Bitter Lake: disappointing?


"The clincher that irrevocably destroyed any remaining hope of salvaging the movie is the final 'climactic' death. What makes this one any different from the others? Nothing...except for a particularly trite stock sound effect that many folks ought to recognize by now. That single effect transformed this movie from 'a good concept with potential' into 'a pathetic waste of time.'"

Would that be the Wilhelm scream?
