  1. It’s sad when I hear about this from an overseas film critic since they saw it in the previous year or so (Mathew Buck a.k.a. Film Brain in this case for me), but I just don’t get how anyone could have looked at this film before it went into any theater and said “Oh yeah, this works!” Film Brain even ranks this as one of the worst “2016” films that he saw that year. You can see his “Projector” review on that film and even see his “Best & Worst of 2016” video for more detail on that perplexing chestnut.

    Ho-ly cow! I believe I saw promotional events for this movie on a writing site (they periodically do this with movies and shows—have fanfiction contests for them). The fact that this movie is so poor just reinforces the quality issues with the site itself. While people can definitely make lemons out of lemonade, you should give them better base material to work from and for in the first place, instead of having them help promote a subpar film.

    This movie caught my eye because of a story I read that was based on a similar film—perhaps the other one you mentioned—so I was thinking it might turn out to be fairly interesting. Guess not.

    By the way, I cracked up when I clicked that highlighted line about “incredibly cheap and tasteless” and it linked me to the Transformers “Knight” movie. Youch!
