    I genuinely think this film could have actually had some potential if it had completely embraced its overall ridiculousness and reflected the self-aware tone from its trailer. 
    Of course the trailer was just another well edited one for another Hollywood blockbuster manipulating audiences into thinking the film is something its not, as its is insanely boring.
