I feel duped but it's my fault
I'm not going to lie. I was lured in by the 100% Rotten Tomatoes and the 10/10 ratings here on IMDB. It should have been red flag enough when I saw Mimi Rodgers was in the cast about an end of the world apocalypse (The Rapture, anyone?)
Alas I didn't listen to my own gut feeling and trudged forward. 90 minutes later i sought my sanity and went through reviews more deeply. Blasted quick draw!
Generally speaking, the female lead does a good job with what she's given and Ben, the loyal security lackey, does fine. But everything else is basically regurgitated tropes from movies or TV shows that did it better, more creatively and with a sense of cinematic substance. This was like watching a school project.
I wish I had made the right decision and spent those 90 minutes cleaning my dirty oven, or staring at my couch, or hunting Sphinx wasps in 115 degree weather. As a note, I'm uncertain if Sphinx wasps can survive in 115 degree weather...or for that matter the 90 minutes of this movie.
Like I said earlier: I even came back to delve more deeply into IMDB reviews to see if I had missed something. Which I had. So this is my gift to you - that you might not miss this. Do NOT watch this movie. Rest assured, you'll be more entertained by my review than the movie. And if you're not entertained by my review, I believe I've proven my point.
