How did this movie get 7.1 rating with no reviews yet?


I think some cast and crew and family members attached to this movie have been on this site.

The question answers itself. Very few small/medium budget films start off with a realistic rating. It's a disgusting practice and I wish IMDB could do something about it. :(

I often wonder about that. It's already down to 6.5 now, only 12 hours later. Maybe IMDB ought to not show any character until 100 votes are in?

IMDB ratings are the most useless f'ing things on this planet.

So true, only come to read comments.

If you click on the ratings it will expand them out. Once there it will offer a breakdown of people who have voted, take note of the scores by IMDB Staff or the Top Voters, I would recommend this for a more accurate result.

Be warned though, most professional reviewers would never rate a movie above an 8/10 unless it's truly exceptional. A 10/10 is basically every movies aim but should always be considered unobtainable.

That said, your correct. It's extremely common for "low budget" films to have the "fresh" actors come on and give dodgy scores in an attempt to increase viewers. Regardless of how bad a film is, the more exposure it gets the better it will do.

It's down to 4.6 as all the JCVD fan boys discover it's doesn't go down the chop socky line. For that very reason I give it a 5/10.🐭
