I was totally let down by the movie. The story line and plot seemed like it would make a great horror movie, but the acting slaughtered it. The main character is a too generic representation of the hero and foreseer, the little girl was horrible with the little acting she did, and the killing of the two boys was completely superfluous to the movie and the execution was completely talentless. Oh, and there was also the classic "Hey guys?....... Nothin" attempt at a warning. How flippin' generic is that. Good plot, horrible acting, horrible script, horrible movie.


From bad to worse

This movie had some of the worst acting I have ever seen. I mean, it was truly bad! I can't completely blame the actors, though. With the line they were given, I am not even sure that Mel Gibson and Julia Roberts could have pulled this off. Not only was the dialogue stilted and unrealistic, parts of the movie were just downright stupid. I can't get into the most ignorant scene as it would be a spoiler, but I will say that the actions of some of the characters will have you shaking your head or even pounding a chair arm, saying, "That is just stupid! No one would do that." I gave this 2 stars instead of one simply because the premise was interesting, but you really shouldn't waste your money.
