Clint Says: Don't even bother
This could be the funniest film of the year. Unfortunately, it isn't supposed to be funny.
The level of ridiculousness reached by this catastrophe of a movie is mind-boggling. I can't even begin to understand how any studios or movie executives thought that this could be a good idea. If this film loses only $20 Million it will be a miracle.
There are so many scenes that are supposed to be suspenseful or dramatic, but that ended up being comical, that my jaw hurt from laughing so hard and so often. Throw on top of that the southern accents that are so thick the people sound Australian, and dialogue written so poorly that you will literally cringe because it is painful to hear, and you have a movie that has a great shot at making a lot of "worst of" lists this year.
The only way I could ever recommend this movie is if you are in the mood to watch something so terrible just for laughs. Otherwise this film is unwatchable.
