So every Sunday during football season the Fox crew gives Howie Long crap about his acting career. So how good can this movie be. Well to start with the opening sequence had me at the edge of my seat and got me very interested in the movie. Maybe it is the idea of dying by fire that scares me. The movie does move along at a good pace. The only real draw back I had to this film was that some of the special effects were just plain bad. The story was good but not good enough to justify spending any more than a rental on this movie. It is worth renting and will entertain you.
Oh my God! Why oh why do I watch the filth that Jason throws my way? At best this should be on Lifetime as a made-for-TV movie. I donít know how I even made it all the way through the whole thing. The acting was bad (go figure) the effects were bad, and I hate Howie Long with a passion which doesnít help either. And why is it rated R? Donít waste your time on this one. Iíve already suffered for you. The only thing this has on the movie Alexander is it wastes a little less of your time.
