Rewatch Value 1.0
MILDLY ENTERTAINING WITH NO REWATCH VALUE I started watching the movie b/c the girl to the right (on the cover with her hair tied up) looked like an actress I'd seen in another drama before. Little did I know that I would be treated to one of the most gruelsome gore fests in cinema. Now don't get the wrong idea, I simply detest gore, but the ones you find here are so gory, they're almost comically so. In terms of acting, they definitely cast the right actress into each role. May not seem so at first, but by the finale, you really appreciate their casting choices. Now the story, I don't want to spoil it too much, but it's basically what you get when you put The Truman Show and The Village (both Hollywood/Western movies) together mixed with tearing/cutting people in half Darth-Maul style. This is easily the weakest part of the movie. There isn't a single original idea here. And b/c of this, you find many plot holes here that were easily explained away in The Truman Show, like the camera angles. Anyways, I thought it was a pretty entertaining movie. But I wouldn't want to watch it again b/c of the gore. Just once is enough...
