Telling the story of two friends and struggling tech entrepeneurs trying to create a device that reduces the weight of objects (for better storage and transport) and stumbling upon the ability to travel back…
Dear oh dear. I imagine if I'd gone to one of the teenage writers on my website and said 'write me a Wolverine movie and make it SUPER AWESOME!' then this would have been the result. A mess from start to finish - woeful dialogue, badly-plotted action sequences, the kinds of acting I might expect to find at a zombie convention after happy hour, and the most underused set of great X-universe characters since... well, this film.

Heartwarming comedy about a man and his chainsaw versus AN UNSTOPPABLE ARMY OF THE UNDEAD. Only recently bettered by Shaun Of The Dead. I could pick all kinds of holes in this if I wanted to, but I'm not going to because it is a film that is Awesome. And Awesome films defy mortal standards of reviewing and rating. No 20-paragraph dissection of the films flaws can ever top the majesty of a film containing lines like 'You're in command of two things right now, Jack and Shit. And Jack just left town.'
