately with bad flicks. Although if there’s lots of violence and stuff blows up I may be able to forgive any problems it has.

    I’m just still too scared to check it out! HAHA!

    Man I hated this movie, I can see how fans of Dexter like yourself could dig his performance but from the fat guy eating waffles to the stupid ‘ping’ aspect they put in the movie, I thought this film was a total dud. And why was Ludicrus is this? lol Oh man….

    It pissed me off that they made Amber Valletta look like Mila Jovovich in The 5th Element too. Could it have been more of a carbon copy? I was waiting for her to start spewing some ancient alien language!

    after I read your review I know why Butler didn’t waste much time promoting this one

    I love first person shooters, but hated this movie. Even as a fan of Dexter, I was let down. The main problem is the script!

    Ummm… I’m about to watch this even though I know it will probably be atrocious. I’ll let you know soon ;)

    Excellent review Heather. As you know, we (again) agree on the subject.It would have been a solid movie, had it just focused on being a mindless action explosion fest with over the top stunts and death. Unfortunately, this film actually dares trying to preach cheap moral values and tries to pass itself as a satire of our society. Worse, the action sequences are very ordinary and oh god, the hyper-editing gave it a cheap, pitiful look.

    I thought Michael C Hall was decent but not scary enough (he should have been more like Mark Strong in Sherlock Holmes, cunning and dark) Butler did not look like he had fun at all. Amber Valetta had a seriously tasteless role and heck everyone else was unmemorable at best.
