The shills are out... hyped voting.
With 22 votes, 19 of them giving a wonderful 10/10 and the other three trying to redress the balance with 1/10, there is some vote-rigging going on here. This is NOT a 10/10 movie... (not even by the wildest stretch of the imagination) maybe the system needs to be fixed, because posting an overall rating based on such obvious manipulation of a relatively low sampling will make people waste their time (and money)... and only serve to devalue IMDb's reputation.
The movie itself is a pot-boiler. It's OK if you've got time on your hands. It's not going to win any awards or go any way to enhance the reputations of the cast and crew... but it's OK if you've got nothing better planned (like cleaning the grout in the shower). To put the voting in perspective, Netflix voters gave it a 3.3/5 for about the same number of voters... the only critic review listed gave it 1/5 ...
Allowing the system to be gamed devalues the whole rating system. Automatically flagging patterns like this is such an easy thing to do, and is absolutely not a difficult code implementation... any code monkey worth his salt will knock it out in ten minutes.
Clean house please. Bish
