Rubbbbbish!
8 September 2019 | by tesswyskoSee all my reviews

Elitist, Racist, HORRIBLE story writing, AWFUL cinematography, in fact the ONLY thing this movie has going for it which keeps it out of the 1 star zone is a shockingly good CAST, who deserve BETTER than the DRIVEL they were presented! It makes me wonder if their agents even read the scripts at all before they signed their clients to it, or was blackmail involved?

And as for any kind of storyline continuity or resolution for that matter, DON'T BOTHER watching it! The movie LITERALLY dumps you right at the climax and teaches both the main character and the audience NO LESSON! There's no outcome! As a bit of a videophile, I've NEVER seen ANYTHING like this! It leaves you where the movie started! HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT!
