What’s Good About It?

The idea seems sound. Hopefully they take it serious. It could be cool

A lot of unknowns so far. The actors and director don’t have much experience, and the film could end up a really bad direct to video release.

Our Clever Prediction

I’m giving it a chance, but only until I’ve seen the trailer. I need to get a feel for the tone before I commit to it. Still, I doubt it’ll make much money at the box office.
