Goofs

When we are first introduced to the chess players Elohim (Danny Glover) and Lu (Vinnie Jones) at the chessboard, the board itself is set up incorrectly. Kings and Queens are reversed, because the board is rotated 90º from the correct starting position. Players set up the board so that White has a dark square on his/her lower left, the a1 square, so the White Queen starts the game on a white square, d1, and the White King on a dark square, e1. Elohim's K is on d1 and his Q on e1. This is a common mistake for novice chess players. See more »

Don't waste your time
19 July 2016 | by hammer-400-401899See all my reviews

A B-grade movie and a bad one at that. The film obviously had a small budget and it showed.

The film lacked atmosphere. There was no ambiance of background sounds, noise etc. The scenes outdoors where far too quiet. Plus where is the public? There were no people seen in the background. Making the scenes look obvious they were filed in a studio (rather than on location).

And what's worse than the acting was the lack of basic FX. Wait, I change that, the acting was worse.

Don't waste one and half hours of your time watching this. That time is better spent watching the grass grow.
