Terrible pacing and script

I kept wondering throughout the film why the pacing and editing was so terrible. Not to mention the whole plot, or how the plot came off in the film at least. Well, the film finally gets to the end, and I see a name "Terry Malick". I start swearing thinking this must be the brother of that pretentious director Terence Malick who makes terrible,tedious and plotless movies all the time. Then I come to IMDB and find out that Terry Malick is really Terence Malick, and that solves the riddle of why this film is utterly terrible. Stay away.
