now, we've all suspected it for a while: but it turns out that, yes, jessica alba is terrible at acting. and also, apart from sin city, has never made a good film. so this fits nicely in with her consistency.
i actually struggled to find a reason to give this any stars at all. rubbish acting, faulty special effects, and... oh, that's the end of the story. i wasn't expecting a tour de force, but i did think i might get an enjoyable action flick.
