I bought this film on the strength of the reviews below, which is something I usually do every so often.
Er, guys...were we watching the same film?
Throwing every nationality and the kitchen sink into this film, and building upon such childish stereotypes they're borderline racist at some points, this movie is as bad as they come.
The acting is truly diabolical. I mean, seriously, some of the worst acting I have ever seen, and the majority of the film is in subtitles, varying from Japanese to Swiss, to French and English. When it's not in subtitles, it's practically unbearable, the acting is that bad. You will want this lot dead. And fast.
They die, of course...but most of the death scenes are lacking in imagination. Add to that the bad guys are taken out fairly quickly, and you're left with a film that just rambles on for the last 20 minutes or so.
But let's get back to the acting...cos it really is so bad, I had a hard time enjoying some of the kills that didn't overly suck. The French guy is a walking joke; the American couple deliver their lines with all the gusto of a dead goldfish; and the bad guys are a pale imitation of hillbilly families from better horror films.
The setting isn't all that new either, if you've seen the likes of Triangle. Just...avoid...please...this won't even sustain as a guilty pleasure, it really is that bad.
Any redeeming qualities? The lead actress (in such a thankless role) walks away with a semi-decent performance, although given how wonky the script is, that's a miracle in an of itself.
