Movie Reviews

Terrible, very depressing AWFUL film
(1 out of 5 stars)

"There is not one thing to recommend this horribly depressing film. Mike Meyers ends up with a gun shot in his forehead and I suspect he wishes it had happened at the start of this film so he could have been out of it earlier.The accents are extremely hard to understand, especially the children who have the most dialogue so many of the lines are completely lost.You can't even turn on subtitles to understand what is going on as the only ones offered are in Spanish.The main boy is a truly unpleasant, mean character given to temper tantrums, spitting at people, kicking them, fighting with everyone. A viewer wishes he would be the one who gets shot just because he is so unpleasant.The package asks if you believe in miracles. The only miracle is that this truly unpleasant film ever got made and released. AVOID IT!"
Had potential but disappointed
(1 out of 5 stars)

"This movie tries to be hard biting drama with a message, but it got lost in a wilderness of poor srcipt and underdeveloped charactars.
The kids are annoying rather than lovable. I had no interest in anyone. We watched it to the end in the hopes that somewhere there would be a glimmer of what could have been.
Right at the end there's a good example of the poor plot.
The neighbours arrive to complain about the meteor and the main kid (who I cared so much about I have no idea what his name was) talks about how that started the "war of the metoer", but they won - no explanation of how, no footage of the war, just that they won. Why even mention this? Again, a plot line that goes nowhere.
Mike Myers didn't do a bad job - none of the actors did - they just had nothing to work with. This movie just seemed to be trying to ride the coattails of other recent Irish movies that do have good storylines. It was a waste of almost two hours."
