Trivia

The text of the (real) Bandera file on the computer screen reads: "DEMIAN, BANDERA E You would think that a huge file like this would tell you something. Not so. I just open up my paint program and let my brain dribble out on the monitor. Bandera doesn't eve(n) exist, you know. He is just a character in a movie! I can't believe that I'm trying to write bio on a man who doesn't even exist. Now I have to write a second collumn. Oh, the tedium... This paragraph won't even have the benefit of my sense of humor. I'm so over having to write this blurb that I can't think of anything to say. This is a real bummer. PRESS ENTER FOR UPDATE" See more »

Goofs

Derek Leigh and his family live in a modest, 1950s ranch-style home. Later, we are shown an aerial view of the neighborhood and see nothing but huge, expensive new homes with tile roofs. See more »

Worst film i have seen since Robot Jox
28 February 2008 | by angfudSee all my reviews

Really bad. So bad in fact i think i might throw up on myself. The only reason i chose to give this movie one star is because there is no lower rating. i would rather crap in my hand and eat it than watch this film again. The only slight little tiny bit of credibility that this film carries is that it contains the terrible acting abilities of 'Warchild' from point break. Didn't have enough money for good sets, good script, good lighting, good acting, didn't even have enough money to get Pat Morita to play the Sensei instead of the bald old 'poor man's' Mr. Miyagi. And as for the constant tilting camera...what the hell were these guys thinking? i have motion sickness and not to mention the nightmares i am going to have when i think of the most useless piece of cinematic trash that was ever pushed out of the sloppy rectal cavity of the crappiest production team to ever to walk the earth. WORST FILM EVER (capitals means I'm yelling)
