Horrible controls and gameplayThis is one of the worst movie video games. The only reason I didn’t return my copy was so no one else would have to suffer playing this game.

Horrible, but keeps you busyI do not recommend this game at all. I am not a big fan of movie games. I got this, because it was cheap. I was not an exiting game, but at least it kept me busy for a while.
