Lame, filthy movie

First of all, this is a B-film through and through. The movie was very boring.. Too fast paced and very hard to follow...it makes you guess certain plot points, as well as the entire film setting. Terribly written script/screenplay. Large amounts of foul language, multiple bloody murders, and full frontal nudity of multiple women. Much more violence and sex is also insinuated. Don't waste your time with this one, and don't let your kids either.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking

Great movie

I really liked it. if you like sci-fi, give it a watch. There is a scene however with topless women at a strip club, and a decent amount of swearing... So probably not the best choice for younger kids and young teens.
