London: Hollywood actress Megan Fox`s latest film `Passion Play` co-starring Mickey Rourke, is going straight to DVD after it was slammed by critics.

The 24-year-old star has gone for considerable skin show but the movie, which premiered at the Toronto Film Festival in September, will be released on DVD as it failed to get distributors.

Numerous viewers walked out of the screening in Canada last year and critics branded it ‘awful’, a ‘mess’ and ‘an absolute car wreck’, Daily Mail reported.

The film is another blow to Fox`s acting career, which has nosedived since she parted ways with the successful `Transformers` franchise after a fight with the director.

Her other film `Jennifer`s Body`, which was released in 2009, could earn only USD 6.8 million. `Jonah Hex` too released last summer but did average at the box office.

`Passion Play` is about an angel who is under the thumb of a ruthless gangster and is saved by a trumpet player down on his luck where Rourke plays washed-up jazz musician.
