This belongs in the garbage bin...
I watched the movie after seeing the trailer, which I thought was some youtube joke just to see if it was real. What a joke, this is the worst movie I've seen in a very long time. This Hollywood-ized version of a comic book is just a soulless money-grab.
From a filmmaking perspective, its awful. The writing, directing, stunts, special effects, and the acting are all TERRIBLE! Every action scene seems to drag on forever and are VERY boring. The character development was poor, dialogue uninteresting, and there were holes in the basics of the story which were so big that it was distracting. Partway thru, you actually root for the villains to win just so the film will end.
Low budget = cheap and lifeless actors. Actor Tim Abell (Riot) seems to be the only member of the Cross team to actually take his scenes seriously. No one else seems to have any knowledge of guns or how they actually work. Scenes with Blackfire and War are annoying, lacked chemistry, and were completely humorless. Jokes all fall flat line, after line.
I'm only giving this movie a 1 star because I can't give it ZERO STARS... Please save yourself the trouble by not wasting money on this movie and if you can watch it for free, just stab your eyes with a fork. You will feel much better than wasting your time with the horrible story line and even worse acting. Sony and the film makers should be embarrassed to have their name attached to this groan-inducing train wreck of a movie.
