don't believe the other reviews
27 October 2012 | by datmagnietSee all my reviews

1 point is still way too much for this, I watched it because another review said it was great, it really isn't though, unless you have no brain whatsoever.

it has a very poor acting & an even worse story, an ending you can see coming from a million miles away even if it's only 1 single shot. need some tension? just throw in a few eerie stokes on a violin, yeah, that'll do.. the whole thing is like that'll do.. cutting vegetables with eerie violin strokes can be a good thing but not when every living soul knows whats going to happen next.

For me the worst part is the lameness of the story: a guy comes home after a period a being far away to propose to his girl, but his car breaks down within visual distance of their house.. instead of walking the last 3 minutes (that's how long other characters in the movie need for it) he decides to wait for help by standing in the middle of the road & gets run over by some driver who wasn't paying attention..... -_- Really ???? stuff like that just totally knocks me of, can't help it.

The only good thing about this movie is that the main character is a hot chick, but me being a single male i realize that isn't an objective opinion ;p
