Worst insult ever to the fans
30 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

Normally i comment a lot, i explain my self, i take references but for this i have only one word to say : P.U.R.G.E

Avoid and run away. If you do not know the 2 originals movie RUN TO SEE THEM but in any case don't waste your time with this CANCER.

This movie is a perfect definition How to kill an amazing movie Licence.

I just have the feeling after watching this terrible purge of having been raped. Ghostbusters was for me a reference in so many ways but this one is simply an insult to any fans.
