Oh God. Oh dear God. Where do I begin? I'll start by saying this is, perhaps, the worst movie I ever saw. It fails at every level. It's so bad, it's REALLY bad.
No one in this movie, except Lance Henriksen, can act. He only makes a small appearance. I mean, imagine taking ten random people of the street, and give them an acting job. No, make that the worst of 10 people. No scrap that - imagine taking a dog from the street, learn him how to talk, and give him a leading role. No, that would be too funny. It's simply...horrible. The fact that Lance is in this, makes it even worse. Has anyone seen 'Suing the Devil' with Malcolm mcDowell? It is an extreme offset with the 'talent' of the other actors, who should desperately look for an other line of work. He keeps your brain active with false hope, so you stay awake during this nightmare, and suffer the full 100%. The constant 1 sec delay between their interaction, the way they deliver their lines...oh God...
I - so - wanted to turn this movie off, but as a cruel joke to myself, I kept watching. It progressively gets worse. The movie starts of as an adventure - thriller, and about in the middle - way too late - after some tedious and failing character development/filler, makes a switch to a 'slasher'. You will care for NONE of the actors. You will NOT care about the slasher. You will NOT be satisfied when someone gets killed. Why are some actors where they are? Why did they go there? Who/why are other people there and doing what they do? Why do we have supposedly two 2 million dollar relics in a 'museum' housing only 2 pieces? why isn't ANYONE or anything guarding it? Everybody simply converges there, breaking in, at the same time - slasher, a random thief, our heroes; and the second group of heroes. No one can get out somehow, the only phone is cut, no one out of 10 or so people has a cell phone.
The slasher's kills are the worst ever. I won't comment further to prevent spoilers, but...they are so stupid.
The way they leave the slasher knocked out only to try an all-out attack later...the abnormal death-defying ease with which he walks towards guns (he has no powers at all)...the ruining of any hint pf realism with a 3 sec '3D' CGI...ohh...
I couldn't have made a more aggravating movie if I tried. Recommended to give to someone you want to de-friend.
