Crazy Credits

Dedicated to the brave men, women and children who died as heroes on that fateful sunny morning of September the 11th, 2001. I thought long and hard before ending this film with the last spoken line of, 'Let's Roll', and figured it was to honor those who have fallen. In a sense, terrorists are like the living dead, mindless drones who march off to complete their crazed tasks because they don't know any better. May god, any god, have mercy on their souls. 9/11 'A cry for help, a day to remember.' See more »

The most awesome worst movie ever!!!
12 February 2007 | by dhgilmoreSee all my reviews

This movie is so horrendously bad that it is actually awesome!!! This is the kind of movie that revels (unintentionally) in its atrociousness. There is absolutely no saving grace to this movie whatsoever. Mike Berube as Neil the cameraman is the only member of the cast not 100% bereft of talent of any kind (he has 99% no talent). As for Mr. Patterson's writing and directing ability: One wishes he had kept his penchant for self-expression to himself..... However I am strangely compelled to give this movie a 2/10 just simply because it is so mind-boggingly heinous in its marginal attempts at acting , plot and story that this is without a doubt the most awesome god-awful movie I have ever seen....
