very creative with sinister wit & intelligence
26 June 2019 | by aminifatimaaaSee all my reviews

Extreme Job is a refreshing breather from reality and emotionally heavy content dominating the industry. Genuinely funny and entertaining- although utterly ridiuclous, the humour is well-executed with a charming ensemble cast. The characters, the direction, the climax, and the conflict come together flawlessly creating this unique film.
