Finally saw the movie.

Stopped about halfway. I just could not stomach this stupid shit. Wish I could get my money back from Amazon.

Good thing you didn't see it in the theater. I had to hold my breath until I passed out.

They totally screwed the pooch on this one.

Flynnís wife was very involved in this movie so I had hopes of it being a mid-level type movie. Casting was terrible.

At least Kyle Mills is doing a good job continuing the series. When I was chatting with him in email he told me ďRest assured Iím writing my fingers off.Ē
